The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band continues to leave its mark on American country rock music with the ground-breaking album Will The Circle Be Unbroken. Beloved by fans of folk-pop and country-rock, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band was a major influence on such bands as the Eagles and Alabama. Members Jeff Hanna, Jimmie Fadden, Bob Carpenter and John McEuen continue this great legacy with critically-acclaimed albums and sold-out tours nationwide.
The iconic and profoundly influential Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, often cited as a catalyst for an entire movement in Country Rock and American Roots Music, continues to add to their legendary status. With multi-platinum and gold records, strings of top ten hits such as "Fishin' In The Dark" and "Mr. Bojangles", multiple Grammy, IBMA, CMA Awards and nominations, the band's accolades continue to accumulate. Their groundbreaking "Will The Circle Be Unbroken" album has been inducted into the U.S. Library of Congress as well as the Grammy Hall of Fame. NGDB’s recording of "Mr. Bojangles" was also inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2010.
