WHAT IT IS: The Georgia native captured America’s heart when she appeared on Season 10 of American Idol. On 1/27, she followed up her first album, which debuted at #1, with the eagerly awaited Road Less Traveled. That was selected as one of Rolling Stone’s “Most Anticipated Albums of 2017”; each of its 12 songs was written by the young star. Its title track provided Alaina’s first Top 10 hit. She’s been nominated for several Teen Choice Awards and CMT Music Awards, and the singer/songwriter just received her first ACM nomination for New Female Vocalist of the Year. The “sassy Southerner with killer pipes” (according to PARADE) has shared the stage with superstars, including Alan Jackson and Carrie Underwood.
