We know Lucy Hale as the fashionably eccentric Aria from Pretty Little Liars, but this actress is getting ready for a new role.

Lucy is working on her own album, which is reportedly set to release later this year. Lucy grew up singing and says that acting is something that she fell into along the way. She’s decided to return to her passion for music and plans to give singing another shot!

As for the type of music Lucy is working on, the PLL star was born in Tennessee and so she loves country music!

In an interview with the Associated Press, Lucy said, “Country music to me is the best music in the world. It’s storytelling and it means something and it can make you feel any emotion in the world and it’s just where my heart is.”
