ACM Awards 2012: Earl Scruggs tribute from Steve Martin, Rascal FlattsAdd to Favorites | The 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards
If you were unaware, Martin has been picking a banjo for years - he even released an album which you should totally check out if you are a fan of banjo music. It's quite good. The whole performance was a wonderful tribute to the late Scruggs, who is known as having revolutionized banjo playing by popularizing the three-finger picking method that became known as the "Scruggs picking style."
We'll post video of the ACM Awards performance as soon as we can, but for now, here's a great video of Scruggs performing with Steve Martin on "The Late Show" from 2006.
