About her upcoming album, Lauren reveals that she and her team have chosen songs from a couple of Carrie Underwood regulars, and hopes to have songs she co-wrote on the album
In the meantime, she has picked all her songs for her first album. Now she has to do the vocal tracks. “I love upbeat songs that people can dance and have fun, ” she said. “But I also love country music that tells a great story. I think I got some of both.” Among the writers she’s working with includes Brett James (who helped write “Flat on the Floor” and “Jesus Take the Wheel” for Carrie) and Luke Laird (Carrie’s “So Small”) She hopes a song or two she helps write will make it on the album.
Lauren’s debut album comes out this fall. The American Idol Top 11 perform in New Orleans tonight.
