Steel Magnolia Address Questions About Their Future
Steel Magnolia, the award-winning duo made up of Meghan Linsey and Joshua Scott Jones, shocked and saddened fans when they went their separate ways. But while the pair won't confirm whether they will make music together again, they say they still have plenty to be excited about.
Linsey and Jones, who previously hinted they would be working on solo projects, shared their recent updates on their Steel Magnolia Facebook page.
"As you may have heard on the radio, we have decided to embark on solo projects this year!" they write. "We have had such an incredible ride thus far and are so grateful for the time we had together. We are both so excited about this new chapter and we hope that you will continue on this journey with us. We fully support one another's new projects and hope you will too!"
The pair, who were once also romantically linked, parted with their label, Big Machine Records, after their self-titled freshman album. But while they shot to stardom after winning Season 2 of the CMT show, 'Can You Duet,' they say they are relying on their fans as they pursue their own endeavors.
"You are the reason for Steel Magnolia's success from CMT to stadiums and we cannot thank you enough!" they continue. "We really appreciate and love each and every one of you! We know we wouldn't be able to embark on these new projects without your support."
Linsey released a cover of OneRepublic's 'Counting Stars,' in advance of her solo EP, which will be available later this year.
Still, the singers have yet to completely rule out a reunion together someday.
“I’m not saying we’ll never make another record because you never know,” Linsey says. ”We were together personally for a long time, almost six years, and we did break up. We basically took some time to ourselves, reconvened, decided we could tour together, decided to go ahead and book the dates, and then in the meantime, we started working on our solo projects.”
