Tonight’s the night. ACM Vocal Group of the Year nominees Rascal Flatts will make their guest cameo appearance on the CBS television drama, CSI: Crime Scene. The show airs tonight (3/4) at 8:00 p.m. CT on CBS.
In other small screen news, Faith Hill will show off her rock vocal chops with a performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction later this month. It’s not exactly new territory for the country superstar; one of her first single releases back in 1994 was a cover of the Janis Joplin classic, “Piece of My Heart.” At the time, Hill owned up to the fact that she’d never heard the song before she headed into the studio to record it.
At the Hall of Fame induction ceremony, Hill will join Chris Isaak, Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael (Maroon 5), Train’s Pat Monahan, Ronnie Spector, Fefe Dobson, Eric Burdon and Peter Wolf on the prestigious list of performers. The induction ceremony – which will honor ABBA, Genesis, Jimmy Cliff and more – takes place March 15 in New York and will air live on Fuse TV at 7:30 p.m. CT.
And on the flip side of that same coin, TV/film star Steve Martin will be hitting the concert trail this spring with the Steep Canyon Rangers in support of his Grammy-winning album, The Crow: New Songs for the Five-String Banjo. The tour kicks off April 19 in Detroit and will run into October. The Crow spent 30 weeks atop the Billboard Bluegrass Album charts which made it the #1 Bluegrass Album for 2009 and is currently #2, this week, after 52 weeks on the chart.
