Sometimes going home is all it takes to find what’s next. Turning the key on a new chapter, Grand Ole Opry member and Big Loud Records’ powerhouse, Lauren Alaina, is unlocking a new era, releasing her debut EP with the label, on June 9. The six-song set fittingly titled Unlocked, reintroduces the multi-faceted star, stripping back every layer and allowing fans to know her more than ever before.

Standing firmly in who she’s always been – an all-grown-up girl from small town Rossville, Georgia, devoted to country music and inspired to make it her own – Unlocked delivers a set of new music anchored in truth, digging deeper and stretching her further, both musically and personally, than past works.

“It’s been 13 years since we first met, and until a couple of years ago, I don’t know that I ever slowed down for more than a day or two at a time,” Alaina reflects. “I spent more time with the people that matter most to me – my family, my fiancé, my friends – during that period than I had in years. This music comes from my heart and my hometown. I am who I am because of where and who I come from, and I’m more me today than I’ve ever been. I can’t wait to unlock this next chapter with you.” 

Announced first on her socials, Alaina laid the foundation for the new EP with a minute and four-second teaser, narrating over b-roll footage of her time in the studio creating the project with musical mastermind / diamond-certified producer, Joey Moi:

Unpacking different aspects of who she is – a heart-bearing lyricist, sass-riddled girls’ girl, last call closer, deep-feeling empath, and 28-year-old, confident, complicated, ever-evolving woman – Alaina strips back every layer, inviting fans to see her as they never have. Created by an assembly of Nashville talents, the six-track tacks on cuts by artists Cole Swindell, Ella Langley, and Luke Bryan, mainstay hit makers Josh Osborne, Parker Welling, and Hunter Phelps, and upstart newcomers Emily Landis, Rocky Block, John Byron, and Lydia Vaughan among others. It also features a cheeky duet with red-hot collaborator and friend, Lainey Wilson.
