Lucy Hale may famous because of Pretty Little Liars, but the 23-year-old starlet is going back to roots.

She's hard at working on her debut country music album.

That's right, country music!

Wow! Have you seen Taylor Swift's edgy look for her new video?

"I'm from Tennessee," Hale told me at the American Music Awards. "My mom lives in Nashville. I'm born and bred country. That's all I listen, too."

Hollywood Records is set to drop her album next summer.

And guess who she's been cowriting some of the three dozen songs she's already stockpiled? Sugarland's Kristian Bush!

Speaking of music, look who just met Queen Elizabeth II

"He said, 'You sure u want to do this? You're going to be put through the ringer,'" Hale said. "But I was like, 'I'm ready!'"

Hale knows she's got some work to do before she's headlining at the Grand Ole Opry.

"I have a long way to go and I have a lot to prove," she said. "But I'm really excited."

And so are we.

Here's hoping we get to add Lucy to our Musicians Performing Live on Stage photo gallery someday
