Lauren Alaina will compete on Season 28 of Dancing with the Stars and I've never wanted to watch and vote for any reality show as much as this.

"Mirror, Mirror on the ball," the PUNderful country star started in her announce... "Surprise!!!"

We loved seeing everyone rally behind her in the IG comments. Lindsay Ell, Cassadee Pope, Brittany Aldean, Abby Anderson, Tenille Townes, and so many more of her country music sisters have Alaina's back (and vote)!

We especially love the support of her boyfriend, comedian John Crist, who better be front row wearing a shirt with Alaina's face on it, or we might help her look for her "Next Boyfriend"—ooohhh! Just kidding, Crist. Kinda. He commented, "You're so beautiful babe! (also can you never wink like that around me thanks)." We'll see if it's in our budget to send you a shirt with that wink you love so much from Alaina's DWTS announcement ;)
