Laura Bell, who has appeared in both "Hairspray" and "Legally Blonde: The Musical" on Broadway, has also relied on her acting chops while finishing her upcoming CD. The singer-actress has already filmed three videos for the new album.
"One is theatrical, and the other two are more meaningful," she tells The Boot. "One's for a ballad and the other is for a mid-tempo, and they have a message -- and one is sort of a dance video."
Having successfully balanced her ambitions as an actress and a singer, the Kentucky native says her proudest moments have to do with relationships more than career success.
"I always say that the best part of a person's career when they look back is the friends they've made, and honestly it really is," she notes.
The second season of "Hart of Dixie" begins Oct. 2 at 8:00 PM ET on the CW. Laura Bell's first episode on the show airs Oct 16.
