By now, most media outlets have released stories about Julianne Hough and her recent comments about her first appearance on current boyfriend Ryan Seacrest’s radio show back when she was dating country singer Chuck Wicks.
For those who haven’t heard any details, Julianne shared details of her first meeting with Seacrest during an interview with Glamour magazine. She and then-boyfriend Wicks went on Ryan’s show, and according to Hough, the “American Idol” host was flirting with her throughout the meeting.

The interview’s on YouTube, and I blush when I hear it because Ryan is hitting on me the entire time,” Julianne gushed. “When Chuck and I broke up, I wanted to be single. That lasted five months, then Ryan and I went on a date.” [/box]
We at MCE don’t typically delve into celebrity gossip and anything outside of country music. And while this story certainly is outside of those boundaries, we still felt the need to share our thoughts on this. After all, that’s what we do…we share our reactions to the latest news in country music. But the problem with this is that Julianne Hough, Ryan Seacrest, and Chuck Wicks, in this context, have nothing to do with country music.
Ryan Seacrest is the most recognizable man in entertainment right now. Julianne Hough has released on country album, and that was back in 2008. Chuck Wicks has been out of the public eye for the past couple of years, which has included a split with his record label, but, as we’ve reported here, he has a new album ready for release.
These stories don’t really relate to the world of country music, even though there is a country singer involved. That’s right, there is ONE country singer here. Look, Julianne Hough had some success on the radio with “That Song In My Head” and later with “Is That So Wrong.” But she’s not just a singer. It’s not where she started her career and it’s certainly not where she’ll end up when all is said and done. She’s a singer, a dancer, and an actress. This is a Hollywood story…not a country music story.
We’ll keep you updated on the latest news surrounding Chuck Wicks’ new album, as well as Julianne Hough, if and when that becomes a reality.[signoff]
