Lauren Alaina has teamed up with Trisha Yearwood to release a duet version of her latest single, “Getting Good.”
The rework doesn’t stray too far from the original, with Yearwood adding a solo verse to the second half of the song. The singers later meet on the chorus to harmonize: “I’m thinking, once I learn to grow right where I’m planted / Maybe that’s when life starts getting good.”
Fans got a five-second taste of the new version of “Getting Good” earlier in April when the American Idol alum appeared on Yearwood’s cooking show, Trisha’s Southern Kitchen. During the episode, Yearwood spontaneously belted out the chorus of “Getting Good,” which left Alaina awestruck.
“I’m so thankful that I get to share such an important message with one of the most important and impactful voices in my life,” Alaina said in a press statement. “Trisha is a beautiful person inside and out. I’m honored she said yes to this song and to me. I’m learning to grow right where I’m planted, and I’m realizing, life’s already good.”
Yearwood added, “I just love the sentiment of this song. We all have these dreams. What you learn, is it’s not the goals that you reach that are the things you’re really going to remember, it’s the journey all along the way.”
Earlier this year, Alaina released her Getting Good EP, which besides the title track also included “The Other Side,” a stirring tribute to her late stepfather. Last year, Yearwood also released her 14th studio album, Every Girl, which featured the lead single, “Every Girl in this Town.”
