Joshua Scott Jones of Steel Magnolia has entered a rehabilitation facility to deal with alcohol and substance abuse. He posted the following message on the duo's website:

To all of our fans and to those whom it may concern, God has been on my heart to announce and make public that I have entered a rehabilitation and treatment facility to address issues related to alcohol and substance abuse. Hundreds of thousands of people in the world struggle with these battles daily, therefore I am sincerely grateful for all thoughts and prayers at this very poignant juncture in my life and career. I would also like to thank my family, friends, record label and management team for being so supportive and having an active hand in my recovery process. Thank you and God bless. —Joshua Scott Jones

It's unclear when Josh—who with fiancée Meghan Linsey comprises Steel Magnolia—will return to the stage. The duo, who shared their engagement with Country Weekly in June, is scheduled to join Reba McEntire's All The Women I Am Tour on Oct. 6 in Moline, Ill.
