'Pretty Little Liars' star Lucy Hale is forging full steam ahead with her country career, even appearing on the 2013 'CMA Country Christmas' special on Dec. 2 ahead of her debut country single release, which slated for January.

Hale looked pretty as a present, all wrapped in red with lips painted a similar shared of scarlet as she delivered a spunky, perky version of 'Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).'

The actress-turned-singer looked and sounded great, and the 2013 'CMA Country Christmas' event was the perfect promotional opportunity for her to allow those not already in-the-know become aware of her musical carer. She's a Memphis native, so country music is in her DNA.

Doing an upbeat number like 'Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)' was a smart choice and gave the viewer a sense of Hale's voice. It was super cute when she closed her performance with a chuckle, as if to say, "I am so excited to be here."
