Pretty Young Thing

Lucy Hale is starting 2014 off with a bang.

This Pretty Little Liars star worked on her debut country album with Sugarland’s Kristian Bush just outside of Decatur. We love Lucy!

Lucy Hale is starting 2014 off with a bang. Her hit TV show Pretty Little Liars just returned for its winter season run, and fans are getting an inside look at her lifelong dream of making country music. Her debut single “You Sound Good to Me” hit radio stations last month, and it seems her nearly 3.4 million Twitter followers are anxious for more. Hint: That full-length album may be yours before the summer premiere of PLL! Here, the Tennessee native sounds off on what’s next for her character, Aria; crazy rumors; and going country. @lucyhale

We’re loving your debut single. Any hopes for a duet on this album?
I recently met Lady Antebellum, and I love their music. I think it’d be cool to do something with them. There is a duet on the album, but I can’t release who it is yet. It’s finished though and sounds great.

On PLL your character’s style is very edgy. Tell us about your personal style.
I love Aria’s style; it definitely has its own thing going on and helps me break loose in my own life. I wanted my video and my album artwork to have a Free People feel. I like to go bohemian.

Give us a peek at what fans are going to see on this season of the show.
Where we left off is that Ezra is seemingly part of the A-team, and a lot of people were upset about that. Things get really intense and dramatic. My character kind of loses it a bit and goes crazy. I lost my voice during filming if that says anything. It was fun to show a darker side.

Gossip is a large part of PLL. What’s the craziest rumor you’ve heard about yourself in real life?
I recently heard that I was pregnant, and that’s not true. There are always these rumors that the girls [Ashley Benson, Troian Bellisario, Shay Mitchell] and I don’t get along, and that’s ridiculous because we do. We’re very supportive of each other.
