She unleashes her inner warrior in this boot-stomping number that takes on one of the strongest issues too many people face every day: self-shame.
Having conquered her own demons of body image and shame fueled by the ruthless silver tongue of public opinion, this American Idol alum steps out in, what’s likely, her best single to date and claims what she once thought unreachable – love for herself.
Lauren Alaina has been very open about her struggle with an eating disorder and how being thrust into the spotlight at just 15 years old was fairly detrimental at a time when you’re supposed to be learning how to love yourself.
She’s come a long way since those early days on the ‘Idol’ stage and this video proves just how strong of a force she will be in country music!
Throughout her latest single, “Road Less Traveled”, she pairs breathtaking and captivating imagery with lyrics that roll through you like thunder – leaving you with the unshakable reminder that you aren’t what people say you are or what culture dictates you should be.
If you trust your rebel heart, ride it into battle / Don’t be afraid, take the road less traveled / Wear out your boots and kick up the gravel / Don’t be afraid, take the road less traveled on / Oh, ooh whoa, oh, ooh whoa / Take the road less traveled
Truly one of the most powerful songs about self-affirmation and positive body image that we have ever heard, Lauren Alaina’s “Road Less Traveled” is a musical masterpiece that will earn a place in your heart after just one listen.
