Lucy Hale has called time on her relationship with Joel Crouse after distance became too much for their romance.

The 'Pretty Little Liars' actress has called time on her short-lived relationship with country singer Joel Crouse after their busy schedules put a strain on their romance.

A source told Us Magazine: "Lucy and Joel are done, it was hard with the distance. She's working a lot on 'Pretty Little Liars' and on music -- she debuted at the Opry [in Nashville, Tennessee] over the weekend. It got to be too much."

The former couple first sparked speculation they were dating in April after they were spotted together at a Laker's game in Los Angeles.

The 25-year-old singer took to her Instagram account after the game to post a picture of her and Joel, 22.

She accompanied the snap with the caption: "First lakers game. Was really great teaching this one the rules of the game. And seeing him looking like a kid in a candy store @joelcrouse. (sic)."

The brunette beauty hasn't mentioned her ex-boyfriend on her social networking sites since June 15 when she wished him happy birthday.

She said on Twitter at the time: "Thank y'all for the bday wishes already. So kind. And also a huge happy birthday to Mr. @JoelCrouse see ya soon (sic)."
