Sing, Sing a Song Saturday

I started doing what I call Sing, Sing a Song Saturday.  I'm going to post one song on Saturdays that the boys or I like. 

The song may be part of a movie, a kid's video or just a song we like. I'll try and include why we like it and/or the history of the song/singer.

I heard that Steve Martin was in a band. You know the comedian, but have you ever heard his music? Awhile ago I heard that the band he is in is good. I kept forgetting to look it up though. The band is called The Steep Canyon Rangers.

Steve Martin isn't the sole man in this band. In fact he just steps in to collaborate every once in awhile. Because of his name they've stepped up in the charts. In 2011 the band released its first collaborative record with Steve Martin called Rare Bird Alert. It was #1 on Billboard’s Bluegrass Chart and at #43 on the Billboard Top 200. In 2010, the latest solo record from Steep Canyon Rangers, ”Deep In The Shade”, remained in the Bluegrass Top 10 on Billboard for 18 weeks. They are on tour through festivals much of the time.

The genre is bluegrass. I just love the sound of a banjo in music. It reminds me of when we went to Wyoming a few years after we got married. There was only one station during our 4 hour drive Thermopolis, Wyoming; all it played was bluegrass. I never knew I liked that type of music until that day.

I like when any comedian can make fun of themselves. Steve Martin is a known Agnostic. The Steep Canyon Rangers wrote a song called Atheists Don't Have No Songs.

I'm not sure I've ever really heard bluegrass, but it was kind of cool. My boys were listening over my shoulder and they seemed to like it.

I guess it shouldn't surprise me that he's got talent like that. Seems like a lot of actors sing, dance, or play an instrument well. Still, I was surprised. That's cool.
