Lauren Alaina’s been hard at work recording her debut album for 19/Mercury Nashville/Interscope and we can confirm one of the songs that she has recorded for the album! Check out the title, credits, and a performance of the song by one of its cowriters after the jump!
Fittingly enough, the song Lauren recorded is called “Georgia Peaches.”
The song is cowritten by Blair Daly, Mallary Hope, and Rachel Proctor. Blair Daly is a mostly country/pop songwriter who has cowritten songs for and with country/pop chanteuses LeAnn Rimes and Katie Armiger. He also cowrote the title track of David Archuleta’s sophomore album: “The Other Side Of Down”. Mallary Hope is a fellow Universal Nashville singer/songwriter signed to MCA Records who has released the singles “Love Lives On” and “Blossom In The Dust”. Rachel Proctor is a country/pop singer/songwriter who is best known for her own top 20 country single “Me & Emily” and for cowriting Martina McBride’s “Where Would You Be.” She has also cowritten another album cut for Martina (“Everybody Does”) as well as the 2 songs from Kristy Lee Cook’s debut album (“Why Wait” and “Homesick”). Rachel Proctor tweeted Lauren this message:
@Lauren_Alaina your video is beautiful. Can’t wait to hear you sing Georgia Peaches ;)
Check out videos of cowriter Mallary Hope performing the sassy song, which namechecks fellow Georgia natives Jason Aldean and Alan Jackson:
P.S. I’ve been working on a new Idols Gone Country but this rated its own separate post. If you have news/tips you think belong there, please tweet me @windmillsmusic. Thanks!
