As one-half of the successful country duo Steel Magnolia, Joshua Scott Jones is no stranger to hit songs. After winning CMT’s Can You Duet, Josh and his duo partner Meghan Linsey were thrust into the limelight and it wasn’t long before they were a staple in the country community. Often compared to Johnny and June, the pair were on top of their game with a hit record, 4 singles in the Top 30 and a healthy number of nominations for music’s top honors. In 2013, the duo began to focus on individual projects and Jones, who wrote the majority of the acts first record, got to work penning new music for his solo record. When he hit the studio, the singer’s story began to tell itself and in no time the record was completed. In a genre where fast trucks and fishing holes are permanent fixtures in country lyrics, Jones delivers something much more personal. On his debut album titled The Healing, which will drop in 2014, the singer opens up and tells a story that begs to be heard. Josh’s catchy lead single “Honk (If You’re Tonky)” launched worldwide in January and was instantly a fan favorite on radio, including SIRIUS XM’s The Highway. With a full-length record, a new music video and a tour coming in the next few months, Josh is looking forward to reconnecting with his country fans in a big way in the new year. Having already been in the spotlight once, there’s no limit to where this country-crooning rocker will go in 2014.
