Lucy Hale Talks Debut Album: ‘People Are Either Going To Love It Or Hate It’

Lucy Hale - CountryMusicIsLove

Actress Lucy Hale, who is known for her role on ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars,” has been hard at work on her debut Country album. After spending time in Nashville writing with songwriters and artists such as Sugarland’s Kristian Bush, the Tennessee native is ready for fans to hear what she has to offer.

“My album is something I’m really, really, really proud of. I’ve intentionally been quiet about it because I want the music to speak for itself. People are either going to love it or hate it,” Hale tells Seventeen Magazine. “But I think that once they hear it, they’ll be like, ‘Okay, she loves this and is serious about it.’ This is my pride and joy — it’s my baby! I worked my butt off on it.”

The 23-year-old said she even had to convince Bush that she wanted to add singing to her resume. “At the very beginning when I met him, he was sort of like, ‘Are you sure you want to do this? They’re going to give you a hard time because you were on a TV show.’ I was like, ‘No, this is what I wanna do.’ Then he heard me sing and he heard my music and was, on Team Lucy from then on out! He became a friend and a mentor.”

And for people wondering what she sounds like? Hale compares herself to Miranda Lambert. “We’ve got the sassy stuff down,” she explained. “We’ve got some breakup stuff, but we’ve got some beautiful love songs, too. . . It’s definitely fun for me because I know who I’m singing about, and that’s where the Taylor Swift in me comes out, because I know who I’m singing about, and they’ll know who I’m singing about. But it’s got a little bit of everything.”

An album title and release date have yet to be set for Hale’s album.

Hale is featured on the cover of the June/July issue of Seventeen Magazine’s, which hits newsstands May 21.
