Looks like all the time spent in Music City for ABC’s new drama Nashville is rubbing off on one actress. Hayden Panettiere, who plays the role of singer Juliette Barnes, performed “Telescope” on last week’s episode. The track is now available digitally through iTunes, and has found airplay on some country radio stations in the United States this week. It’s not her first time trying her hand at the music scene: the actress recorded a pop album when she was younger, including a single release in 2008.
In an interview with US Weekly Hayden admits that she would love to record a country record someday. She said:
“I always said that if I was going to go back to music, I would do Country. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.”
There is no official confirmation from Hayden on if she really will be recording a country album. What do you think? After Jana Kramer has successfully transitioned from actress on One Tree Hill to a country music career, do you think Hayden can too?
