An updated recording of 'Don't Waste the Pretty' is the new single from former 'American Idol' contestant Allison Iraheta. The song originally appeared on Allison's 2009 album 'Just Like You,' but for this new version, young Australian guitar sensation Orianthi was invited into the studio to add her fretboard wizardry. Both Iraheta and Orianthi will be supporting Allison's 'Idol' alumni Adam Lambert on his nationwide Glam Nation tour this summer.
Orianthi's soloing adds dramatic tension to the country-tinged, mid-tempo pop song as Iraheta advises a friend not to take verbal abuse from her partner: "Don't waste the pretty on him / Don't waste the pretty on pain / When it gets too much to take / Don't give it away."
