Scotty McCreery Is Proud of Lauren Alaina’s Success & Sees It as Validating “Everything We Did on ‘Idol’” – “After ‘Road Less Traveled’ went number one, I texted Lauren and let her know how proud I was of her,” said Scotty. “We went through something together with Idol that no one will ever truly understand. It was a blast and fun, but they definitely put us through the wringer, so to go through that with her, she’ll always be kind of a sister to me. We don’t talk as much as we used to, but she’s such an awesome person. And, in my opinion, she’s got one of the best dang voices in Nashville. She’s a powerhouse. I’m so proud of her to get that number one. It kind of validates everything we did on Idol, and it’s so cool to see that success for her.” – Read more at NashFM
