Steve Martin to Make Opry Debut

Actor/comedian Steve Martin will make his Grand Ole Opry debut, Saturday, May 30, with a performance from his first music album, The Crow – New Songs for the Five-String Banjo.

Steve's good friend John McEuen of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, who produced the album, will appear on the show along with Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Stuart Duncan, Tim O’Brien and others. The artists will be performing select songs from Steve's album. The Crow is currently available exclusively through amazon.com but will be available at all music retailers later this year. “We’re excited to welcome Steve Martin to the Opry in May,” said Opry vice president and general manager Pete Fisher. “Of course we’ve all been fans of his work on stage, television, and in film for years, but we’ve also been very impressed with his musicianship."
