Lauren Alaina – Chattanooga Homecoming – Media

Lauren Alaina has a full day of activities scheduled for her hometown visit in Chattanooga TN today. Check out the schedule HERE.

Lauren sang “God Bless America” from Lookouts Field after throwing out the ceremonial first pitch. Earlier she visited Lakeview Fort Oglethorpe High School, where she sang “Anyway”. Later, she performed excerpts of “Flat on the Floor” and “Anyway” at Coolidge Park where she was presented the key to the city. Lauren cut back her song list–she was afraid of losing her voice. There’s a great timeline of the day HERE.

WRCB reports fans have flooded Coolidge Park, waiting for her arrival this afternoon. Keep checking that link for VIDEO. Another report from the Rome-News Tribune. Reportedly, 10,000 fans attended Lauren’s rally in Coolidge Park.

People covers Lauren’s visit to a shelter housing tornado victims, “”She’s trying to get her composure,” mom Kristy Suddeth said Saturday after a sobbing Lauren visited a shelter at the Cherokee Valley Baptist Church as part of her American Idol homecoming. “These people don’t need to see somebody crying. They need to see somebody smiling.”

    Indeed. She is a very sweet girl, with a very big heart.

    Thanks for the pictures, it seems that they really packed her day between the concert in Chattanooga and the events in Rossville.
    She seems to be very emotional in those pictures at the end of the day.

  • houstonrufus23

    My word. Lauren is as cute as a bug on a button. She is hard not to like. That’s all I have to say. And that voice don’t hurt.

    Very nice pictures. It’s a shame that stinking watermark was covering her beautiful face.

    Lauren cut back her song list–she was afraid of losing her voice

    Lauren did great with God Bless America.
    These last couple weeks will be the hardest because of the pressure, stress and your voice almost gone.
    And they will sing 3 songs instead of 2 like season 8.

    Good luck Lauren.

    I didn’t realize the tornado actually hit Lauren’s hometown. Must have been hard for her. She seems like such a sweet girl.

  • Lucy1234

    Looks like the article is making it’s way around the web.

    Will be interesting what they show on American Idol.

  • siddigrl

    Something has to be said….Lauren is NOT, I repeat NOT from Chattanooga TN. She is from NW GA (Rossville to be exact)….American Idol REFUSED to allow her to do her hometown parade in her hometown because they claimed we were not big enough to handle crowd control. Well, she is a GA girl not a Chattanooga girl. Get it right!

  • siddigrl

    Sorry…I am just a little upset that her tornado ridden hometown could have used the income generated from her appearance and American Idol refused them.
