From The Archives: 2012 Lauren Alaina closes Riverbend Festival

(CHATTANOOGA) – Ten years ago, the Riverbend scored a big homecoming show to close out that year’s festival.

Country singer Lauren Alaina was just starting her professional career in Nashville.

In the previous two years, American Idol made her a star and she had just recorded her first album.

So her 2012 homecoming as a Riverbend headliner was a triumphant return.

We’ve put together 2 days of clips from March 15 & 16, 2012.
