When it comes to her relationship with Trisha, Lauren says, “I don’t know how this has happened to me…but Trisha Yearwood is my friend. I’m serious. I cannot believe that. She’s my friend…and she’s got me saved in her phone as ‘Junior’ – because she calls me ‘Trisha Junior’.”

Lauren adds, “She’s been a great mentor.”
