Rare Bird Alert – Steve Martin, Paul McCartney & Banjos?

I watched Steve Martin on The Colbert Report the other day, as Steve promoted his second “bluegrass” album. They performed on Colbert’s show and the song was pretty good…but nothing that grabbed my attention enough to run to Amazon and buy the CD.

However, I just watched Steve Martin on David Letterman. Steve told Dave a story about emailing Paul McCartney asking him to sing a song on his new album and Paul agreed (as did the Dixie Chicks). That caught my attention a little more, but it wasn’t until Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers (from NC) sang an A capella song “Atheists Don’t Have No Songs” that made me finally go and buy the album. It gets here in a few days and I’ll give my opinion on the rest after I get a chance to hear the whole thing.
