The 22-year-old Pretty Little Liars actress has signed a recording deal with Hollywood Records with a single and album due in 2013.
“I’m overjoyed and honored to become a member of the Hollywood Records family,“ Lucy said in a statement. “I’ve admired the careers they’ve made and can’t wait to see how my musical path is paved out. I’d just like to thank [Executive Vice President of Disney Music Group] Ken Bunt and everyone involved for giving me the chance to show a whole different side of myself, which is a huge passion for music.”
Lucy credits Britney Spears‘s “Baby One More Time” video for sparking a serious interest in pursuing music.
But as a native of Memphis, Tenn., Lucy won’t be following in Brit‘s pop footsteps – she’s decided go with her country roots!
