Julianne Hough Celebrates No. 1 Album
Julianne Hough the dancer may soon be better known as Julianne Hough the singer . . . if she isn't already! The two-time 'Dancing with the Stars' champ and now country singer has the No. 1 album on the country charts this week. Her self-titled debut sold more than 67,000 copies in its first seven days on the shelves.
"Having the opportunity to make a record in Nashville and then getting to share that with the world is beyond my wildest imagination," Hough gushes. "There are so many people to thank for helping me achieve this dream . . . from my family, the writers and musicians, and to everyone at 'Dancing with the Stars.'"
Hough's debut album lands at No. 3 on the overall album chart that includes all genres.This marks the highest country debut of an artist since 2006.
Hough is performing several tracks from the album in our AOL Music Sessions studios today, including a duet with her brother, fellow 'Dancing With the Stars' pro Derek Hough. Check back right here on The Boot to watch their live in-studio performance on June 20.
