Meghan Linsey Steel Magnolia -

Steel Magnolia will join Reba on her All The Women I Am Tour beginning this Thursday in Moline, Illinois. For Meghan Linsey it’s exciting because besides Reba, they’ll be on the tour with The Band Perry and Edens Edge, which means at least four other females on the road. And since she’s usually the only female among an all-male band and crew Meghan says, “That would be nice. I’m definitely used to being around lots of guys all the time. I love the girls from Eden’s Edge and hung out with Kimberly from Band Perry a couple of times so it’ll be cool to be around some estrogen, some other ladies.”

Last week it was reported that Joshua Scott Jones was entering rehab for alcohol and substance abuse, read more HERE. Meg followed up with an official announcement stating that she would head out on Reba’s tour as originally planned and represent Steel Magnolia.

Hey guys,

I just want to let you all know that as of now all Steel Magnolia scheduled shows will be happening, including the REBA tour. Obviously with Josh taking this time to get healthy he will not be with us, but we will still the playing the same hits you’ve heard at radio and putting on an amazing live show that might even feature some surprises! As hard as this time has been, I am excited to get out there and see you all. I cannot thank the fans enough for your continued love and support.

xo, MEG

Joshua Scott Jones Steel Magnolia -

Joshua Scott Jones, one half of duo Steel Magnolia, made a formal statement today on the duo’s official website regarding his admission into a rehabilitation treatment center for issues with alcohol and substance abuse.  Steel Magnolia is currently scheduled to embark on Reba’s All The Women I Am Tour, however no official word at this time has been issued regarding their upcoming performances.

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
