Gimme Five: Lucy Hale’s Biggest Album Influences

Last month, “Pretty Little Liars” star Lucy Hale launched her music career in grand fashion with the debut single “You Sound Good To Me,” a country music offering that marked her first Hot 100 entry. In a little over a month, the official video for “You Sound Good To Me” has earned 2.5 million views on YouTube, setting Hale up for a debut album on Hollywood Records, due out this spring.

“I don’t think I’ll ever quit acting, but in my heart, I feel like I’m a musician,” Hale told Billboard last month. The singer/actress says that her first full-length will feature a mix of country and pop, and although fans will have to wait a few months to hear the full collection, the 24-year-old has listed five artists that made a huge impact on her growing up, and will surely be heard as influences on her debut LP.

Eight Ways Lucy Hale Is Ready for Country Music

This is a big week for actress-turned-country-singer Lucy Hale. Her debut single “You Sound Good to Me” was officially added to the playlists at several country radio stations. And already, 33 stations are playing her song in her first week on the radio.

But even though the star of TV’s Pretty Little Liars is brand new to this country music thing, it sounds like she’s already ready for what lies ahead. She knows how to kill time on a bus, how to keep her voice strong and how to react properly when she hears her song on the radio.

In a recent interview with industry publication Country Aircheck, Hale revealed some details about her life that make me think she’s fully prepared for this new chapter in her life.

1. She knows how to kill time on airplanes. “SkyMall is definitely my inflight entertainment. I’ve never actually followed through with purchasing anything, but once I saw a mermaid tail, and I wanted it. Because why not?”

2. She knows how to kill time on a tour bus. “I’m only on level 29 on Candy Crush! Can you believe it? I’ve been playing for a month and can’t get past that level. I need more sprinkle donuts.”

Lucy Hale Spills the Advice She Got From Jana Kramer

Country newcomer Lucy Hale first found success on television, starring in ABC Family’s ‘Pretty Little Liars.’ So, when another actress-turned-songstress Jana Kramer — formerly of ‘One Tree Hill’ — gave her some advice, Hale made sure to listen up.
Hale, who was born and bred on country, says that music is her first love. But sometimes, it can be tricky to go from one successful career (which in her case, is acting) straight into another sector of entertainment.
Kramer would know the difficulties — after all, she left ‘One Tree Hill’ to hone in on her music career. She’s now working on upcoming new album, but it hasn’t been an easy trek to build her country music platform from the ground up.
Needless to say, Hale would be wise to heed her advice.
“She did give me some great advice. She’s like, ‘They’re going to put you through the ringer. It’s going to be especially hard for you; it’s going to be a little different considering what you’re known for,’” Hale dishes.
The ‘You Sound Good to Me’ hitmaker notes that the songstress was very supportive and kind, which is always heartening to hear.
Perhaps while they’re gabbing about career advice, the two gals can also commiserate on how frustrating love can be. Kramer’s engagement to Brantley Gilbert ended in August, and Hale very astutely confirms, “I’m single.”

Lucy Hale, Kellie Pickler & More Attend Country Cares for St. Jude Kids

Lucy Hale, Kellie Pickler, Sara Evans and Scotty McCreery were among the country stars who gathered with more than 1,000 country music industry leaders in Memphis January 16-19 to kick off the 25th Anniversary of the Country Cares for St. Jude Kids program to support the work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

The annual seminar event, started by Alabama’s Randy Owen, is one of country music’s largest gatherings. In addition to raising awareness and funds for St. Jude, the seminar also gives St. Jude patients the chance to visit with some of their favorite artists and celebrate them along with radio partners who together have raised more than $500 million for the hospital.

“It’s inspiring to think about the major impact the country music industry has had on St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and I am so grateful to all of the men and women in country radio and fellow artists and friends in the country music industry who lend their support for this organization that I hold so dearly,” Randy Owen said. “The turnout for this event is further evidence of the country music industry’s continued commitment and support of the research, treatments and cures provided by this amazing place that has saved the lives of countless children from around the world.”

Lucy Hale, a Memphis native, has a personal connection to St. Jude. Her stepsister was a patient at the hospital at just four months old with stage IV neuroblastoma. “They thought she was going to die, but she is 18 years cancer free,” Lucy said. “My stepfather says that the people who work here changed their lives. This place is a Godsend. The people who work here are 100 percent dedicated. This puts things in perspective. I’m leaving here inspired. These kids are so unbelievably strong. It just makes me want to be a better person.”
