Make no doubt about it, Lauren Alaina is one busy girl.  So how did she manage to graduate?  “I have accomplished so much in the past two years that have meant so much to me, but graduating, it’s at the top of the list! It was an accomplishment that I wasn’t sure I was going to make, and when you work so hard to make some things happen…right ‘til the last day, I was worried that I wasn’t going to get everything finished and turned in. And I did, and it was like, ‘[heavy sigh] I did it!’ ‘Cause there were days where I was like, ‘I’ll just get my GED. It’s fine.’ I’d get so frustrated. It’s not easy when you’re 16, 17, 18 years old, and you’re on the road touring with Jason Aldean, Sugarland and Luke Bryan. And then when everyone else would finish up the shows and do whatever they wanted to do, I was on the bus doing homework. That’s not fun. When it was that final day and I walked across that stage, it was the best feeling in the world.”
