Steel Magnolia has just released their remake of the Paul McCartney classic, “Maybe I’m Amazed,” to country radio. The song is featured on the country all-star compilation project, Let Us In Nashville – A Tribute to Linda McCartney which benefits the Women and Cancer Fund.
This summer the duo, comprised of Joshua Scott and Meghan Linsey, performed the song for an audience at the Grand Ole Opry.
“It feels like a lifetime ago when we cut it,” says Joshua. “So much has happened since then. In a lot of ways, ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ — which started as a favorite McCartney song — has become a soundtrack for Meg and I. It’s amazing how music holds people together, how it heals and makes a difference.”
Steel Magnolia also performed “Maybe I’m Amazed” last fall during Let Us In Nashville’s launch show at the Ryman Auditorium, to benefit the Women and Cancer Fund. The Let Us In project was founded in Linda McCartney’s memory (she died of cancer in 1998 at age 56) and is blessed by Sir Paul McCartney.
“The blessing of what we were both born to do is the way music can move people,” says Josh. “A song can move people, make them aware and do something. If it inspires people to look at other ways to treat cancer, to consider the alternatives … as well as what’s traditional … that’s a good thing.”
“It’s all scary stuff when you’re dealing with cancer,” adds Meghan. “To have options, to have knowledge when it’s someone you love going through it makes you feel stronger. I want there to be a cure, but I also want people going through it right now to have hope — and maybe feel connected to something a little larger. To me, that’s what songs like this, as well as the charity, can do.”
This fall Steel Magnolia will take part in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana’s first ever “All Star Country Vacation” Oct. 2-8. Along with performances from the duo, guests will enjoy all-access passes for the ultimate all-star weekend. Guests can participat in a multi-day event, spending the week with some of the nation’s favorite country singers from American Idol, CMT and The Voice. The “All Star Country Vacation” will be hosted by Broadway and country music star, Laura Bell Bundy.
