ET's Katie Krause caught up with Hyland in January
where she said she's "not ruling" out releasing her own music.
"My boyfriend got me a guitar, because he's like, 'I love your music and you should be able to write and compose your own music,'" she explained. "I thought that was really sweet, but I don't know...maybe if I start getting bored? I'm not ruling it out!"
The former child star also has taken a stance of empowerment this year, telling ET in August
, "I have grown into myself as a woman. The only person that you are really obligated to please is yourself. And if you don't love yourself, you can't love anyone else."
