She co-wrote all the material throughout the 12-song collection including the title track single, which just broke Top 20 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. The song was co-written with pop’s Meghan Trainor and hit-maker Jesse Frassure.
All of the material was culled from music she created over the course of a three-and-a-half-year period.
“I’ve grown so much as a person, a songwriter and an artist in that time,” Alaina said in a release. “These songs are a true representation of who I am, where I’ve been and where I’m going. This album has pushed me to accept who I am and be 100% honest about it. Road Less Traveled is truly me. I can’t wait to share my stories, my music and myself with the world.”
California-based songwriter/producer busbee produced the album and co-wrote the collection’s openers “Doin’ Fine” and “My Kinda People.”
She starts the CMT Next Women of Country Love Unleashed Tour 2017 with headliner Martina McBride on Feb. 2 in St. Louis. Tickets are available now.
