The closer we get to March, the more excited I was getting about a show at Niswonger Performing Arts Center in Greeneville, Tenn. I have tickets! Very good tickets! Tickets for seats practically on the stage! The artists I was going to see – none other than Steel Magnolia. I’ve been a fan of Meghan and Josh since I first saw them on CMT’s “Can You Duet.”
I have seen the kids before, when the did a show at the Greene County Fair, also in Greeneville, Tenn., a few years ago. I loved their show! So much energy, great harmony, a little comedy between the artists. Just a well thought-out, and very well performed, entertaining show. You can read that show review here.
Darrell Bryan, Executive Director of the Niswonger Performing Arts Center, announced this morning that the concert of Steel Magnolia set for March 24 at NPAC has been cancelled. “It is our understanding,” said Bryan, “that the duo is no longer performing together.”
“We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause our patrons,” concluded Bryan.
There was more – but that was the important part. The show I’ve been waiting for isn’t going to happen. To make matters worse, @steelmagnolia11 is not tweeting, their last tweet was sent out a week ago. There are only two shows listed on their tour schedule, and that page starts out with “Event schedule, times and lineup tentative and subject to change without notice.”
Apparently there are a lot of rumors going around about this awesome duo, and none of the rumors I’ve heard so far are good. So what’s going on? Are Josh and Meghan still a duo? Are Josh and Meghan still a couple? Are Josh and Meghan still with Big Machine Records? I think it’s time we hear from Steel Magnolia, or from their label. Let the fans know what’s going on with these two great kids, who also happen to be great entertainers. Let’s have a press release from someone who knows – and put an end to the rumors.
