NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Steel Magnolia is going with a classical approach for their next gig. They'll be performing Paul McCartney's orchestral adaptation "Nova" with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra on September 7th. It will be the composition's North American debut. Meghan Linsey says playing with a 60 piece symphony orchestra is like "coloring with every crayon in the big box all at once." McCartney wrote the piece in honor of his late wife, Linda. The show will benefit children's cardiac research.
