Classic theme, modern touch: Steve Martin and Edie Brickell made their joint TV debut last night, performing "When You Get to Asheville" with the Steep Canyon Rangers on the Late Show With David Letterman. It's a song about leaving that also mentions e-mail, putting a latter-day spin on a timeless subject. Martin deftly plucked out notes on banjo while Brickell sang in her airy voice, backed by mournful swells of strings from the Steep Canyon Rangers. The song comes from Martin and Brickell's new LP, Love Has Come for You, which Rounder released this week.
