I’m only going to type her name out in full once because it’s hard for my fingers to type it all, but Hayden Panettiere is really making a mark on Nashville right now. The actress is the star of the new show that shares its name with the home of country music. I’ll admit that I’m behind on the episodes, but from what I read and what I hear the show is really a hit.
This song is one of the tracks being promoted by the show on iTunes and other country charts. It’s a big hit in terms of sales and people are loving the character and Hayden the singer too. It’s a great success story and hopefully the show will be around for a few years.
Telescope – Hayden Panettiere
From a vocal standpoint I’ll admit that I had no idea Hayden could sing. Well, I should admit that I’ve never really seen her on a TV show or in a movie before. I just remember reading a story about her swimming with the whales in an attempt to save them or something. She has also been mentioned for looking similar to Miranda Lambert.
So outside of that knowledge I came into this song with little background knowledge.
The song is good, though. It’s meant to be a fun song that shows off the powerful attitude of a character. I think Hayden more than holds her own as a country singer and hopefully this is just a taste of what’s to come with the music from this show. Hayden certainly could have a few hits by the time the show is over.
This song certainly won’t win any awards for song of the year, but it’s a good song that people like and that’s a big accomplishment for a new artist.
