    The Lauren Alaina/Carrie Underwood Idol Sisterhood Continues to Grow

    The Lauren Alaina/Carrie Underwood Idol Sisterhood Continues to Grow
    Lauren cuts a song that Carrie co-wrote, and Lauren still hopes to go on the road with her idol.

    Brad Schmitt | Published: Oct 12, 2011

    “Carrie Underwood has been a huge influence on who I am,” Lauren Alaina tells The Hollywood Reporter. “She started out the same way I did, and she is someone that I look up to so much.”

    So when Lauren was choosing songs for her debut album, Wildflower, which was just released, Lauren got excited when she saw “C. Underwood” listed as a co-writer for the song “Eighteeen Inches”—the distance between the heart and the head.

    The song, Lauren tells USA Today, reminds her of one of her friends.

    “She got married when she was 17, and she had a baby. And they moved here, to Nashville. Her husband's going to college and has a full-time job, and she stays at home with the baby, and she doesn’t know anyone here. She moved here to support him. That’s, like, the story of that song.”

    Carrie has even offered to take Lauren on the road.

    “I haven’t talked to her in a few months,” Lauren tells the Reporter. “I have her phone number, hopefully I’ll be seeing her pretty soon and maybe one day we’ll get to do something. I hope so.”

    Lauren seems to be getting a lot of press. I think mentioning Carrie so frequently is good for both of them.
    Thanks for posting.

    Lauren is a good singer, so is Scotty; but there will never be another Carrie. Carrie is in a class of her own. I just can't help myself b/c as I was watching Lauren I thought I'd rather be listening to CArrie.

    It would be great if Lauren tours with Carrie. Then I'll get to see them both.

    I would like for Carrie to take Lauren on the road with her as an opener. I would not be surprised if it happened. Carrie has a kind, giving heart and I think she will help Lauren and Scotty all she can. Carrie's best friend in Nashville (Brad) has taken Scotty out on tour with him---so Carrie will take Lauren.

    I think Lauren would be a great first opener for Carrie's next tour. Then get someone slightly bigger for the second slot.

    Thanks so much Danielle!

    I have a huge hunch she'll be touring with Carrie next year. Especially considering Scotty is with Brad... Not that Brad is associated with Idol but he has taken Carrie and Kellie right after Idol... With him taking Scotty, it would be perfect for Carrie to take Lauren. Lauren has so much to learn, and who better to learn from than a girl who went through the exact same thing 6 short years before!?

    I believe I heard somewhere that Scotty was performing.

    I would love to see Lauren and Carrie go on tour. But I somehow doubt it will happen as Lauren's first tour. Carrie doesn't have a new album out meaning tour would be at least several months away...whereas Lauren's album is already out so I would think she would be joining someone who has a new album out or is coming out very soon. My guess is she'll open for Martina McBride. I believe her album came out right around when Lauren's did.

    I believe Martina is going to be opening for George.
