Lake Conroe, Texas – Rising country music singer and former Dancing with the Stars professional champion Julianne Hough is the special guest performer on Sunday, October 18 at the Toyota Texas Bass Classic (TTBC). Hough will join Josh Turner on stage Sunday for the final day of this bass fishing world championship and music festival. The TTBC will be held October 16 – 18 on Lake Conroe in Montgomery, Texas.

“We are very excited to announce the addition of Julianne to our weekend line-up of outstanding country music stars,” said Tournament Director Lenny Francoeur. “She is a very talented young lady and a rising star in the country music world. Many fans are familiar with her from her Dancing with the Stars fame, but we believe her fresh sound will be a huge hit for our concert fans.”

Sunday, October 18 will also be the final round of the TTBC. Hough will take the stage Sunday afternoon before the final weigh-in and crowning of the Toyota Texas Bass Classic Champion.

Texas country music legend Pat Green will headline two days of performances on Saturday, October 17 along with a concert from Zona Jones.

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. The show, which pairs professional dancers with music, sports, film and television celebrities, has become a cultural phenomenon and Julianne its top star.

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, up-tempo songs that make you want to just get up and move.”

She recently topped both the country and Top 200 charts with her self-titled album, as well as with the infectious debut single “That Song In My Head” and follow-up “My Hallelujah Song”.

She has topped Maxim’s Hot 100 and People’s Most Beautiful lists and graced the covers of CosmoGirl, USA Today, People and Shape two times. Julianne sings “The Taste Is Gonna Move Ya” jingle for Wrigley’s™ Juicy Fruit gum and supports Clothes Off Our Back, the Susan G. Komen Foundation, St. Jude and serves on the American Red Cross Cabinet.
