Have I told you all yet that I’m a Steel Magnolia fan? Oh… probably about a million times. I am so glad to see these two planning their summer tour. Just a few weeks ago, we didn’t know if they would ever be doing anything together again [Article]. We told you a while back about their canceled a number of shows, including one in Greeneville, Tenn., that I was going to go to, and we all learned that they signed with a new management team [Article].

What a difference a few weeks can make! The kids are getting ready to head out on their summer tour, which will begin on May 18, with Rochester, New York’s, Lilac Festival. In addition to their headlining festival shows, the kids will be opening for Reba and for Gretchen Wilson in the upcoming months.
We all know Meghan and Josh got engaged last June, and that shortly after that Josh went into rehab for help with an abuse problem. Meghan continued scheduled shows, and even used James Otto as a stand-in for Josh on the Reba tour. Their record label dropped them, and things were looking not so good. Now with the new management team, and hopefully a new album in the works – I couldn’t be happier for these two.
I spent a little time with them after their show at the Greene County fair a few years back, and they didn’t really need to tell me how much they enjoyed what they did on stage. It was so obvious. They work so well together, and are so talented. That was something that all of their fans noticed from their first appearance on the CMT show “Can You Duet.”
Did you see the ACM Awards on April 1? Meghan was even one of the top 10 Best Dressed Women at the event! She wore a white floor length gown with a feathered top. The strapless dress was accessorized with a matching colored clutch and headband.
Time to get on with my Saturday. Hope you all have a great weekend!
