Julianne Hough and Chuck Wicks may have shown a united front by attending the Country Music Association Awards together on Wednesday, but one night later, Hough confirmed to PEOPLE that the couple has indeed parted ways.
“We’re both just really, really busy with our careers, and we spend a lot of time apart from each other – so we’re just taking a little break right now,” Hough, 21, told PEOPLE Thursday night as she walked the red carpet in Nashville for the premiere of Tim McGraw’s film The Blind Side.
But the Dancing with the Stars pro insists her relationship with fellow country singer Wicks, 30, is still amicable.

“Honestly, Chuck and I are such good friends – we still hang out all the time, and we’re still writing together,” she says.
