A Little Bit Country on the Lower East Side

January 7th, 2011

You never know what can happen when you set foot in a karaoke place, which is what Joshua Scott Jones discovered several years ago in Nashville, when he met Meghan Linsey. Eventually they began dating and performing together as Steel Magnolia. The duo appeared on—and won—the second season of Can You Duet, which was a springboard to further success. Their debut single, “Keep On Lovin’ You,” became a Top 40 country single and they released a self-titled EP last year. But this year a self-titled LP comes out next Tuesday and Steel Magnolia (above, doing “Keep On Lovin’ You”) plays The Bowery Ballroom on Monday night.
