Sitting on Top of the World is Lauren’s third full length album, after her 2011 debut Wildflower and 2017 sophomore effort, Road Less Traveled. She released two EPs, Getting Good in March 2020 and Getting Over Him in September 2020.
On the new set, Lauren includes the version of “Getting Good” that features country legend Trisha Yearwood. Additionally “Run,” “What Do You Think Of?” with Lukas Graham and “Getting Over Him” featuring Jon Pardi were first released on the Getting Over Him EP. Lauren dropped “If The World Was a Small Town” earlier this month.
Lauren co-wrote 14 of the 15 songs on Sitting Pretty at the Top of the World
Alongside songwriters Liz Rose, Lori McKenna, Hillary Lindsey, Emily Weisband, David Garcia, Ben Johnson, and more, the singer co-wrote 14 of the 15 songs on Sitting Pretty On Top of the World, including her “Getting Over Him” featuring Jon Pardi, which is currently climbing the country charts.
Lauren describes how personal this album is saying, “It’s about a dreamer becoming an achiever. It’s being broken and ending up healed. It’s all of me. The early chapters. The new beginnings. The hope for the future and total appreciation for the past. Taking the Road Less Traveled and ending up Sitting Pretty on Top of the World.”
As she promised, “It Was Me” penned by Hillary Lindsey and Lauren Alaina dropped when the pre-order went live. Lauren described the heartbreaking weeper as “my fav song I’ve ever written.” Listen to it below.
