In 2008, professional dancer turned singer and actress, Julianne Hough, released her debut self-titled country album, garnering singles “That Song In My Head” and “My Hallelujah Song”. Julianne Hough debuted at Number 1 on the Top Country Albums Chart and peaked at Number 3 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, selling just shy of 490,000 copies overall.
With such a successful entry into country music, it’s a wonder (and a shame) that Julianne didn’t release a followup project.
If movies such as Burlesque and Footloose didn’t prove that Julianne is a true triple threat and a great asset to our genre, her performance during Grease Live! last night should have. And if you are still unconvinced, here is a collection of reasons we need to reel this talent back in … stat.
She can shake it for Luke Bryan on command.
She is somewhere on a beach waiting for Dierks Bentley.
She celebrates the days back before everything became automatic.
She sees nothing wrong with getting her sun daze on.
Occasionally she gets blown away.
She looks like this.
She dances like this.
She sings like this.
I rest my case.
