The Grand Ole Opry has booked a special performance by Steve Martin. The TV/film vet will support his bluegrass debut, The Crow: New Songs for the Five-String Banjo, with a show on May 30. Vince Gill and Amy Grant will also appear.
"The Opry audience will find out when Steve picks," Jon McEuen, The Crow's producer and a longtime friend of Martin's, said, "that he's a musician disguised as an actor."
"Of course we've all been fans of (Martin's) work on stage, television and in film for years," added the Opry's manager, Pete Fisher, "but we've also been very impressed with his musicianship."
