The latest musician to grace the stage at the Grand Ole Opry? None other than country music star ... Steve Martin?

The Emmy Award-winning actor, comedian and writer will perform songs from his first music album The Crow – New Songs for the Five-String Banjo, which was released Tuesday. And he won't go it alone: Martin will be joined onstage by an all-star band including Vince Gill and Amy Grant.

But Martin's banjo picking is no fad – his good friend John McEuen (who produced the album) says of Martin and the upcoming gig, "The audience will find out he's a musician disguised as an actor."
