Each Friday at 9:30am, KICK-FM will feature an artist on the rise during the Breakthrough Artist of the Week, brought to you by Glass One Quincy.

It's been a long road from Hollywood for Lauren Alaina, after finishing second on the 10th season of American Idol, but Lauren Alaina is a work horse, constantly writing and recording and performing, always working toward her goals. She released her self-titled EP late last year, and has been climbing the charts with the latest single, "Road Less Traveled" since July. For more about Lauren Alaina, visit her website. Her EP, Lauren Alaina, is available on both iTunes and Amazon.
