Country cutie Lauren Alaina didn’t win Season 10 of ‘American Idol,’ but she’s still enjoying all the perks that come with having been on the show. In fact, her latest professional coup is even better than winning the ‘Idol’ crown. The singer, who returned to the 'Idol' stage to perform her rawkin’ hit ‘Georgia Peaches’ on Thursday, March 8, tweeted the good news that she took part in a major new collaboration.

That’s huge news for our gal. Teaming up with ‘Idol’ judge Steven Tyler to lend that beautiful voice of hers to a new Aerosmith album is a really big deal, since they are one of the biggest acts in rock. Remember, Tyler has always had a soft spot for Alaina. He declared that the judges had found “the one” after her initial audition last season. He wasn’t right, but then again, it was up to the American voting audience, not him. Finishing second is nothing to sneeze at, though.

Alaina just added quite a nice item to her resume with this guest spot. She gets to dip her toes into another genre, which is a nod to her versatility, in addition to performing on a high profile album. Props to Tyler for putting his money where his big ol’ mouth is.

We can't wait to hear it.
