Meghan Linsey, one half of Steel Magnolia, just put out a cover song of Counting Stars by OneRepublic. She has a new album coming out this year and her former duet partner now has his new single out.
Check this funky track out from Joshua Scott Jones.
Honk (If You’re Tonky) – Joshua Scott Jones
This is a pretty bold choice for a first solo single. I guess if you want to make an impact you have to come out with something different. There is certainly nothing like this on country radio right now.
And I think it’s pretty cool. It really reminds me of something Marty Stuart or Travis Tritt would put out. There is plenty of energy, grit and edge. It’s the kind of song you might hear if you’re at an old time rock concert.
I don’t know how the country audience will receive this one. I think they’re going to like it.
It was evident when Steel Magnolia was on the charts that both Joshua and Meghan were talented and now that they’re releasing solo music it’s evident again that they have something special. This record from Joshua is really cool and I hope it gets attention over the next couple months.
