Lauren Alaina Awarded 4 Gold Records at the Opry
Lauren Alaina was surprised backstage Tuesday night (July 20th) before her performance on the Grand Ole Opry with a plaque celebrating her song “Getting Good” being certified GOLD® by the RIAA. “Getting Good,” written by Emily Weisband, is included on her Getting Good EP. The American Idol and Dancing with the Stars alum also realized a childhood dream when she got to record a special mix of “Getting Good” with her friend/mentor, superstar Trisha Yearwood.
“This achievement as a female in Country music is such an honor,” said Lauren. “Thank you to my fans for listening and buying the music I pour my heart into. These Gold records are just as much yours as they are mine.”
Additionally, the country singer received the news tonight that her singles “Like My Mother Does” from her debut album Wildflower as well as “Doin’ Fine” and the title track “Road Less Travelled” from her career-changing sophomore album Road Less Travelled were also certified GOLD® by the RIAA.
“Last night at the @opry was CERTIFIABLY GOLD,” Lauren wrote on social media, “My team surprised me with FOUR gold records. This achievement as a female in country music is such an honor. Thank you to my fans for listening&buying the music I pour my heart into. These gold records are just as much yours.”

About the song “Getting Good” Lauren remarked: “‘Getting Good’ is all about loving where you are right now. In society, we are all moving so fast, and that’s such a wonderful thing, but I think it’s also really important sometimes to be still and count your blessings, and this song is a reminder of that.”
