Congrats Lauren Alaina! While I don't personally listen to much country music and probably won't buy her album, it's great to see a local artist wreap great success and live out their dreams! And while some can argue that American Idol gives an easy pass to exposure for their annual finalists as opposed to other artists who work their butts off spending their own money touring before they ever land a deal or have any success, the fact is that Lauren Alaina is already more successful than almost all other Idol finalists ever (with the exception of a few), and she has EARNED this success that almost 1 million other people have tried to attain by trying out for Idol the past 10 years.
