UPDATE: Hollywood Life has a beautiful review of the soundtrack, especially for newcomer Maddie Baillio who plays Tracy. Below is what they say about Derek’s singing. Be sure to read the review on Hollywood Life.
“All of the tunes on the soundtrack are absolutely infectious. Every single actor brings such a great energy. Dancing With the Stars’ Derek Hough proves he’s got just as much singing talent as he does dancing talent. After listening to “The Nicest Kids In Town,” you’ll have it on repeat. Derek’s voice is that irresistible.”
