American Idol singer in Franklin

Written by 

art alainaAmerican Idol singer Lauren Alaina will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, July 3, at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts in Franklin.

 

Runner-up on Season 10 of American Idol, Alaina’s strong vocal performances earned comparisons to the Country genre’s premier vocalists, Carrie Underwood and Martina McBride. A record-breaking 122.4 million votes were cast for Lauren and Idol winner Scotty McCreery. Soon after, she made her much-anticipated Grand Ole Opry debut to sing her debut hit, “Like My Mother Does.” Her debut album “Wildflower” was released in 2011 and landed at No. 2 on the Billboard’s Top Country Album chart and an impressive No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200. 

Tickets are $25, $30 and $35.

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
