I grew up in South Haven, Michigan.  Gotta love the lakeshore! Still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily.  Moved to Grand Rapids to go to Calvin College. Fell in love with GR and have been here since! (Go Beer City, USA!)   Big fan of crime TV, the '90s (scrunchies! Saved By the Bell!), my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really really love it, OK?), reading,  people watching, drinking on patios, playing the most inappropriate cards in Cards Against Humanity, and my dear, dear family.

Will ‘American Idol’ Stars Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina Record a Duet Together?

They've performed together before, they're both young country artists, and they just finished an 'American Idol' run that ended with him in first place and her in second, so it's only natural to ask: Have Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina talked about recording a duet now that they're labelmates?

"Yeah, we have," says McCreery, although Alaina adds,"We need to establish ourselves as artists first ... hopefully down the road, if we're still around, we'll put something together."
