The comedian was awarded at the International Bluegrass Music Association Awards in Nashville on Thursday.

“I want to thank all the other nominees … for losing,” Martin jokingly said in his acceptance speech. “It really means a lot, sort of like winning two Oscars.”

“I’ve been playing banjo for 50 years, but performing in a band I’ve never done. The hardest part was talking and tuning.”

“Hey! @steepcanyon and I just won IBMA Entertainers of the Year!” Martin posted on his Twitter account.

The actor has been a banjo player for a long time and in 2009 he won a Grammy Award for his release, “The Crow: New Songs for the 5-String Banjo.”

Martin shared the honor with the Steep Canyon Rangers band, which is featured on his latest album.

“I’ve been playing banjo for 50 years, but performing in a band, I’ve done it for about two years,” the 66-year-old actor said after the awards. “I got very, very lucky with the Steep Canyon Rangers. We created a show from scratch, took it around and worked on it, worked very hard. I had to learn to become a band musician. The hardest part was talking and tuning.”
