Earl Scruggs tribute at IBMA

Steve Martin introduced the segment, which served as the show’s finale, complete with dozens of top banjo pickers throwing down their best Foggy Mountain Breakdown.

    OMG! Steve was really tore up saying those words! How SUITABLE!

  • Exceptional. Just exceptional. Very fitting and suitable tribute to Mr. Earl Scruggs. I can’t think of a better person than Steve Martin for this.
