Julianne Hough suffers from endometriosis, needs appendix removed
Tuesday, October 28, 2008
– Julianne Hough was diagnosed with endometriosis and will undergo "minor surgery to remove her appendix," she said on her web site Tuesday. Hough experienced mild stomach pains last week and was taken to Cedars Sinai medical center. There was no word on when the surgery would be.
After consulting with her doctor, this course of treatment was recommended. Hough spoke about it on Monday night's "Dancing with the Stars" and plans on returning to the show in a week to dance with celebrity partner Cody Linley if they continue to advance in the competition. Pro dancer, Edyta Sliwinska, will fill in for Hough as Linley's partner this week should he make it through tomorrow's elimination.
Endometriosis is the development of uterine-lining tissue outside the uterus on the surfaces of organs in the pelvis or abdomen where they are not supposed to grow. It is a common medical condition found in 5-10 percent of women of reproductive age around the world.

Of the six legitimate songs, It Wasn't His Child/Mary Did You Know stands out most for being a duel-song duet with Phil Vassar. Its spiritual focus also »»»

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Lots to like about McKenna (when you could hear her)
Lori McKenna had lots of reasons to be in a good mood. First off, the opening band, a pop act called teenender included two of her sons. In two days, her 11th disc, "The Tree" would be released to glowing reviews.
So it would seem that this homecoming show was the ideal setting with all five kids, her husband, siblings, cousins, people who... »»»

A few songs into Sugarland's show, Kristian Bush referenced the band's five-year gap between tours saying, "A lot of people think Jennifer and I have been on a five-year vacation. Actually, we've been very busy."
