Actor/comedian/writer Steve Martin made his Grand Ole Opry debut Saturday night in front of a sold-out crowd. He was greeted with a standing ovation before performing songs from his first music album, The Crow: New Songs for the Five-String Banjo.

Friend John McEuen (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), who produced the album and assembled an all-star cast to record with Martin, appeared on the show along with Vince Gill, Amy Grant, Stuart Duncan, and Tim O’Brien, ending with an encore of “Foggy Mountain Breakdown.”
