Current Top 10 Bluegrass Artists

The Y! Music Playlist Blog

I love bluegrass music, but for some reason I don't find myself doing many bluegrass playlists here at the Y! Music Playlist blog. I want to rectify that. If you don't follow bluegrass you might not be aware of the latest banjo album by Steve Martin (yes, THAT Steve Martin) titled The Crow: New Songs For The Five String Banjo. Released this past May, the album is currently number three on the Bluegrass Radio Airplay chart as compiled by the Bluegrass Music Report. Since many of you probably don't follow bluegrass music, but are a fan of Steve Martin the comedian and actor, I saw an opportunity to introduce you to some fantastic music. The 10 songs in this playlist are by the artists who currently hold a top 10 album spot on the Bluegrass Radio Airplay chart for the week of September 18, 2009. And yes, it's true, Steve can play a smokin' banjo.
