It's official. Rumors of a very country cast on 'Dancing With the Stars' have been confirmed, as both Kellie Pickler and Wynonna Judd have signed on for the 16th season of the super popular reality program. Two country stars from different eras will be going toe to toe on the show.

Pickler will pair up with dancer Derek Hough, brother of Julianne, while Judd will have Tony Dovolani as her pro dance partner.

The news was confirmed this morning, even though rumors began to pop up over the weekend, with both Pickler and Judd mentioned.

The new season of 'DWTS' kicks off (its dancing shoes) on March 18 at 8PM on ABC. Make a note or a calendar reminder now. You won't want to miss all the hotfooted drama.

Other competitors include former figure skate Dorothy Hamill and comedian Andy Dick as well as boxer Victor Ortiz, actors Ingo Rademacher, Zendaya Coleman and D.L. Hughley, Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones, gymnast Aly Raisman and reality television star Lisa Vanderpump.

Who will you root for? Could you imagine if both Kellie and Wynonna make it to the bitter end? We think they might have an edge, since both are musical and dancing is a part of their lives through their careers.

But you never know.

The competition will be fierce and we wish them both lots of luck as they shut up and dance for the next several weeks.
