Where in the World is…Julianne Hough?

Well, Julianne is a busy little bee. :-)  This past week, she tested for a lead role in the remake of Footloose, also staring Chace Crawford (but which should be staring DEREK HOUGH – sorry John).  According to Entertainment Weekly’s Hollywood Insider (and a billion other outlets):

Crawford may soon have his onscreen dance partner. A Paramount spokesperson confirmed to EW that Dancing With the Stars’ Julianne Hough will screen-test this week. Hough’s recent success as a country music star could give her an advantage. Says Meron, “It’s a much more singing-intensive movie for the female lead.”

Throughout the summer, Julianne will be on tour opening for George Strait and Blake Shelton – there are 42 cities listed on her official web site so odds are good that she’s going to be at a town near you.

In the recent past, Julianne has raked in a number of honors, not the least of which was the Academy of Country Music’s Top New Artist award.  She was also named to Maxim’s Hot 100 list (see what brother Derek has to say about her number 25 rank) and People’s Most Beautiful list. 

Next up, besides the tour?  The CMT Awards on June 16 in Nashville. Julianne is up for USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year for That Song in My Head.
