Julianne Hough

With artists flooding into Nashville from rock ’n’ roll and reality shows, it’s easy to be skeptical of a newcomer who initially rose to fame through her fancy footwork on TV’s Dancing With the Stars. But in this case the skepticism shouldn’t last long—Julianne Hough has been singing since childhood, and her chops are fully evident throughout this ebullient pop-country charmer of a debut. The single “That Song in My Head” is just as insidiously catchy as its title suggests, and tracks like the slow-burning “Hide Your Matches,” the sassy “Hello” and the small-town parable “Jimmy Ray McGee” are just as instantly memorable.
