Hough Thanksgiving

Posted in: Dancing with the Stars,Derek Hough,Hough Family by Marriann on November 28, 2008

Happy Holidays!

Thanksgiving was great. We have another day to go to the indoor gocarts, La Reve, and a birthday party for Julianne’s sister Marabeth at the Palazzo in Vegas with the family and People magazine.

I am very proud and was so excited to be at the show this week after flying in from Nashville and Driving to California from Vegas to see Derek Dance and take the trophy tuesday night.

Derek unfortunately could not be with us for Thanksgiving. His rigorous schedule is keeping him so busy. Tuesday night Derek flew on a private plane to New York for Good Morning America and some other talk shows the following day.

He flew back from NY to CA Thanksgiving day and has to be in the studio friday to rehearse with the band and start rehearsing to go on tour with dancing with the stars. His schedule is up at 4 AM, meeting, talking and playing for the radio stations. Then, that night performing for dancing with the stars, and then play at a venue with his band after the show for a couple of hours. Then, start the next day, up at four and same schedule for 5 days a week for two months. I’ll see him either in Vegas or in Nashville.

I’ll start uploading a few pictures from backstage on Dancing with the Stars later tonight or tomorrow.


  1. WOW, I hope Derek can rest on some days during the week!!! Good luck with that schedule Derek … but if anyone can do it, you can!

  2. Congratulations to Derek on his 1st mirror ball trophy. His schedule sounds crazy and I wish him the best with everything that he is doing. How wonderful to be able to spend Thanksgiving and Marabeth’s birthday together. I’m just surprised that People Magazine would be included in such a private event but I guess the publicity is worth it. Can’t wait to see the article/photos from the event.

  3. Good luck with the busy schedule Derek, my life is pretty crazy too and these quotes always remind me to stick to it “There is no telling how many miles you’ll have to run while chasing a dream” – Chinese proverb and “Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.” – William Feather. Hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving and have a happy holiday season.
