On Jan. 4, country songstress Lauren Alaina shared a pic of herself that probably made thousands of her followers jealous. With her hair stylishly slicked back and her shirt teasingly showing off all that her mama gave her, Lauren looked absolutely and utterly beautiful.

But just a few short hours later, Lauren reminded us why she is so darn cool.

She then went on to share a childhood pic of herself. Looking shy and even somewhat homely, Lauren reminded all of her Twitter followers that she has come a long, long way. “This is proof that we all have hope,” she wrote with the Throwback Thursday pic.

Embracing your own individuality runs through Lauren’s new album “Road Less Traveled,” which is set for release on Jan. 27.

“I am so excited to get this album out,” shared Lauren in a recent press release. “I wrote for it for three and a half years. I’ve grown so much as a person, a songwriter and an artist in that time. These songs are a true representation of who I am, where I’ve been and where I’m going. This album has pushed me to accept who I am and be 100 percent honest about it. ‘Road Less Traveled’ is truly ME. I can’t wait to share my stories, my music and myself with the world.”
