This track isn't a career-changing move for Alaina, but does mark her solid introduction into the songwriting world. On her debut, she only co-wrote one song, the relatively unknown "Funny Thing About Love," and she did co-write her 2013 single "Barefoot and Buckwild." But with this new single, and this new EP, she is really stepping up to the songwriting plate. Every song on the upcoming Lauren Alaina (EP) was cowritten by her, with cowriters including close friend Emily Weisband, one of our favorites Alex Masters, and pop sensation Meghan Trainor. This is the introduction to her real voice as a songwriter, with an emphasis on the power of her vocals. This song is taking her on the right track, and is sure to give her the recognition she deserves now as an artist, not just as that girl who was the runner up on American Idol.
