Nashville, TN April 8, 2022… This week Lauren Mascitti makes good on a promise she made to fans with the release of “If I Can Lose You.” Since she debuted the self-penned, original song on American Idol a couple of years ago, fans have continued to ask for a recording, telling Mascitti how much the song means to them.
“My American Idol audition was only a few days after we wrote this song,” Lauren recalls, “I felt so strongly that I should go ahead and sing it for my audition because the vibe is so me. The risk paid off! It got me my golden ticket to Hollywood!” Little did Lauren know that one year later her decision would lead to an invitation to sing this same song on the renowned Grand Ole Opry stage. Mascitti has spent the last two years as a Covid nurse fighting on the frontlines in Nashville, delaying the release of “If I Can Lose You.” She explains, “Covid hit right when I was on my season of American Idol and I wasn’t able to get all my musicians into the studio for a while to record because of safety precautions.”
Mascitti is excited to reward her fan’s patience, saying the song has turned out better than she could have hoped. An accompanying video will be released soon.
“If I Can Lose You” is available now on all streaming platforms.
