Joshua Scott Jones, best know as part of the country duo Steel Magnolia, is going solo!

Jones has just released his debut single, “Honk (If You’re Tonky),” and the track is available now on iTunes and other digital outlets. Regarding the new single, Joshua had this to share: “‘Honk (If You’re Tonky)’ spoke very loudly to me right off the bat as an anthem for guys. It speaks to the misunderstood side of men, that makes us rough around the edges while carrying the burden of a big heart and just wanting to live in harmony with yourself. What better than an ‘anthem’ for a first single?” You can stream and take a listen to the track here: http://youtu.be/feWZnCS5iHs.

The song serves as the lead single to his upcoming album, The Healing, due out later this year. You name the role, Joshua took it on with this album. From singing, writing, and playing multiple instruments (guitar, piano and even some percussion) to executive producing, this very personal album is all Joshua.

He explained: “It feels like a long time coming. It’s like moving into a new home or getting a new car; you have strong sentiment and deep attachment for the old car, but are eager to get behind the wheel of the new one.” He continued on to say, “I feel like at this point in my life as an artist, I can’t be anything but candid. The record certainly reflects my headspace over the last few years and tells the story of what I’ve gone through, especially the title track of the record, ‘The Healing.’”

Jones will be a playing a public showcase during Country Radio Seminar (CRS) week, Wednesday, February 19th at 12th & Porter. There, fans will get an advanced listen of his new material.

Jones is also looking forward to hitting the road again and connecting with the audience. Tour dates will be announced soon so stay tuned.

Steel Magnolia Breaking Up?

Steel Magnolia.

Have country music duo Steel Magnolia broken up? Their March 24th show at the Greenville, Tennessee’s Niswonger Performing Arts Center has been canceled. The venue’s director started the rumors by saying that the pair are no longer performing together as Steel Magnolia:

“It is our understanding that the duo is no longer performing together,” reports NPAC Executive Director Darrell Bryan. “We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause our patrons.”

The duo is made up of the engaged pair Joshua Scott Jones and Meghan Linsey. They first appeared on the country music scene as the winners of CMT’s “Can You Duet?” in 2009. While there has been no official confirmation of the pair breaking up either professionally or personally, Big Machine Records did tell The Boot that Steel Magnolia is no longer on their roster.

James Otto Filling In For Steel Magnolia’s Josh

Looks like Steel Magnolia’s Meghan Linsey won’t have to worry about being a solo act for much longer. James Otto has stepped up to the plate and will fill in for her duo partner, Joshua Scott Jones, while he spends time in rehab from alcohol and substance abuse treatment. James Otto tells GACtv.com that he was excited to be able to join Meghan on select dates of Reba McEntire’s “All The Woman I Am” tour:

“When I got the call from Meg, I thought it was a great idea,” he said. “I thought our voices would blend really well. I know that our musical tastes are very similar and we’re coming from the same place. Man, who wouldn’t want to be out on tour with Reba McEntire? That was one of those things that’s a no-brainer.”

James will perform with Meghan at the October 27th tour stop in Sioux City, Iowa and again at the October 28th concert in St. Louis.

BREAKING: Steel Magnolia Member Enters Rehab

Joshua Jones, one half of duo Steel Magnolia, has entered rehab to battle substance abuse tonight. In a message posted to fans on their official website, Josh announced the news to enter treatment for both alcohol and substance abuse. Good luck in your battle, Josh, and we wish you the best.

To all of our fans and to those whom it may concern, God has been on my heart to announce and make public that I have entered a rehabilitation and treatment facility to address issues related to alcohol and substance abuse. Hundreds of thousands of people in the world struggle with these battles daily, therefore I am sincerely grateful for all thoughts and prayers at this very poignant juncture in my life and career. I would also like to thank my family, friends, record label and management team for being so supportive and having an active hand in my recovery process. Thank you and God bless. –Joshua Scott Jones

Meg performed a few shows on her own this week before the news, citing an illness for Joshua’s absence from the performances and several show cancellations. The group is scheduled to perform tomorrow night in Tulsa at 8 pm.
