What's New

An Introduction to the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band OnLine.

Credits, or, Who to blame for this website. :)

February 2, 2005 - Happy Groundhog Day! The band's been nominated for a Grammy Award again this year, in the Best Country Instrumental Performance category for "Earl's Breakdown" from the Circle "Trilogy" album. More information on the other nominees at the Grammy website. The Grammy Awards will be televised on February 13th (Sunday) at 8:00 p.m. ET on CBS.

I've updated a few pages on the site, including the Awards nominations and the big Track Listing page. I've added a new section further down this page, where I'll list which pages have been updated recently.

August 9, 2004 - Dualtone has more information on Welcome to Woody Creek at their website, including sample clips from all the songs. I've also been sent a promo copy of the Merlefest Live 2003 CD, but haven't had a chance to listen to it yet.

June 3, 2004 - New studio album !! coming September 21st, 2004, as well as NGDB songs on two new compilation albums. The studio album is Welcome to Woody Creek, from Dualtone, who will be posting song samples on their website soon. The two compilation albums are The Unbroken Circle: The Musical Heritage Of The Carter Family, and Merlefest Live 2003. More details on those coming soon.
