Earl Scruggs Appears in New Movie

Earl Scruggs reunites with Faye Dunaway in Colored Eggs, a movie filming in Nashville. Scruggs and his son Randy appear in a wedding scene in the movie, which stars Dunaway, Lauren Holly and Tom Skerritt. The Scruggs boys perform “Old County Road,” a song Scruggs wrote the same day he appeared in the film. Scruggs and Dunaway crossed paths first when Scruggs and Lester Flatt provided the music for the 1969 movie Bonnie & Clyde starring Dunway and Warren Beatty. This week, Scruggs and Dunaway visited on the set of the new movie. “It was exciting to have the opportunity to be in a scene with her, as she is a great actress and a very gracious lady,” Scruggs said. Scruggs appears on CMT Most Wanted Live at 6 p.m. ET on Friday (Dec. 14). The banjo great will play “Jingle Bells.” 12/13/01
