Lucy Hale is known for her role on ABC's hit drama 'Pretty Little Liars,' but hopes she'll soon be known for her country music, too. Finally, the entertainer has announced that the ball is officially rolling on her debut album.

The 24-year old singer and actress, who was born and raised in Memphis, Tenn., has always been in love with country music, and she's taking action to cement herself in the genre with her first album.

Over the past several months, Hale has been trekking to Music City to write and record with producer Mark Bright, and she definitely has her game face on, as she'll begin visiting country radio alongside the Bigger Picture Group promotion team. Her upcoming single and album will be released on DMG Nashville/Bigger Picture Group in 2014.

"Music is my heart and I'm so blessed to say that this album turned out to be something I'm very proud of,” Hale notes. "I'm unbelievably excited to hit the road this fall to meet country radio and share what I've been working on and feel extremely lucky to work alongside DMG Nashville, Hollywood Records, Bigger Picture Group and the awesome Mark Bright.”

This fall, Hale will hit the road to meet and perform for country radio programmers across the U.S. before her first single is released next year. She's mentioned that fans will either love or hate it, but based on her hard work and the pride she exemplifies, fans will likely join in her excitement.

The actress first began warming up her vocal chords as a young girl, singing along with the radio to her favorite Martina McBride, Faith Hill and Shania Twain songs. Now, she has a chance to follow in their footsteps.
