Press release: Steel Magnolia to perform following Nationwide Series race at Nashville

Nashville Superspeedway

LEBANON, Tenn. – Race fans at Nashville Superspeedway on Saturday, April 3 will have a good reason to remain on their feet following the conclusion of 300 miles of NASCAR Nationwide Series action. Big Machine Records recording artists Steel Magnolia will perform a post-race concert on the frontstretch as part of the Dillon Transportation Concert Series immediately following the race, scheduled to take the green flag at 3 p.m.

The concert is free to all April 3 NASCAR Nationwide Series race ticket holders.

As the season two winners of CMT’s Can You Duet?, Steel Magnolia (Meghan Linsey and Joshua Scott Jones) captured America's hearts with their dynamic harmony and music that is one part Country and two parts Southern Soul. The duo’s top-15 hit, "Keep On Lovin’ You," is the lead single from the Valentine’s Day Original Motion Picture Soundtrack and is the highest-charting debut single from a Country duo in over three years.

Steel Magnolia are multiple 2010 Academy of Country Music Award nominees (for overall Top Vocal Duo of the Year and Top New Vocal Duo) and have been featured nationally on Lopez Tonight, the The Early Show on CBS and Better TV. The duo has been acclaimed as one of Country Weekly’s "Who to Watch in 2010," People Country’s "Fan Wanted," and one of the top-five new Country artists that fans are "Most Excited About in 2010" according to a current GAC-TV poll.

Steel Magnolia’s self-titled debut EP is currently available on iTunes. For news, live performances and more information about Steel Magnolia visit
