Lauren Alaina has been very open about her past struggles with body image and the effect it's had on her music. She revealed in a recent interview with The Boot how writing about the personal things she went through has saved her.
“It was a crazy few years, and a lot of life-changing things happened. I felt like I was drowning at one point.”
“So I just started writing songs about those things. And then, suddenly, I woke up one day, and I was like, ‘I think I’ve written my album about all of these things,’ and then we went in and recorded it.”
“It’s crazy, because I feel like I’m so much more honest with this music.” Alaina adds, “and maybe that’s why people are connecting with it more, because I connect with it more.”
