I have a Magnolia Bush, after planting it had very little shock, but all of a sudden the tips of the leaves are turning brown and goes down each side about 1.5 inches and it is most of the leaves. Can you tell me what might be going on?

I can't tell without inspecting the shrub but what you describe sounds more like a water stress problem than anything else. If the soil drains well and you're not watering more than once or twice a week, there may be a fungal infection. The best way to find out is to clip off an affected stem and take it into your local cooperative extension office for diagnosis. Here's the address: Frio County
Extension Office, 400 South Pecan, Pearsall, TX 78061, Phone: 830-334-0099.
