I have big news

"I cannot believe I have the number one song in the country," Lauren said in a post-cry statement through her record label. "I have dreamed of this day my entire life. The five singles, the ups and downs, the tears, the smiles, and the six years of hard work have made this moment so much sweeter. I am so thankful to everyone who helped me get to this point. Regardless of my future, I get to live the rest of my life saying I have written a number one song. Life made."

"Road Less Traveled" was written by multi-genre songsmith Jesse Frasure and songwriter/popstar Meghan Trainor. Check out the album playlist here. See the video below.
