Listen to Carrie Underwood on iHeartRadio

Country star Carrie Underwood is giving Lucy Hale some advice. And it had nothing to do with proper tire-slashing protocol when punishing a cheating ex.

It took two years, but "Pretty Little Liars" star Lucy Hale‘s debut country album Road Between has finally hit shelves today (June 3). “A lot of people know me as Aria,” Hale told MTV, “I think after listening to the album, they’ll get a clear idea of who Lucy Hale is as a human being.”

Carrie Underwood is keenly aware of the struggles and joys of breaking into the country scene, so she gave Lucy a pearl of wisdom c/o MTV. “Just be strong. Country music is definitely in need of more really strong females…Give it 1000% every time and they can’t stop you.”

As long as A doesn’t get in the way, we have a feeling she’ll be A-OK.
