Celebrating their Golden (50th) Anniversary together, 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 1972 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. In 2014
"Fishin' In the Dark" was certified platinum for digital downloads
by the RIAA.
Today, NGDB (Jeff Hanna, Jimmie Fadden, Bob Carpenter, John
McEuen) continue their non-stop touring in their 51st year
together. Recent tour stops included Stagecoach, Hardly Strictly
Bluegrass Festival and many more. On September 14th, 2015 they
played to a Sold out Crowd at The Historic Ryman Auditorium with
some close friends to film a 50th Anniversary Special which began
airing on PBS starting March of 2016. The TV special earned a
2016 Emmy award for Special Event Coverage at the Mid South
Regional Emmy Awards.
