For five decades, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band has remained one of the most iconic names in American music.

Nitty Gritty Dirt BandWith one foot planted in the traditions of country-folk and the other pointing toward something new and unexpected, the group continues to tour and release music, influencing multiple generations of audiences and artists along the way. Tomorrow, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band will release a 21-track greatest hits album titled Fishin’ in the Dark (Rhino Records). The collection includes the band’s biggest hits on both country and pop radio (“Mr. Bojangles,” “Dance Little Jean,” “Fishin’ in the Dark,” and more), along with many fan-favorites (“Cadillac Ranch” and “Ripplin’ Waters”).

In September 2015, the band celebrated 50 years of music with a sold-out show at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. NGDB was joined onstage by John Prine, Sam Bush, Vince Gill, Jerry Jeff Walker, Alison Krauss, Rodney Crowell, Byron House, Jerry Douglas, Jackson Browne, and longtime Dirt Band member Jimmy Ibbotson. In 2016, the band released a live recording (cd/dvd combo) of this night titled Circlin’ Back: Celebrating 50 Years. The Ryman show, which was also recorded for PBS won a Midsouth Regional EMMY® for Special Event Coverage at the 31st annual award ceremony in Nashville in January 2017.

Fishin’ in the Dark is available at and Amazon. A note from the band on the back cover of the CD reads, “This collection represents some of our proudest musical moments over the past 5 decades… Hope you’ve enjoyed the ride nearly as much as we have… And to our fans… You “Dirt Heads” out there… Thanks for making it all possible!!”
