Turns out two time "Dancing With the Stars" champ Julianne Hough can sing, too. She says some of her fans may be surprised she's coming out with a country album, but she says it's an obvious step for her. Hough says singing has always been her number-1 passion. She says "I grew up listening to country music. I grew up singing it. I was in a family band." As for fan reaction to her singing career, Hough says "there was a worry, but it's been the complete opposite." And if Hough has her way this will be the first of many albums. She says "singing is where I want my career to go." Hough's current single is "That Song In My Head." Her debut album comes May 20th.
