James Otto Will Fill In For Steel Magnolia’s Joshua Scott Jones [VIDEO]
As they say in showbiz the show must go on and that’s exactly what will happen for Steel Magnolia’s Meghan Linsey, but not without help from singer James Otto. Let me explain, a few weeks ago Meghan told fans that her duo partner Joshua Scott Jones would enter rehab to work on getting healthy. Of course that’s a good thing but Steel Magnolia is part of the Reba tour which obviously is a big opportunity for Steel Magnolia and of course Meghan. Here is where James Otto comes in; James will fill in for Josh on the tour. This is a great choice because his voice will blend wonderfully with Meghan’s. An announcement was made on the Steel Magnolia website
"I want to let you all know that as of now all Steel Magnolia scheduled shows will be happening, including the Reba tour,” "Obviously with Josh taking this time to get healthy he will not be with us, but we will still playing the same hits you've heard at radio and putting on an amazing live show that might even feature some surprises! As hard as this time has been, I am excited to get out there and see you all. I cannot thank the fans enough for your continued love and support." –Meghan Linsey.
For James it was a no brainer to accept an invitation to open for Reba. By the way, you may remember James and Meghan sang together at a WYRK acoustic show and they really did sound great together.
