Who’s having the best week ever in country music?

We think it’s Lauren Alaina.

The country star celebrates her birthday today, and took some time earlier this week to soak up all the magic happening in her life right now.


So many good things are going on for her personally and professionally, and Lauren wanted to share her gratitude with her fans after celebrating her birthday in patriotic style with her best friends and family.

She posted an adorable photo on Nov. 7 from her party with a note that read:

“Last night my family and friends came over for a birthday party. We had the party on a Monday night because I have been touring in Canada and couldn’t do a weekend. We couldn’t have the party on my actual birthday because this year I’m sharing my bday with the CMA Awards. I will take it!”

Last night my family and friends came over for a birthday party. We had the party on a Monday night because I have been touring in Canada and couldn't do a weekend. We couldn't have the party on my actual birthday because this year I'm sharing my bday with the @cma Awards. I will take it! 😉 My family drove in from home on a MONDAY. My friends made time for me during one of the busiest weeks of the year for Nashville. It was such a good reminder for me that life is about the people you love. I've been so nervous about the awards because I have my first nomination this year. I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to win. After last night, though, I have already won. Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate with me. Fingers crossed for tomorrow. Either way. CAKE. ❤️🎂🎈🇺🇸

The night after the party, Lauren attended the BMI Country Awards in Nashville, where she received the first medallion of her career for her hit “Road Less Traveled.”

Tonight, she’s up for her first CMA for New Artist of the Year.

But we agree with her—she’s already a winner in our eyes, too.

Best of luck to all the nominees tonight and happy birthday, Lauren!
