Lauren Alaina wins first ACM Award
LAS VEGAS, Nevada (WDEF) – Lauren Alaina has added another major milestone in her amazing two year streak in country music.
The Academy of Country Music has named the LFO graduate as their New Female Vocalist of the Year.
Lauren was up against Danielle Bradberry, Carly Pearce, and Raelynn.
She got the news in a surprise phone call from ACM award host, Reba McEntire.
And clearly, she wasn’t buying it at first.[su_spacer size=”40″]
This is her highest profile award win yet in her career. It follows her first number one hit (Road Less Traveled), her first top ten album (#3 Road Less Traveled), the #1 duet What Ifs and her first CMA nomination all in the last 15 months.
There will be some drama for Lauren in the live ACM telecast in three weeks.
She is up for Vocal Event of the year with Kane Brown for the smash hit “What Ifs.”
Brown, who also sang in the LFO choir with Lauren, was also nominated for New Male Vocalist of the Year.
But he lost to Brett Young.
