Steve Martin at The Woods Amphitheater

Last Friday, I got to check something off of my bucket list – something I didn’t even realize was on it until it happened.

Steve Martin came to Nashville to play his banjo and crack us all up.  I have loved this man since I was a little girl and chose “Father of the Bride” to rent at the video store.  In those movies, he reminds me SO MUCH of my grandpa (anyone who knows Pi can attest to this), and his sense of humor in general just tickles me to death.  I even named a capybara that my friend adopted in my name after him.  The fact that he plays the banjo – and is REALLY, really good – is just the hilarious, random icing on the cake.  My in-laws were in town for the weekend and very generously got us tickets.  We all had a blast!

(Tuning his banjo.  Evidently, you have to do that every time the weather changes.  Evidently, the weather in Nashville changes every 3 minutes.)

“Now, this is a song….well, that pretty much says it.”

Steve and his “Eight hundred-dollar set list.”

He even had his adorable doggie run onstage for a treat.

The band he’s touring with, The Steep Canyon Rangers, was really amazing.  The fiddler in particular was inSANE.  

Waving goodbye to the crowd.  Please don’t go, Steve!

I regret resisting the temptation to yell out a request for the Thermos Song.  But it was such a great night.  I’m so glad we went!!!
