Fresh off their 18 month 50th Anniversary Tour, 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)
continue their non-stop touring in their 52nd year together. Three
musical powerhouses joining them on stage in 2018 are Jaime
Hanna, Jim Photoglo and Ross Holmes. Recent tour stops have
included Stagecoach, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival and many
more. Their recent sold out concert filmed and recorded live for
the 50th Anniversary at The Historic Ryman Auditorium is an
Emmy Award winning PBS Pledge Special.
