Scotty McCreery On His Friendship With Lauren Alaina: ‘She’s Still Like a Sister’ – Scotty McCreery is still friends with, and a fan of, Lauren Alaina. The two met on Season 10 of American Idol, where McCreery was crowned the winner in 2011, with Alaina the runner-up. Although their busy careers, and different locations, keep them from spending much time together, the father of one says he still loves every chance he gets to spend with Alaina. “She’s still like a sister to me,” McCreery tells Star City Broadcasting. “I never made the move to Nashville, so I don’t see her or too many artists that often. I’m still in Carolina. But any chance I get to see her, it’s like catching up right where we left off. I think I’ll always be like a brother to her, and she’ll always be like a sister to me. We went through that show together. Nobody, no matter how much you talk about it, nobody can truly get what it was like, unless you were right there.” – Everything Nash

So I came up with the idea to kind of give a love song a dark edge, and I’m really proud of being able to strike that balance,” she told PEOPLE while appearing on PEOPLE in 10. “It’s a little bit risqué, so I was very, very excited that my mom was like, ‘That’s a lot, but I love the song, and I think people are gonna love it, too,” she continued. – Read more at People
