Watch Lauren Alaina Honor Late Step-Dad on “Dancing With the Stars”

Lauren Alaina partnered with Gleb Savchenko to perform a contemporary dance to her new song, “The Other Side,” on Dancing With the Stars on Oct. 21.

Lauren co-penned the new tune with Jon Nite and Zach Kale in honor of her step-dad, Sam Ramker, who passed away on Oct. 21, 2018, after battling cancer.

“[Sam] was always my champion,” said Lauren via Instagram. “He was always my number one fan. Now he’s my guardian angel. I can’t believe my stepdad has been gone a year today. This is going to be an extremely hard day for my family, but I know Sam is with us and is so proud of us all. I am dancing for you tonight Sammy. I’m giving mom all the biggest hugs she deserves. We miss you. See you on The Other Side.”

Lauren and Gleb earned 26 out of 30 points, the couple’s highest score thus far in the competition.

Over the past 27 seasons of DWTS, a number of country artists haves taken their talents to the dance floor, including Sara Evans, Billy Ray Cyrus, Chuck Wicks, Kellie Pickler, Jana Kramer and more.
