Country singer Chuck Wicks has been spending a lot of extra time with his girlfriend these days.He and Dancing With The Starspartner, Julianne Hough, seem to be happier than ever. We all saw that moment when Chuck got down on bended knee at the end oftheir dance last week, which made everyone wonder if the two are getting closer to tying the knot…
The couple has been dating for nine months, but they deny any wedding plans as of yet. Although Chuck admits that this is good practice for his future wedding,considering beforethe show hisdancing skills were limited to the electric slide. According to the Associated Press, he said jokingly, “When you go to weddings, and you hear ‘It’s Electric,’ I’m that guy. I go out there. I start it off.” Oh no. He’s that guy? Well, that just ruins everything.
But how is the couple handling spending day and night working together? Chuck describes himself as “a total goof ball,” but nonetheless, they are taking the competition very seriously. He realizes that the show is also a good opportunity for him to get exposure, he continues, “Let’s face it, a lot of people have no idea who I am. So this is a great way to say, ‘Hey, this is what I do. I hope you like my music, and I hope you like the way I can try to dance.”‘
Although Julianne is an accomplished singer who has also already taken home the Dancing With The Starsmirror ball trophy, Chuck admits, “This time it’s a little more personal. We’ve got a lot riding on this. I want to prove to her that I can do this, and I think, vice versa.”
