Lauren Alaina will make her way, inch by inch, to her 18th birthday (Nov. 8th) when she embarks on an 18-city tour in support of her current single “Eighteen Inches.” Lauren is teaming 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. Lauren is trying to make a difference city-by-city, inch-by-inch.

Fans who cannot make it to one of these shows can still do their part and purchase the limited edition t-shirt from Lauren’s website

“Eighteen Inches,” co-written by Carrie Underwood, Kelley Lovelace and Ashley Gorley, has hit the Top 40 on the country singles chart and is steadily rising.
