Julianne Hough


The guys want to do more than dance with Julianne Hough. They want to rock out with her, too!

The two-time Dancing With the Stars champ, who opted not to appear on the hit show's upcoming eighth season in order to pursue her dreams of country-singing glory, will be joining bonafide Nashville star Toby Keith on a couple of tour dates next month.

Per USA Today, Hough will open for Keith Feb. 6 in Louisville, Kt., and Feb. 22 in Des Moines, Iowa.

The 20-year-old songbird will also serve as one of the opening acts for George Strait's summer tour, kicking off May 15 in Charlotte, N.C.

"I'm definitely going to focus on the music," Hough blogged on Fancast in explaining her decision to skip the next season of Dancing. "My first album was a learning experience, and I can't wait for the next one. I feel like the writing and producing will be even better, really awesome."
