There is just something about Lauren Alaina that makes her stand out from the rest. It’s something about her heart, and her voice and the way she always does everything with her fans in mind.
Heck, just ask one of those fans.
“I’ve been a fan of Lauren since the day of her ‘American Idol’ audition in 2011,” devoted fan Shelby Worthington recently told Rare Country. “I was a senior in high school. Now I’m 24 with a college degree. We were close in age, and I immediately connected with her. Her voice was incredible and her personality was infectious. I’ve supported her journey ever since, and [have] been to more shows than I can even count! I would say somewhere between 60 and 70 now. Her career has had a lot of ups and downs, but her fans have had her back through it all. I couldn’t be happier to see all this success finally coming her way. She deserves it and more!”
During a show on September 20 in Birmingham, Alabama, Shelby and a group of her friends decided to try to get Lauren’s attention by dressing up as guys — complete with fake mustaches — and seeing if Lauren would bring them up on stage to sing her song “Next Boyfriend” with her.
And of course she did! A video shows her noticing the fans and saying, “You guys are weirdos and I like it.”
“Lauren knows who we are, so we thought we could at least make her laugh regardless of whether she pulled us up there or not, but we were hopeful she’d give us a chance,” said Shelby. “We didn’t have the hats or mustaches on until we knew the song ‘Next Boyfriend’ was coming, then we put the hats and mustaches on and held up signs to get her attention. The signs said, ‘We mustache you a question’ and ‘Can we be your next boyfriends?’ (Of course, since she loves puns!) She saw the signs and immediately started laughing and told us we could come up!”
