Nashville TV star Lennon Stella recently signed her first recording contract with Columbia Records which will see her releasing her debut album later this year. The record is one of the most eagerly anticipated of 2018 and it’s set to see the 18-year-old making a musical departure from the country-pop sound she creates as Maddie Conrad on the hit US drama.
Stella announced the news of her record deal earlier this year via social media with a gushing message;
