Sounds Like: The Pretty Little Liars star and perennial Teen Choice Award winner says she grew up listening to both kinds of music: country and Disney princess songs. Those influences coalesce on her new single “You Sound Good to Me,” a perkily infatuated breeze set to arena-ready fiddle and mandolin.

Why You Should Pay Attention: A gal can hardly find a home these days on country radio, which is a stomping ground for lightweight hunks telling big lies about good times in small towns. But Hale, beginning her fourth season as PLL’s Aria, brings 3 million weekly ABC Family viewers and even more Twitter followers. “You Sound Good to Me,” which rides the recent Nashville trend of likening your crush to a song (see Florida-Georgia Line’s “Cruise”), sold 42,000 downloads in its first week, hopping into the Billboard Hot 100 and the country Top 30. A full-length, recorded with producer Mark Bright (Rascal Flatts, Scotty McCreery, Carrie Underwood) and featuring a Joe Nichols duet, is expected this spring.
She Says: “While recording we would usually start at about 10 a.m. every morning and break at about 1 for lunch. I’m obsessed with ranch dressing and would pretty much have it every day. After we ate, I would come back in to continue recording and sound 50 percent better than before. So we joked that ranch dressing is my secret weapon.”

New people bring new problems in “Oh, What Hard Luck Stories They All Hand Me,” an all-new episode of ABC Family’s hit original series “Pretty Little Liars,” premiering Tuesday, February 3rd (8:00 – 9:00 PM ET/PT).
Aria, Emily, Hanna and Spencer have been burned before by newcomers to Rosewood, so it’s no surprise the four ladies are wary when someone new crosses their path. Spencer lets down her guard a bit as she spends more time with Jonny, and Emily continues to try and figure out Talia as she keeps getting mixed signals from her co-workers. When Mona’s friend Lesli shows up in town, Hanna is tasked to get her back story and find out if Lesli is really who she says she is. Are the girls wise to keep an eye on everyone, or can they allow a bit of comfort room without worrying it is an “A” trap?
Meanwhile, Aria becomes concerned about Mike’s recent behavior and Holbrook returns to town.
“Pretty Little Liars” is produced by Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Horizon Television and is executive produced by I. Marlene King, Oliver Goldstick, Leslie Morgenstein and Joseph Dougherty.
