Blunt said to "Early Show" co-anchor Erica Hill, "I'd like on confirm on the program, I'm playing the wedding."

Hill said, "Are you really?"

Blunt replied, "No, I'm not."

Hill asked, "Would you write a new song for something like that?"

Blunt laughed and said, "It's not going to happen. I do funerals."
