derek hough nashville season 3 'Nashville' Season 3: Derek Hough is joining, but not dancing with any stars2014 is shaping up to be a killer year for Derek Hough. After recently announcing he will return as a pro for “Dancing with the Stars” Season 19, his memoir “Lessons from a Life in Motion” is skyrocketing up the book charts. 

To top it all off, Entertainment Weekly has confirmed the Emmy winning choreographer is headed to “Nashville” for a multi-episode arc scheduled to air in October — but he won’t be dancing.

Hough is reportedly playing Noah West, a movie star in town to make a biopic of a famous country singer. Hmmm, Rayna Jaymes, perhaps?

“Nashville” Season 3 returns Wednesday Sept. 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
