Nitty Gritty Dirt Band Interview [PART TWO] : Story of ‘Will The Circle Be Unbroken’
The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band has enjoyed success in Folk, Rock, Pop, Country, Bluegrass, Americana and Country Music since 1966. Impressively, the band is still active recording, touring, and selling records.
Recently, their 1987 classic ‘Fishin’ In The Dark’ was issued a gold certification for selling over 500,000 downloads and their shows continue to pack in fans of all ages. John McEuen of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band recently talked with us about their musical milestone ‘Will The Circle Be Unbroken.’ This Grammy winning project united Country Music’s earliest pioneers with the ‘hip’ California Folk/Rock group to create music that made an ever-lasting impression, by breaking cultural stereotypes and uniting for the common good of the American music lover.
