One Of Those Boys

Album: Wildflower (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This Anthony Smith, Marla Cannon and Ben Carver written song finds Lauren singing about the boy of her dreams. She told Taste of Country: "I really like this one because it describes this great guy. I am singing about a boy that in my eyes would be perfect. He has all of these flaws that make me love him. It says he's gotta love his mama, shake my daddy's hand and like going to church on Sunday morning. I can relate. I would say that's some pretty crucial stuff in a guy. It was the last song that I got for the whole album and I fell in love with it. I said, 'We have to do this one.'"
  • Speaking to Taste of Country about performing love songs despite her inexperience regarding matters of the heart, Lauren said she believes she's still able to sing about such subject matter. "Well, I've had crushes and stuff, so I don't really mind singing about it," the 17-year-old singer explained. "I like any song that can tell a story that people can relate to."
