Editorial Reviews

From the Artist

"I've always wanted to sing country music, I've grown up with country music. I love how real everybody is, not just the artists, but the fans."

Product Description

Every country artist once had a day job that pays the bills and fills the void between hopeful aspiration and bonafide success. However, never in the history of country music has someone taken a more celebrated path on the road to their country music dream than Julianne Hough (pronounced Huff). A triple threat as a singer, actress and dancer, Julianne 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). The show, which pairs professional dancers with music, sports, film and television celebrities, has become a cultural phenomenon and Julianne its top star. Though Julianne has been winning world dance titles since her early teens, her ultimate goal has always been a career in country music. 'I've always wanted to sing country music,' says the 19 year-old blonde. 'I've grown up with country music. I love how real everybody is, not just the artists, but the fans.' Recorded in Nashville, Julianne's debut disc reveals her appreciation for country music's roots as well as her fresh-faced contributions to the genre's future. She has a warm, textured voice that is equally suited to feisty up-tempo tunes and contemplative ballads, both of which can be found on her debut. 'I love story songs and message songs,' she says, 'but I also love quirky, fun, uptempo songs that make you want to just get up and move.'

4.0 out of 5 stars Ode to Joy, Writ Modern February 14, 2009
Format:MP3 Music
To be honest, I was predisposed to dislike Julianne Hough (Pronounced "Huff.") She had everything I dislike about modern Nashville music: young, pretty, blonde, not a songwriter, known for something besides music. She brought everything to the table that needed to be cleared.

But then I saw and heard her. Imagine a dark and rainy day; midnight at mid-day, with a downpour filling the streets to overflowing. There, in the midst of it, is Julianne Hough, skipping along, covered by a shining sunshine umbrella, clean, dry and happy. Despite your darkest angry resentments, you cannot dislike her; in fact, you cannot help but be grateful only to have seen her.

Silly? Yes. Implausible? Yes, but there it is.

The songs are not timeless, philosophical or deep, although several are catchy and fun. Barely 20 years of age, Hough is not a powerful singer, although she is virtually flawless technically. But this album isn't about the music. It isn't about the marketing. It isn't about anything at all. It is simply a celebration of a very happy, charming, likable young lady whose joie de vivre one cannot help but share.

3.0 out of 5 stars Julianne Hough June 22, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a very enjoyable collection by a fresh voice and a remarkable clairity. I was surpirised by the tonal changes and the vocal control Julianne displayed. It doesn't sound like a first CD at all. It also doesn't sound like it will be her last.

There is also a variety to the type and style of songs contained and each is delivered with a precise crispness and an entertaining flair. The production and finish are all first rate and the whole CD is completely enjoyable.

If you like country music, I don't see how you can pass this up. I think it portends a great many good things to come from Julianne. The duet with her brother shows that talent is a family trait as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Song Memorable July 19, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Julianne Hough has the vocal talent (and of course dance and modeling looks also)Much like Carie Underwood, they are both young, and beautiful. They both have somewhat similar vocal ranges. But the difference is that Carie had the scrutiny of Idol ranks and of course was backed by Simon Cowell and his major music influences, and she had some great commercially written material. The harmony parts in comparing the two, sound similar.
As a country songwriter and producer, I understand the success ingredients are great-song+delivery. Many times the marketing and artist appeal overrides that of delivery, such as in this case. There is no doubt she has the vocal ability, but her style is pushed! The songs and most notably, arrangements do not, in my opinion, reflect or bring out her true talent. The world does not need more songs, it just needs better ones! One cannot help but take a look at Reba, her twang voice, but wow, she can deliver a song that really makes you believe her and feel for the song contents. Julianne, if you read this, get a producer that will help you be true to yourself in the conveying of the songs. I believe the production of the songs on this latest CD song are like others just trying to mass market. As a result, none are memorable and none will in my opinion will ever reach the top charts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can Sing and Dance May 28, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This album is a good beginning for Ms. Hough. She's got a good, solid voice. The songs are good too. They're not sappy or just fluff like one might expect from such a young lady. There's not many uptempo "rockers," the album tends more toward a measured tempo. However, those songs are not boring or tedious. The lyrics are good and the songs hold the listener's attention; the album doesn't ever get tedious. Good stuff here. The dancer is off on the right foot with this album.

2.0 out of 5 stars A disappointment November 13, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Fairly routine country music fare, and quite disappointing. Julianne adopts a highly affected southern accent on most songs - it sounds forced and artificial (That Song In My Head, About Life, Hello). It's like you're not hearing Julianne, you're hearing her impression of how a country singer should sound. She would have been better advised to sing using her natural voice. Often the lyrics that emanate from her mouth are not at all believable (Jimmy Ray McGee, About Life). That might be okay if she was recording an album of cover songs, but these are new compositions. To sum things up, Julianne Hough - although a decent singer - is a country music poser.

Best song: Help Me, Help You.
Worst Songs: You, You, You; Hide Your Matches; My Hallelujah Song.

3.0 out of 5 stars Should keep her day job July 9, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I really wanted to love this CD, but after a couple of songs I grew tired of her voice. I just knew it would be great because this gal can dance like no other! I do love the duet with her brother though, they sound so good together and Derek has a wonderful voice. He should record a CD himself! Maybe she will get better material and her voice will mature a bit later on.

She's hot, she can dance, and of course she can sing a little too. As a matter of fact I first saw her country videos before I knew she was a pro dancer.

That Song In My Head is a fantastic song. I hope country radio and music fans really embrace Julianne because she could be the next big thing.
