Nitty Gritty Dirt Band marks 50 years with concert album

Famous for decades of music ranging from "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" to "Fishin' in the Dark," The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band closed out Warner Music Nashville's summer concert series Pickin’ on the Patio this week. The group will mark its 50th anniversary again Friday with the release of "Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Friends - Circlin’ Back: Celebrating 50 Years" concert album. The project includes special guests John Prine, Vince Gill and Rodney Crowell and was recorded at Ryman Auditorium last year. The concert was also filmed for a television special that aired in the spring.
