Steel Magnolia has been having some fun covering both hit pop and country songs in their video blog, ‘Steeling the Covers.’ Originally, the duo had planned to cover the No. 1 pop song each week but since songs sometimes spend multiple weeks at the top of the charts, they branched out to current country hits like Kenny Chesney’s “You and Tequila” and Blake Shelton’s “Honey Bee.” They admit that covering a fellow country artist’s song can be a little strange.
“At first you realize, ‘Well, we’re kind of in this family now. We’ve gotta be careful about it.’ But it’s still weird to us, cause we’re new,” Joshua Jones said. “So we don’t want to look like we’re trying to ride somebody’s coat tails or something like that by ripping off their song and just playing it. But to us, man, we’re just big fans.”
