Lauren Alaina Has Full-Circle Moment With Fan on That Girl Was Me Tour
DANCING WITH THE STARS - ABC hosted a "Dancing with the Stars" 2019 Top 6 Finalist Party at 189 by Dominique Ansel at The Grove in Los Angeles. Executives, producers, "DWTS" judges, press and the remaining six couples came together to celebrate the amazing season thus far, in eager anticipation of the finale and coveted Mirrorball trophy.

Lauren Alaina’s That Girl Was Me Tour took on a whole new meaning at a recent show when the singer saw herself in a young fan. The “Getting Good” singer posted a photo of a young girl hugging her and visibly sobbing as she met her in a meet and greet. As noted in the caption, Alaina admits that she did the exact same thing when she first met Carrie Underwood on the set of American Idol. This got Lauren thinking about the kind of impact she is making on young fans with her music.

I got so excited when I saw Carrie in the room that I started sobbing,” Lauren writes. “After I said this to this little girl, I had this crazy moment. I thought, ‘Does my music have the same impact on her that Carrie’s music has on me?!’ I can only hope that my music means as much to little girls (and people of all ages) as Carrie’s music means to me.”

I told this little girl with tears streaming down her face that I did the exact same thing when I met @carrieunderwood when I was on American Idol. I got so excited when I saw Carrie in the room that I started sobbing. After I said this to this little girl, I had this crazy moment. I thought, “Does my music have the same impact on her that Carrie’s music has on me?!” I can only hope that my music means as much to little girls (and people of all ages) as Carrie’s music means to me. I am overwhelmed with joy and happiness from my first ever headlining tour. I can’t believe we sold it out. I can’t believe I got to meet so many amazing people that my music has reached. Thank you @verabradley for sponsoring my tour and making moments like this happen in meet and greets in different cities along the way. I can’t believe that the little girl from Rossville, Georgia with stars in her eyes, a dream in her heart and music in her soul always believed this would happen. I’m so thankful for the younger me. “A little girl with a dream, and THAT GIRL WAS ME (tour) 💕😭
