Steel Magnolia is spending the summer out on the road and will join Reba on tour this fall. With things going well in their career, they are looking for ways to give back. Joshua Scott Jones knows he wants to do something to help someone else achieve their dreams or at the very least, let another person know their worth.
“I want to find a way to take people in who haven’t had a shot at life and have been beat down their whole lives, and I want to unlock their potential and give ‘em really hand and foot service and then get ‘em in programs,”Joshua said. “Whether it’s homeless people or people with mental disabilities and just letting them know that they’re worthy and understand everybody has gifts and been given blessings, but you’ve just got to understand that and be shown love.”
Joshua himself has been on the receiving end of the kind of services he wants to be able to provide, making it even more important to him to pay it forward. “When I was 19, I was shown that kind of same thing and it really changed my direction and my thinking and it really helped me out,” he said.
Steel Magnolia will release their new single, “Bulletproof,” next month, but the pair gave fans a preview of it when they performed it recently on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel LIVE. The song is a woman’s anthem, discovered by Meghan Linsey. “I felt like it was really important because we had all these different elements on our record and I wanted to give women a song,” she said. “It is a women’s anthem. It’s so unique, so rocking and you just wanna play it in your car and drive. And that’s what I was doing with the song when I had it on a comp, listening to it in my car. I looked down and I was speeding and I’m like jamming out to the song. I was like, ‘This has to go on the record,’ if it makes you feel that much.”
“Bulletproof” will hit radio on August 1. In the meantime, check out Steel Magnolia’s latest video, “Last Night Again,” HERE.
