Steel Magnolia May Be Splitting Up
Steel Magnolia canceled a concert in Greenville, TN, and rumors continue to run rampant about the relationship between Meghan Linsey and Joshua Scott Jones. The duo, who is also a couple in their personal life, was rumored to be in trouble when TriCities.com reported a potential breakup after the group pulled out of a March 24 concert.
“It is our understanding that the duo is no longer performing together,” Darrell Bryan, Executive Director of the Niswonger Performing Arts, said. “We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause our patrons.”
Steel Magnolia has also parted ways with their first and only record label, Big Machine Records. Jones completed his treatment program for undisclosed addictions in November to return by Linsey's side for the CMA Awards in November. Prior to that, Linsey handled many of the recent tour dates by herself or with the help of James Otto who filled in for Jones at the November 11th Reba concert at Evansville's Ford Center.
Two dates to watch in coming months are the tour date for Jan. 21 in Mount Laurel, N.J. listed on their website and the July 2012 wedding date the couple had apparently set last year. Time will tell if either will happen.
