Nashville - Steve Martin and The Steep Canyon Rangers turned the International Bluegrass Music Association Awards into funny business.

Martin and his group of crack bluegrassers took entertainer of the year, Thursday night's top award at The Ryman Auditorium while supergroup The Boxcars took home a leading four awards.

Martin, best known as a comedian and writer, is also an accomplished banjo picker who's taken the medium to a wider audience with two albums of mostly original music and a high-profile series of performances. Entertainer of the year goes to the act that does the best job representing the genre.

The Boxcars took home four awards, including emerging artist of the year and instrumental group of the year. Three other acts won two awards apiece.
