Fresh off an ACM New Female Vocalist of the Year win, Alaina will perform private, acoustic performances for Diamond Resorts members
MAY 8, 2018 (LAS VEGAS, Nev.) – Diamond Resorts®, a global leader in the hospitality and vacation ownership industries, is excited to announce it has signed country music singer and songwriter Lauren Alaina as its newest Diamond Celebrity ambassador.
Alaina was the runner-up on American Idol, Season 10, and has released two studio albums: Wildflower in 2011, and Road Less Traveled in 2017. Her second album landed on several end-of-year “Best Of” lists, including Billboard and Rolling Stone. It also became the top-streamed female country album release of the year and includes her first No. 1 hit single, “Road Less Traveled.”
“Some of my best memories of my life have been made on vacations,” said Lauren. “I can’t wait to make many more with this partnership.”
Alaina was named this year’s ACM New Female Vocalist of the Year and performed at the April 15 award show in Las Vegas. She has also performed with some of country’s biggest superstars, including Alan Jackson, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan and Martina McBride, and is currently on tour with Jason Aldean.
“Lauren Alaina is one of the best new country music artists out there and regularly performs for crowds in the thousands,” said Mike Flaskey, Chief Executive Officer of Diamond Resorts. “Through this partnership, our Diamond Resorts members have the exclusive opportunity to meet her and enjoy a private, acoustic show with only about 100 of their fellow members. To say the Diamond Live concert series is intimate, is an understatement. It is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”
Diamond Resorts members will have several opportunities this year to meet the country music star through Events of a Lifetime®, Diamond’s experiential vacation program, which includes live concerts and performances. The 2018 Diamond Live schedule is expected to be packed with more than 100 shows, including performances by Alaina and fellow country music artists Lee Brice, Cole Swindell, Colt Ford, Lee Ann Womack and Jana Kramer, among others.
