Lauren Alaina has revealed the release date and title of her debut album on Mercury Nashville. The album titled, “Wildflower,” will be released on October 11, 2011. In an email newsletter to her fans, Lauren had this to say about the album,
I feel like it has a flavor for everybody. It’s a mixture of all different songs, so I hope it will appeal to all different kinds of people. There are fast songs for people who like up-tempos that you can dance to, and there are also tearjerkers for people who like slower ballads. I tried to get songs that are all a little different so that we could bring a fresh feel to each and every song.
My producer is Byron Gallimore and he is so awesome. He has worked with Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Lee Ann Womack, and now me! How cool is that? I really enjoyed working with him. I was nervous at first because I thought it was going to be really intense and hard and maybe even intimidating, but he made me feel right at home. I consider him family now. It was a great learning experience for me and I had a lot of fun.
She also went on to talk about how cool it was for her to be able to record in other cities because of being on tour and seeing how different studios are laid out. About why she titled the album the way she did, she had this to say,
Wildflower is the perfect name for my first album. I would consider myself a wildflower because wildflowers are sweet, but then they have a little bit of spunk to them – they are “wildflowers.” I like to have a lot of fun and I’m really sassy, so I feel like a wildflower would be a good description of who I am as a person. I also recorded a song on this album called “She’s a Wildflower” that was written by Steve McEwan, Hillary Lindsey, and Gordie Sampson.
