The Pretty Little Liars forming a goth-pop girlband may still be a distant dream, but one of the stars has just released a rather good single. Lucy Hale has been signed by Hollywood Records (home to Selena, Demi etc) as a country artist, and premiered her first official video this week for the super-catchy You Sound Good To Me. Often when actresses decide to launch a music career it's just a way to make some quick cash for the label, but this has been really well thought-out. Lucy, who took part in TV talent show American Juniors as a kid, is fun and convincing as a country artist and the song is perfectly targeted to Pretty Little Liars' teen girl audience.
