Lucy Hale is going back to her roots — her country roots that is.
The mid-tempo track, which Hale previously described to MTV News as “pretty straight country,” is the first off her upcoming debut album and will be available on iTunes Tuesday. It seems poised to be a hit on country radio, as Hale perfectly paints a picture of falling in love over guitar, drum beats and a very catchy chorus.
“Like an old song on the radio/that you grew up to and everybody knows/ Rushin’ of the water when the river rolls/ Windin’ wild and free/ Baby, you sound good to me,” she sings on the track.
Hale will premiere the video for “You Sound Good to Me” during the winter premiere of her hit ABC Family show, “Pretty Little Liars,” which kicks off Tuesday at 8 p.m. EST. The clip will feature appearances from fellow country star Taylor Swift, John Mayer and Band of Horses.
The Memphis-born singer, who first showcased her singing ability on the talent competition “American Juniors” in 2003, has been working hard on her debut effort since she was signed to Hollywood Records back in 2012.
Shortly after inking the deal, she sat down with MTV News and told us that her inspiration behind her sound would be “a Taylor Swift/Carrie Underwood-ish hybrid.”
“I’m going to do a country/pop album, and I couldn’t be more excited,” Hale told MTV News back in 2012. “I grew up in Tennessee, so that’s always been my heart and soul. It’s hard to come across a true country fan in L.A., but it’s true that the fans are so loyal, once you’re in their circle, you’re in for your entire career. It just really speaks to me. Country music has so much soul and is so heartfelt. I think it’s a perfect fit for me. I think it will surprise people.”
