Steel Magnolia fans will be excited to hear that the duo's long-anticipated self-titled debut album is now available for pre-sale, meaning we really are close to an actual release date. After being delayed from a planned Sept. 2010 release, the album, already chock-full of hit singles, is scheduled to hit shelves on Jan. 11, 2011. 

To further entice fans, the band is offering several special pre-order packages, which combine the album with T-shirts, tote bags and other special merchandise. Anyone who orders before Dec. 15 will also receive a special holiday card signed by Steel Magnolia.

Lastly, all orders come with an immediate download of the band's current single, 'Last Night Again,' which joins previous singles 'Keep On Lovin' You' and 'Just By Being You (Halo and Wings)' among the albums 12 tracks.
