I'm only on the second track on her album after getting it tonight, but I have to say that I quite enjoy this song. I don't know about what else this album holds in hit potential (yet), but this song certainly seems to have a heavy dose of it. I think radio, given a nudge in the right direction, could latch onto this.
I do have to say though that her voice on this song is a bit shouty. She's got a beautiful set of pipes, but she sort of misses on this song in that department with what I'd call poor technique.
This is plenty good though, and I do enjoy it. I will definitely crank it up when radio spins it on my airwaves.

This is a great song! Worlds better than LMMD! I hope radio will give this a chance. I don't want to see Lauren end up like Sunny Sweeny has. Sunny has so much promise but can't crack the top half of the chart cause, well, she's a woman and radio isn't too fond of women lately. Lets hope Lauren changes that!
^ I have hope for this and I have hope for Sunny's DMS, which I feel is the strongest radio single on her album.
Its about time for women to stake their claim at country back
I agree. It would make country music more interesting. Looking at this year's #1 hits, there have been three solo female #1s and two #1s as duets. They are: 1. Turn On The Radio-Reba McEntire 2. Don't You Wanna Stay-Kelly Clarkson and Jason Aldean 3. A Little Bit Stronger-Sara Evans 4. Heart Like Mine-Miranda Lambert 5. Remind Me-Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley Hopefully, 2012 will remedy the situation.
Love this album so much! "The Locket" and "Eighteen Inches" are phenomenal songs and are the two standouts for me. This song is also the perfect choice for the second single. It's easily the best uptempo on the album, imo, and is catchy and fun. I really hope this can get her a big hit
#52 debut on Billboard this week. They played Georgia Peaches on my local radio station as part of their future file - the listeners who called in voted to put it in rotation. The song sounded great on the radio.

I really love this song. I hope it makes it to the top 10. I'm glad Mercury gave her an uptempo for her 2nd single. I guess they learned their lesson after the reaction to TTWG getting released for Scotty, which was such a big miscalculation! And for the rest of the album, I can see "Tupelo" hitting #1 in the future if its released. Its got a cool groove to it that reminds me of early Faith Hill for some reason. Its by far the best radio track in my opinion.
This song, along with Tupelo, Eighteen Inches, and Dirt Road Prayer are all must-releases, IMO. I can really see DRP performing like THTBM did for Miranda Lambert. It was a risky choice, a very heavy ballad, and people took it and clearly ran with it.

Yes! "Dirt Road Prayer" is another one that screams radio! I'm not a big fan of "18 Inches" but hey thats just me. But "GP" "T" and "DRP" I think should all go top 10, as long as radio doesnt hold 2 things over Laurens head...1) she's from Idol and 2) She's, well a she! Radio is not breaking new females at all this year, so unfair! Look at how they've treated Picklers "comeback", very sad! I just want to carbon copy the late 90s radio aptmosphere again!
I just listened to this album again (for, probably the 5th time)... just after listening to Miranda's new album (for the 2nd time). This is, without a doubt, head & shoulders above Miranda's new release.
Heard this on the radio for the first time this morning! I was so excited. It's got a great radio sound to it; very fun to bounce around to in the car, and it's a great sing-along. It's something she needed to follow up to the flopping Like My Mother Does.
How is this song doing on the charts? Hopefully the American Country Awards will help her with some promotion in the next week or two. Mercury Nashville needs to get their act in gear and start pushin' her. These tree-lightings are going to be doing much for her if those are their plans for the winter for her. Get her to some Jingle Balls, a New Years Eve appearance somewhere, anything. They have the power & she has the public appeal to get some televised appearances, so I'm hoping that they'll start promoting her a little more so they can get the song to start climbing.
Censor noted this in the "Wildflower" thread of the General Artists sub-forum, but I thought I'd post it here as well.
The cat is out of the bag as to which major country artist Lauren Alaina will be hitting the road with in 2012. Starting in January, Alaina will link up with Jason Aldean on the next leg of his My Kinda Party Tour.
Back in October, the former ‘American Idol’ beauty revealed to Taste of Country that she was beyond excited to have the opportunity to spend some time on the road with a then unnamed superstar. At the time, Alaina said she was looking forward to the big announcement and even more thrilled about the chance to connect with the masses that will be drawn out for the major touring event.
“I’m just trying to get my name out there a little bit more and be able to perform as much as I can,” she explained.
On Friday morning (Dec. 2), Aldean took to his Twitter page to announce the news that will now have fans eagerly awaiting the new year: “hey yall, give a welcome to lauren_Alaina,” Aldean tweeted. “shes joinin @lukebryanonline and me on the My Kinda Party tour in jan.”
Aldean’s tour is set to launch on Jan. 20 in Greensville, S.C.
Exciting news for Lauren to be opening for Jason Aldean. I suspect his fans will eat up Lauren name-checking Aldean in Georgia Peaches. Song should go over very well on tour. Would love for GP to reach top 20.
