Actress/singer Lucy Hale of ABC Family's Pretty Little Liars has signed to Hollywood Records. Congrats, Miss Hale!
A native of Memphis, Tennessee, Hale grew up listening to country music and it still resonates with her today. While she cites Shania Twain and Faith Hill as early influences, it was the Britney Spears "Baby One More Time" video that ignited a serious interest in pursuing music.
"I'm overjoyed and honored to become a member of the Hollywood Records family," said Hale in a statement. "I've admired the careers they've made and can't wait to see how my musical path is paved out. I'd just like to thank Ken Bunt and everyone involved for giving me the chance to show a whole different side of myself, which is a huge passion for music."
While Hale appreciates all musical genres, it's her country roots that speak to her heart and will mark the direction of her music. Recording is set to begin later this year with a single and album due in 2013 on Lyric Street/Hollywood Records.
Are you looking forward to Lucy Hale's country-rooted album?
