One of the new faces for CMA Country Christmas was “Pretty Little Liars” star Lucy Hale, looking smashing in a bright red dress. She sang “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)” for her solo number — video above.

We’ll replace it with better video when we have it. But either way, it sounds like Hale had a great time. She tweeted after the taping, “Well…that was crazy amazing. Thank you CMA Christmas for including me! I can’t believe my life.”

This is just the latest step on Hale’s journey to break into the music business. She was an “American Juniors” contestant back in the day and will have a country album out in 2014.

How do you think she did?
