– Lauren Alaina Lauren Alaina is back with "Unlocked," her first release since signing to Big Loud Records. The six-song EP drops on June 9.
"It's been 13 years since we first met, and until a couple of years ago, I don't know that I ever slowed down for more than a day or two at a time," Alaina said. "I spent more time with the people that matter most to me – my family, my fiancé, my friends – during that period than I had in years. This music comes from my heart and my hometown. I am who I am because of where and who I come from, and I'm more me today than I've ever been. I can't wait to unlock this next chapter with you."
Announced first on her socials this morning, Alaina laid the foundation for the new EP with a minute and four-second teaser, narrating over b-roll footage of her time in the studio creating the music with producer Joey Moi. The release features a song with Lainey Wilson.

A Walk In The Bar (Lauren Alaina, Casey Brown, Lydia Vaughan, Parker Welling)

ike Her (Trannie Anderson, Joe Fox, Emily Landis, Ella Langley)
