Lauren Alaina Still ‘Doin’ Fine’ on ‘Fox & Friends,’ Despite Being Sick [Watch]
Lauren Alaina doesn't let being sick stop her from performing for fans. The "Doin' Fine" singer visited Fox & Friends as part of their All-American Summer Concert Series on July 7, and she sang her new single, despite being under the weather.
Alaina co-wrote the personal "Doin' Fine" with Emily Shackleton and busbee. She enlisted some fans in the front row to help her out on the chorus, and following the performance she told the hosts she wasn't going to bail on those who stood out in the rain for her.
“I’m not feeling great today, but I wanted to be here, obviously, with you guys, and if [the crowd] is gonna stand in the rain, I’m going to sing for you,” she explained.

"Doin' Fine" has Alaina singing about struggles in her own personal life, while realizing that everyone goes through similar trials. On the chorus she sings: "I’m doin’ fine enough to know that everyone’s a little broken / Fine enough to learn that hearts are best when they’re wide open / I still got fear inside of me, I’m not okay but I’m gonna be alright / For the first time, in a long time, I’m doin’ fine / I’m doin’ fine"
"'Doin' Fine' is a really special song because it’s uplifting, but really honest at the same time,” Alaina says. "If you don’t know me and you don’t know that that’s actually what I went through, you would almost think, ‘Oh my gosh, she really tried to write a country song,’ but the truth is, I really live a country song!"
Alaina saw her first No. 1 single earlier this year with the title track for hew new album — another song she wrote — "Road Less Traveled."
