Julianne Hough doesn’t believe in worrying about weight during the holiday season.    

“I don’t diet,” the Dancing With The Stars beauty, 20, tells me. “I eat!”

will perform tunes from her Christmas album Sounds of the Season: The Julianne Hough Collection on TNT’s Christmas In Washington, which airs Wednesday at 8pm ET.

She has already won the heart of fellow country singer Chuck Wicks. He agrees: She loves to eat.

“When I first met her, we sat down and talked over five different desserts in Las Vegas at the ACM Awards,” Chuck, 29, tells me. “We realized we had so much in common – you could see the sincerity in what she says, and she’s so genuine. She’s so beautiful inside that the outside’s just a bonus.”

Julianne has equal praise for her man.

“We complement each other well, and we really understand each other’s careers and passions,” she tells me. “He’s an amazing guy.”

Tune in Wednesday to catch Julianne – and Darius Rucker – perform.
