The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band is saying goodbye to the road, with their upcoming All the Good Times Tour. This will be your last chance to see them live in Houston.

 

Over the course of six decades, the three-time Grammy-winning band has brought audiences classics including “Mr. Bojangles,” “Fishin’ in the Dark” and “An American Dream,” driving the popularity of Americana or roots music. In 1984, the group’s “Long Hard Road” reached No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs chart, followed another chart-topper, “Modern Day Romance,” in 1985 as well as 1987’s “Fishin’ in the Dark,” which in recent years has been covered by artists including Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley.

The group’s first gig was 1966 in Southern California, with their breakthrough coming in 1970 with “Mr. Bojangles.” In 1972, they released the first of three "Will the Circle Be Unbroken" records, working with pre-eminent names in bluegrass, country and folk.
