Lauren Alaina Dances on Prom Night, But Not at Her Own

Lauren Alaina missed junior prom this past Saturday night (4/14) because she was in Louisville, KY with Sugarland’s In Your Hands tour.

Alaina improvised by finding a partner from the audience to come onstage so she could officially have her prom dance.

After her set, she discovered the Lanesville High School Prom was being held just six blocks away from the concert venue. With the permission from the Lanesville High School Principal, she and fellow tour opener Canaan Smith made a surprise appearance at the Lanesville prom, dancing on the floor for about 20 minutes before heading back to the Sugarland show.

The 17-year old American Idol runner-up opens for Alan Jackson in Pensacola, FL (May 4) and Columbus, GA (May 5) before picking back up on Jason Aldean’s My Kinda Party tour May 10-19. She will continue with Sugarland when the tour heads to Los Angeles on May 22.
