LOS ANGELES Steve Martin and his banjo are taking on the U.S. Capitol on July 4.
The 65-year-old entertainer is set to perform from the Capitols west lawn during the annual A Capitol Fourth concert this year. Josh Groban, Little Richard, Glee star Matthew Morrison, American Idol winner Jordin Sparks and Broadway star Kelli OHara also share the bill.
Martin said his participation in the patriotic event inspired him to write a new song called Me & Paul Revere, which talks about Reveres infamous ride from his horses perspective. Martin will play the tune with his band, The Steep Canyon Rangers.
Jimmy Smits will host the Fourth of July concert, which will be broadcast on PBS, National Public Radio and the American Forces Network.
