It's been 18 months since Lucy Hale signed a recording contract, and the wait is over for fans with the release of her first country single, 'You Sound Good to Me.'

The single was released at midnight on Jan. 7 to coincide with the date of the winter premier of Hale's show, 'Pretty Little Liars.' The video for 'You Sound Good to Me' also premiered during the show.

Hale has earned fame as an actress on the hit series, but she says that she originally moved to Los Angeles when she was 15 in hopes of pursuing music.

“It’s the first time people are being introduced to Lucy, because a lot of people know me from ‘Pretty Little Liars’ or other acting work that I’ve done, but a lot of people don’t know me and the things that I’ve been through so far,” she says in an interview with Taste of Country.

“I’m so thankful that we got to record this album this past year, because I felt like it was the perfect moment in my life," she continues. "It was a transitional year for me, and I feel like I grew up a lot and figured out a lot of things and, lucky enough, it was when we were writing and recording.”

The single is available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon.
