American Country Awards: Lauren Alaina tearfully accepts Best New Artist
Alaina accepted the award tearfully. "Oh my god, I can't breathe, um, first of all, oh God, I want to thank God," she began. She went on to thank her mother, her fans, her record label, and of course "American Idol."
Alaina, whose song "Georgia Peaches" is a country radio hit, recently celebrated her 18th birthday.
