Wedding Bells to Ring for Steel Magnolia
Meghan Linsey and Joshua Scott Jones set summer wedding date. Maybe.
Mark July 10, 2012, on your calendar. That’s when Steel Magnolia’s Joshua Scott Jones and Meghan Linsey are getting married. Maybe.
“I’d like to do it next year on my birthday, July 10,” Joshua tells CountryWeekly.com while in Los Angeles to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! tonight (June 27).
While Meghan is sure about wanting to marry her longtime beau and singing partner, she’s not so sold on the date yet. “We were thinking about it. We’re going to see,” she says. “See, he just thinks July 10 because of his birthday and I’m going, ‘Well, do you know if it’s a Saturday? Is it a Tuesday?’ He doesn’t think about those things.”
Meghan wears a beautiful antique engagement ring that belonged to Joshua’s great grandmother, but it’s on her middle finger of her left hand instead of the usual ring finger because it’s too big.
“We’re technically engaged,” she says, before adding, “He’s waited so long that he’s going to have to re-ask.”
Joshua gave her the ring four-and-a-half years ago, after the couple had dated for a year and long before they won the second season of Can You Duet. “We’re both bad procrastinators,” Joshua says. “We’re terrible,” chimes in Meghan. “We went to Vegas for the ACMs and we went to dinner and we’re sitting there with our friends. We’re like, ‘We should just go get married. Why not?’”
“And we ate too much,” Joshua says. “And we were tired,” says Meghan, finishing his sentence. “So we feel like we’re married because we’re too tired to get married. It’s like an old couple or something.”
