Is Nashville’s Hayden Panettiere a Singer in Real Life?
We have to say, when Hayden Panettiere (Juliette Barnes) opened up her mouth on Nashville and started singing, we were skeptical. Was that really her voice, or was some TV magic at work?
It turns out, Hayden is a legitimate chanteuse! Throughout the mid-2000s, she contributed songs to Disney Girlz Rock and Cinderella III: A Twist In Time. In 2008, she released a single, “Wake Up Call.” Though her music career didn’t exactly take off after that, it was clearly enough to convince Nashville’s producers that Hayden could pull off Juliette’s vocals all by herself.
And she has! In fact, we listen to “Love Like Mine” an embarrassing amount. Well done, Hayden!
She also hopes to record a country album someday, telling Us Weekly that she’s keeping her “fingers crossed” that it will work out.
