    Steve Martin.
    Many, years ago I went to see the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band in Aspen. The opening act was a then unknown comedian that turned out to be Steve Martin. Have never laughed so hard in my life. He is a true Renaissance man. Stand up comedian, actor, artist, author and now a bluegrass musician.

    I resign myself from the drawing, but wanted to echo Greg. I was thinking similarly. From X to the Knitters seems like a big leap, but the closer I listen the smaller the leap actually is.

    You gotta love CD giveaways! Kinda breaking away from the crossover artist to a crossover record instead. I never listened to The Supersuckers, but someone turned me on to their record “Must’ve Been High” and I have always loved it. Anyone out there who has never heard it, it really is worth your time. Check it out!
