Julianne Hough was born on 20th july 1988 in Cancer.Although she has been winning world dance titles since her early teens, Julianne’s ultimate goal has always been a career in country music. Her self-titled debut album, released by Universal Music Group Nashville in 2008, hit the Billboard Country charts at #1 and entered the Billboard 200 at #3, marking the highest debut for a country artist since 2006.
Her first two singles from the album, “That Song in My Head” and “My Hallelujah Song,” soared up the country charts and she earned her first two 2009 Academy of Country Music Awards for Top New Female Vocalist and Top New Artist. Hitting the road for the first time as a recording artist, Julianne opened for superstar Brad Paisley and later toured with George Strait, playing over 100 shows in 2009.
Her second album, The Julianne Hough Holiday Collection, became an instant holiday classic for her legions of fans, distributed exclusively at Target. Her much-anticipated follow-up album will be released by Mercury Nashville later this year. Julianne has written multiple tracks for the new album, working with Dann Huff, one the hottest producers in country music today (Martina McBride, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, among others).
Produced once again by Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie and recorded in the same studio as the original 25 years earlier, the new video (directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Paul Haggis) debuted on February 12, 2010, during the Opening Ceremony of the Vancouver Winter Olympics featuring such music legends as Barbra Streisand, Tony Bennett, Celine Dion and Gladys Knight and contemporary superstars including Will.I.Am, Jennifer Hudson, Pink, Fergie and Kanye West, amongst countless other artists from virtually every musical genre.
