Alaina is a very talented young lady, with many awards and TV shows to back it up. She has a wonderful voice, and it is always a pleasure to listen to her sing, whether it is country or oldies she delivers them very well. She presence herself on stage like a pro, and is always dressed like a true star.
At just four years old she made her very first stage appearance with a live band at the Outback Music Shed in Danville Al. Calvin Terry was the bass player, (brother of the famous fiddle player Gordan Terry). She sang, Daddy’s Girl to over 150 people, and when she stepped down Calvin said, WOW! I have never seen anyone keep time so well. She was just four. Alaina has come a long way since then with many performances all over. On another occasion she was called on stage unexpectedly at the R.O.P.E. Summer Spectacular by former WSM 650 and Grand Ole Opry announcer, Keith Bilbrey. He called her on stage to recognize her as the youngest member of R.O.P.E., then out of the blue he asked her to sing something, and of coarse she did. Alaina sang Loretta’s “Your Looking At Country”, and received a standing ovation. This was a night when many of the great legions sang, such as Mark Chesnut, Stonewall Jackson, Charlie McCoy, and Jack Greene just to name a few. Alaina and Jack were the only two, to get a standing ovation that night. This turned out to be one of the best nights of her life.
This little lady has won about every kind of award there is, she was the second place winner of the Mark Narmore’s Young Songwriters Award, for the first song she wrote at age seven, “He Don’t Know”. She won a autographed guitar and a gold record, and presented by Mark himself. In 2010, she took home Vocalist of the Year, Songwriter of the Year, Video of the Year, and Dance of the Year from NACMAI.
