Life Is Peachy For CMT Awards Nominee Lauren Alaina!
USA Weekend interviewed Lauren about her recent CMT nomination:
Lauren Alaina is up for the CMT Music Awards’ USA Weekend Breakthrough Video Award for her song Georgia Peaches (directed by David McClister) along with five other nominees. Her video celebrates all things fun and playful in the life of a Southern girl.
Between writing music, recording songs, taking online classes, and preparing her opening act for Sugarland’s “In Your Hands” tour, Alaina took time to chat with USA Weekend about friends, her “sassy” music video, and even her pet turtle.
This is your first major country music award nomination. What was running through your head when you heard the news?
Alaina: You know, every day of my life something new and exciting happens, but when you get nominated for something that you worked really hard on like a music video it’s a really good feeling. That’s our main goal as artists — for people to enjoy what we enjoy doing ourselves.
So how would you describe a group of girls who are “Georgia Peaches”?
Alaina: Oh goodness, I don’t know how to describe this! [laughs] When I was in high school I had a group of girls that I always hung out with and we did everything together. We would go to the mall and the next weekend we’d be at the lake. We’re girly, but we like to be outdoors at the same time. We’re sassy. If you’re from Georgia and you’re a girl you’re called a Georgia Peach.
