After coming in second to Scotty McCreery on the last season of ‘American Idol’, Lauren Alaina’s life has completely changed and she has gone from having a normal teenage life to being a huge country superstar who is touring with legends like Jason Aldean.
Never one to forget her roots, Alaina signed on to do a Great American Country channel show called ‘Day Jobs’ where they take big named country stars back to their old jobs they had before making it big.
Before ‘American Idol’ put Alaina on the map, she worked at Cici’s Pizza in Fort Oglethorpe. When Lauren returned to the pizza restaurant to film the show dozens of her fans showed up to welcome her home. Her fans had nothing but good things to say about Lauren as they gushed about their Idol, saying;
“She’s pretty. She’s nice. She’s a very good singer, very good singer. We’re really lucky to have a winner from our area this close, you know what I mean. It’s like we all feel like we kind of know here even if we don’t.”
VP of Marketing for GAC, Scott Durand said that Alaina’s “popularity” is soaring right now, making her perfect for the show. He said;
“Lauren’s popularity is soaring right now with, you know, the single that she has out and of course her popularity with American Idol.”
Austin Hamilton, who worked with Lauren called her “One of the nicest” people he has ever worked with. He said;
“She was one of the nicest employees I ever worked with. She’d do anything for anybody. She’s very caring.”
A brand new season of ‘Day Jobs’ will start in April on the Great American Country Channel, but at this time there is no word on when Lauren’s episode will air.
