at . Comments

Julianne Hough is more than just a beautiful face.

She's also more than an impressive dancer.

Indeed, the Dancing with the Stars professional is now a successful singer! Her self-titled debut album has landed at number-three on Billboard's The Billboard 200 and at number-one on the Top Country album sales charts after selling 67,000 copies in its first week of release.

The CD also represents the highest country debut for any new artist since 2006.

A Little Bit Country

"Country music has always been my passion," said Hough. "Having the opportunity to make a record in Nashville and then getting to share that with the world is beyond my wildest imagination."

Moreover, Hough's single "That Song In My Head" climbed three spots from No. 32 to No. 29 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart.

"There are so many people to thank for helping me achieve this dream," said Hough. "From my family, the writers and musicians, and to everyone at Dancing with the Stars."

What the heck, we'll take some credit, too! We have been talking up Julianne for months now. You're welcome, honey!
