Lauren Alaina to be featured tonight on ABC

“American Idol” winner Scotty McCreery and runner-up Lauren Alaina are among a cast of country music superstars who will sing tonight on the television special “CMA Country Christmas.” The show airs from 9 to 11 p.m. on ABC (Comcast channel 10).

Lauren will perform “My Grown-Up Christmas List,” a ballad written by David Foster with lyrics by Linda Jenner. The song was originally recorded by Natalie Cole, but Amy Grant is the singer credited with making it famous in 1992. Kelly Clarkson’s cover of it in 2003 renewed interest in the holiday song.

“It’s a song I really love, so I was really happy when it was suggested to me,” Lauren said in a recent phone interview.

The Christmas special will be hosted by Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles. Also performing will be Amy Grant, Faith Hill, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Kellie Pickler, Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley and Vince Gill singing a duet with Miss Piggy.

I think her 15 minutes are up. She needs to seriously consider enrolling in Community College and prepare herself for a future.

Lauren's already extremely successful at 17. That's why the haters come out like the person above. Lauren has a bright, bright future and is super talented. I worry more about the futures of those who would bash a 17 year old girl.
