Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale has signed a record deal with Hollywood Records. The actress-turned-singer expects an album- inspired by her Memphis, Tennessee roots- to drop in 2013.
Lucy is following in the footsteps of fellow Hollywood Record stars, Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez, pursuing both acting and singing simultaneously. However, Lucy recently tweeted about her music saying, “Its going to be diff from anything you’ve ever heard from the label, and not what you’d expect from me.”
Although Lucy credits Britney Spears’ “Baby One More Time” for igniting her passion for music, she also credits Shania Twain and Faith Hill as other influences. With Lucy being a native of Tennessee, she will lend her musical styling towards her country roots.
Lucy has stared in many hit TV shows, such as How I Met Your Mother, The O.C., Privileged, and has been featured in films such as The Sisterhood of Traveling Pants, and A Cinderella Story: Once Upon A Song.
Hale says “I’m overjoyed and honored to become a member of the Hollywood Records family.”
