Riverbend ends with Lauren Alaina

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- Riverbend ended Saturday night with Lauren Alaina performing on the Coca-Cola stage.

"I've dreamed of being on this stage since I was a little girl and now the day is finally here and everybody keeps asking me if I'm excited or how I feel," said Lauren Alaina.

Being back to perform where she grew up, in front of all her friends and fans, made her more nervous than usual.

"I've just got this crazy feeling in my belly and I'm like nervous," said Lauren before she took the stage.

Growing up Lauren always came with her friends to Riverbend to watch the famous bands perform, never knowing that her dream to perform on the big stage would come true.

"Now I get to be one of those people on the stage, on the closing night, right before the fireworks in my hometown. Like I can't think of anything that could be more special," said Lauren.

Lauren encourages everyone to follow their dreams, just as she did and they can be anything they want.

"For the people in this town, you can do whatever you want," said Lauren, "I came from this town, we're all the same. You just got to work hard and go for your dreams."

She realizes her hometown has helped make her into the big star she is today.

"I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for my hometown," said Lauren, "I know how much they voted for me, stood behind me through the whole experience and I'm just really excited to go up there and sing for them."

Lauren greatly appreciates all of her fans and everyone who has supported her through this whole experience.
