Lauren Alaina celebrated her 18th birthday on November 8 and was surprised over the weekend with a special prom-themed birthday bash. Lauren missed her Junior Prom while on tour and the idea was to re-create the event for her. Under the impression she was going to dinner with a small group of family and friends, Lauren was taken to a location in her hometown of Rossville, GA where her family and friends – and a prom dress! –  were waiting.

Among the guests were several of the special needs teenagers Lauren, an ambassador for the Special Olympics Project Unify, spent time with during high school. Many of them were named honorary prom kings and queens during the party. Also in attendance was Jordan Trunfio, a high school student from Springfield, VA suffering from a brain tumor whom Lauren surprised at his Homecoming dance.

Lauren just wrapped her 18-City-Inch-By-Inch Tour. During the tour, she teamed up with local charities and the Special Olympics to donate a portion of each sale of her limited edition 18-City Inch-By-Inch Tour t-shirt. Her current single, “Eighteen Inches,” is at radio now.

Up next for a now 18-year-old Lauren is the 2012 American Country Awards where she is nominated for Artist of the Year: New Artist.  The ACA Awards will air live on FOX on Monday, December 10.
