Steve Martin will release his second bluegrass album in the US in March.

The actor said he wrote some of the new record, Rare Bird Alert, on the set of his upcoming film The Big Year.

The 13 track album features impressive guest stars, with Sir Paul McCartney singing one song and the Dixie Chicks performing another.

Steve, 65, also penned a few of the new tracks while touring with the Steep Canyon Rangers, a bluegrass quintet who back him on the latest album.

Rare Bird Alert will be out March 15. Steve and his band will support the album with a national tour of the States beginning in May.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

You long to have some fun, but responsibilities require your attention. Set some reasonable goals and then reward yourself when you finish them in the allotted time. Having incentives will keep you focused and productive. Fortunately, a loved one is offering lots of support. Lean on this friend when you feel discouraged. With their encouragement, you'll be able to finish work in record time. After hours, you'll be able to share a good meal together. Do your best to balance work with play.More
