Album Review: Julianne Hough – ‘Julianne Hough’

Julianne Hough is already known to millions of fans as the two-time professional dance champion on ABC-TV\'s top-rated Dancing with the Stars (DWTS).

“That Song in My Head” is certainly addictive.  Maybe we need such a happy demeanor in such hard times and that’s why the album appears to be selling well. 

Hough has the pipes, but hopefully her next album will have her taking some chances and differentiating herself from the rest of the pack.
