ACM New Female Vocalist of the Year, Lauren Alaina released her latest single, “Ladies in the ‘90s” to country radio today (Oct 5). The song is said to be the first single off her next studio album. It follows the songstress’ first number one song, “Road Less Traveled” and its successor “Doin Fine,” both off her sophomore album Road Less Traveled.
Co-written by Alaina, the nostalgic track celebrates female artists of the 90s across all genres of music, and the time where women artists ruled the country genre. The lyrics remind fans that the 90s were a decade where talented female musicians, like Shania Twain and the Dixie Chicks, did not have to struggle to be prominent on the radio and at award shows. Pop icon Britney Spears, girl group Destiny’s Child, and the iconic Spice Girls are also referenced on the track.
“I was raised on radio waves / where the ladies dominated / Sometimes I close my eyes and just replay it / I just want to feel like ladies in the 90’s / Turn the dial and find me some ‘Strawberry Wine’ / So I can sing all night long / Acting like I’m Britney”
The single seems to follow the name-dropping trend we’ve seen in country music, mentioning singers’ name and song titles, such as “Strawberry Wine” and “(Baby) One More Time.” Alaina delivers a girl power anthem with the same excitement as former tour-mate Walker Hayes’ “90s Country.”
Showing her enthusiasm for the new record just before its release, the singer-songwriter took to Twitter, “Tomorrow. Ladies in the ‘90s. This is my favorite single I’ve ever released. I hope you love it too. This is me “Feeling like I’m Britney” at @BrdgstoneArena.”
As Alaina’s opening role on Jason Aldean’s “High Noon Neon Tour” comes to a close, which included playing for a sold out crowd in New York City at Madison Square Garden back in August, Alaina gets ready to embark on another tour. The singer was recently announced as a supporting act on Cole Swindell’s “Ready to Drink… Another Tour”. The tour has not announced a NYC Area stop… yet.
“Ladies In The ’90s” is now available everywhere you buy or stream music.
