Artist of the Week: Steel Magnolia


Artist of the Week: Steel Magnolia
Meghan Linsey and Joshua Scott Jones not only develop chemistry in their romance but also infuse it in their song, resulting to an irresistible track 'Keep on Lovin' You'.


It all started at a Nashville karaoke bar. Two strong-willed, powerful personalities, Meghan Linsey and Joshua Scott Jones, met, dated and then formed a country music duo under the moniker Steel Magnolia. Together, they tried out their talent in singing competition "Can You Duet" and won the first place.

Their humble beginning bloomed into something so musically refreshing, leading them to win over many more influential fans and supporters. They secured a record deal with Big Machine and dropped a debut single "Keep on Lovin' You" which later became a Top 5 hit on Billboard Country Songs chart.

They additionally have snagged at least eight major award nominations, including Vocal Duo of the Year at the 2010 CMA Awards and Single of the Year for Breakthrough Artist at American Music Awards. Those achievements made them one of those "Whom to Watch" country acts.

Looking back at the path that brought them to where they are now, Josh said it all caught him by surprise. He gushed, "I've got to be honest. I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd be in a duo with my girlfriend. But it was an undeniable thing, and people connected to it."

23-year-old Meghan chimed in, "We both had to swallow some pride and get on the wagon, because there was definitely something special there. Other people could see that. In fact everyone around us could see it but us."

Now, this country music duo is having their first studio album "Steel Magnolia" released across United States on January 11. They showcase their blues and soul-infused Country Rock as well as sassy attitude on album tracks, including Keith Urban-penned "Homespun Love," and break-up ballad, "Edge of Goodbye", the first song Meghan and Josh ever wrote together.
