Hough is definitely a Jane of all trades: She’s a two-time professional champion of a hit dance competition show and, during Season 5, was nominated for a 2007 Creative Arts Primetime Emmy for “Outstanding Choreography.”
Then, in 2008, her self-titled debut album hit No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and she joined Brad Paisley on tour. Just when you thought the girl couldn’t get more talented, Hough received her first leading role in the 2011 remake of a classic American musical-drama.
