Steve Martin Played Banjo with Rascal Flatts During the 2012 ACM Awards Show
Earl Scruggs passed away a few days ago, but, Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton made a celebration of the bluegrass legend’s life during the ACM Awards in Las Vegas.
The crowd stood and cheered for Scruggs, then McEntire introduced Rascal Flatts along with comedian and banjo player Steve Martin to sing their latest single, ‘Banjo.’
Gary LeVox started to sing, and fans fell right into the jam with his band mates. Steve Martin pretty much stayed in one place, but you can tell in the video, that he is happy to be picking with the famous trio from Nashville.
Audience members like Taylor Swift couldn’t help but dance along.
When it came time for the song’s solo, Rascal Flatts’ regular banjo player got the camera time.
‘Banjo’ is the lead single of Rascal Flatts’ new studio album ‘Changed,’ which hits stores on Tuesday. Martin is not featured on the recorded version of the song.
