Country sensations Steel Magnolia surprised two unsuspecting fans with American Country Awards tickets Monday night before their performance on the live, inaugural awards broadcast on FOX. During their red carpet walk, the stars decided to thank their fans by giving away two of their own tickets to the show.
Joshua Scott Jones and Meghan Linsey took a break from interviews on the red carpet and walked out to the pool of fans gathered just outside the limo drop. Whitney Boren and Dana Keele of Heber, Utah were the lucky recipients. As if primo seats to the ACAs weren't enough, Josh and Meghan invited Dana and Whitney to join them on the red carpet to sing the chorus of the smash, "Keep On Lovin' You," with the stars themselves on FOX's live national red carpet pre-show.
"It was so cool," said Whitney Boren of the experience. "Steel Magnolia –both of them – were so very nice to us. We were so excited and so nervous to go to the red carpet. Singing on TV was nerve-wracking, but Steel Magnolia were so nice that they made it so easy. We had a great time at the awards. The whole thing was way cool."
Steel Magnolia's brand new single, "Last Night Again," which the duo wrote with celebrated songwriter Hillary Lindsey ("Jesus Take the Wheel"), launched at Country Radio this week and is currently available at iTunes. Their self-titled debut album is set to be released on 1/11/11 and will be available everywhere, with pre-sale orders available now at Amazon.com.
