The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band performed a sold-out show, "Nitty Gritty Dirt Band Celebrating 50 Years," at the Ryman Auditorium on Monday night (Sept. 14). Taped for a PBS special to be aired early next year, the iconic band invited former band members and special guests, including Vince Gill, Alison Krauss and Jackson Browne, to the stage to help them celebrate their half-century as a group.
Fifty years ago, in 1966, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band was founded in Long Beach, Calif., and, despite their numerous lineup changes throughout the years, they've had a successful half-century-long career -- and have no plans to slow down anytime soon.
