American Idol’s Lauren Alaina Set for Film Debut in “Road Less Traveled”


American Idol season 10 runner-up Lauren Alaina is set to star in her first movie, Road Less Traveled.

The film is named for Lauren’s current single and co-stars Charlene Tilton (Dallas). The project has begun production in Knoxville, Tennessee and is produced by Marvista Entertainment with Executive Producers Fernando Szew (A Deadly Adoption) & Kristofer McNeeley (Great Plains) and producer Stacia Crawford (River Guard), directed by Blair Hayes (Bubble Boy) and written by Michael Shear and Samantha Shear (Killer App).

Road Less Traveled centers on Charlotte (Alaina) who is struggling with balancing her upcoming wedding with her songwriting career in Los Angeles. She finds herself searching for answers in her hometown of Harmony, Tennessee, where she runs into her high school sweetheart. Charlotte finds herself wondering what life would have been like if she had never left Harmony.

“I am so excited to be doing a movie,” Alaina tells Billboard. “This is a whole new world for me. I’m learning so much every day. We have such an awesome cast and crew and I can’t wait for everyone to see this new side of me.”

Check out more quotes from Billboard Magazine. Lauren was chosen as one of iHeartRadio’s “On the Verge” artists back in August.
