There is no teen scene celebrity gossip that dominated the country music tabloids debate quite like the question of whether or not American Idol winner Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina date. Are the famous celebrity teens actually an item or was their little reality TV crush simply something the producers of the hit television show competition cooked up to help both young talents boost their ratings? Whatever the case, here is the answer to the burning questions Scotty and Lauren’s fans want to know. Where did the two teen scene celebrities spend the holidays? We’ve got the truth right here that should help clear up some false rumor mills reports floating around on the web in so many article comments sections on fansite forums left by people who would love nothing more than to see these two cute kids romantically get together.
Since rocketing to the top two spots on American Idol for their country music performances, rumor mills reports have been swirling about singers Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina dating … and even marrying. McCreery joked that he would marry competitor and runner-up Alaina in 2022, and Alaina in a radio interview prodded him further, asking, “Did you tell someone we were getting married in 11 years?” McCreery offered a quiet affirmative, says website Touch of Country, but offered nothing further.
But that was August and this is now. Might the two celebrity singers offer fans a true love story this holiday amid a series of disastrous celebrity break-ups? While country fans sure would be happy to see the star celeb duo hook up, so far there hasn’t been anything more “together” about them than touring Nashville as newly minted country stars and otherwise releasing songs and albums around the same time.
In the months that followed, he wised up and did nothing but deny to the press the two were dating…
Taste of Country now reports:
Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina are a match made in music heaven. Not only did they trek through ‘American Idol’ together and go on to become winner and runner-up, but they’ve maintained a similar path when releasing their first singles, and soon, their debut albums. Of anyone, McCreery would likely be the least surprised if the pair ended up together — and married — despite how much he denies being in a relationship with Alaina.
But did the two spend the 2011 Christmas and New Years holidays on the sly together? Not exactly. Once again, the pair seems merely to be walking a similar path in life, not sharing a life together. McCreery took off for the Dominican Republic to help deliver shoe boxes full of gifts for children there as a part of Operation Christmas Child, according to the Charlotte Observer. Then he returns to work in January, starting another tour.
Alaina, likewise, has been doing green celebrity charity work, though closer to home. Alaina returned to her hometown for Christmas and was visiting sick kids in the hospital, spreading a little holiday cheer. News 9 in Chattanooga, TN, reported:
It’s never a positive experience when a child has to be hospitalized, particularly during the Christmas holidays, but patients at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger were in a for a real treat when they received a visit from “American Idol” runner-up, Lauren Alaina, Thursday.
She also played a hometown concert earlier in the month to benefit charities Christmas for Kids and the Forgotten Children’s Fund, according to Country Music Fever. And the humanitarian country star didn’t stop there. She’ll be appearing this New Year’s Eve for a Fox Special, according to The Dead Bolt.
Former American Idol finalist Lauren Alaina is celebrating the end of her biggest year yet with a performance on Fox’s American Country New Year’s Eve Live special in Las Vegas. The New Year’s Eve bash airs live on Friday, December 31 from 11:00pm-12:30am EST (CT/MT/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.
But is there any hope the two newly minted green celebrities might get together in the future? Sadly, it seems not. Scotty McCreery had this to say:
“We’re good friends, and that’s it. The ‘McLaina’ thing: It never happened. I know those fans, and they can talk, but there never was anything to it.”
But there’s no harm in hoping, right? That’s what the Christmas and New Year’s holidays are all about.
