Actor/comedian and banjoist STEVE MARTIN made his GRAND OLE OPRY debut in front of a sold-out crowd on FRIDAY (5/29) in NASHVILLE. MARTIN was greeted with a standing ovation and performed songs from his first music album, "The Crow -- New Songs For The Five-String Banjo."
Longtime friend and producer of the album, JOHN McEUEN (of the NITTY GRITTY DIRT BAND), appeared on stage with STEVE, along with VINCE GILL, AMY GRANT, STUART DUNCAN, TIM O'BRIEN and more. Following their performance, the group was called back out for an encore and MARTIN led them in a performance of "Foggy Mountain Breakdown."
