Steve Martin will make his Grand Ole Opry debut May 30 with a performance from his first music album, The Crow, New Songs for the Five-String Banjo. Life-long friend John McEuen, who produced the album and assembled an all-star cast to record with Martin, 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 the The Crow. The album is currently available exclusively through Amazon.com but will be available at all music retailers later this year.
McEuen and Martin began their friendship as teenagers in Orange County, California, working at Disneyland’s Magic Shop, and have worked together over the years on various projects. “This will be a lifelong memory highpoint—one of just how far a dream can go,” McEuen said. “Two kids from Orange County at the Opry! Well, when Steve picks, fans will see how much it means to him to bring his music to the heart of country music. The audience will find out he’s a musician disguised as an actor.”
