Dirt Road Prayer

Album: Wildflower (2011)
  • 2011 American Idol runner-up Lauren Alaina's debut album closes with this simple ballad: "This song is basically a young girl's prayer to God, and I think it has a great message," said Lauren to Taste of Country: "She's praying for her family members and for God to tell her where to take her life. The chorus talks about how she has a place where she always goes to pray when she is in trouble or is confused. It talks about how much of her life has changed, but that it's good to know her place will always be there, and that is always something that she will have. I really relate to this song a lot because my own life has completely changed and sometimes I just need to pray; praying makes me feel better."
