HaleighT Caught Up With Steel Magnolia Before They Hit The Stage In Arkansas! Last night Steel Magnolia graced the stage as part of the Washington County Fair in Fayetteville, Ar! Meghan and Josh’s performance really impressed me…with his enthusiasm and energy on stage and her undeniably gifted voice, how could they not?! I was particularly impressed by “Edge Of Goodbye,” their cover of Tim McGraw and Faith Hill‘s “I Need You” and of course “Keep On Lovin’ You.” They gave us a taste of some of the new stuff they are working on in “You’re On My Mind” and “Whiskey Anthem,” then ended the show with “Jackson!” Before the show I had a chance to talk with them about their recent projects, including a new album and cancer benefit they are working with. Watch the video below to find out all the details! [youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYi5EQiLRUs]
The Steel Magnolia’s Music Video For Bulletproof Is Here. The Steel Magnolia’s newest single “Bulletproof” is a little ditty about someone who “acts” like they aren’t sad about a recent failed relationship. Even Meghan Linsey’s strong voice gives a little inclination that the person in these lyrics might not be so un-shakable. If you have to tell yourself you’re bulletproof, how bulletproof can you really be? Either way the song is great! Since the beginning Meghan and Joshua Scott Jones have had amazing chemistry together (“Keep On Lovin’ You“, “Last Night Again“) and this time is no different. I have a feeling the engaged duo has a chart climber on their hands! Tags: Bulletproof, Steel Magnolia, Steel Magnolia Videos

Steel Magnolia Aid “Cells Phones for Soldiers” Campaign. Steel Magnolia is helping U.S. troops by teaming up with Florida radio stations, CBS Radio Country WIRK/West Palm Beach and WQYK/Tampa to promote GM’s “Cell Phones for Soldiers” which is a non-profit campaign that will be running in Florida highschools local to the radio stations. The purpose of the campaign is to collect gently used cell phones in order to raise money to purchase sixty minute calling cards for troops who are serving abroad. The calling cards would enable military service personnel to connect with loved ones in the States. Students from various highschools will be competing with one another to see who can collect the most phones for the campaign. The school who wins will be rewarded with a free, live acoustic concert by Steel Magnolia!
Real World meets American Idol in CMT’s new talent competition: CMT’s Next Superstar. American Idol and Dancing With The Stars executives team up to bring a reality-show format to a talent competition in CMT’s upcoming series “CMT’s Next Superstar“.

The series will air beginning this April so stay tuned! One of the reasons this show stands out from the rest is that it’s the only show where the contestants take an active role in deciding who’s in the band,” noted executive producer, Simon Lythgoe. “Whereas contestants must sing in different genres on other shows, this is all about Country music. Our contestants will turn some world renowned songs from other genres like Pop or Motown, pour their soul into it and make it Country. Past reality/talent competitions on CMT have brought us stars like Miranda Lambert and Steel Magnolia… let’s see what this one can fish out!
