Nitty Gritty Dirt Band Return To The Ryman Auditorium For Special AmericanaFest Show On September 17th
Tickets on sale now; American Songwriter premieres the Dirt Band’s “Girl from the North County” music video from their recent release, Dirt Does Dylan
Nashville, TN – August 25, 2022 – On Saturday, September 17th, Grammy Award-winners and Americana mainstays Nitty Gritty Dirt Band will make their grand return to Nashville’s beloved Ryman Auditorium for a special, one-night-only performance. Set to be taped for a future PBS broadcast, the Dirt Band’s show lands on Saturday night of Nashville’s annual AmericanaFest, a lineup slot saved for the great trailblazers and torchbearers of Americana Music previously filled by the likes of Levon Helm’s Ramble at the Ryman and Nitty Gritty Dirt Band’s 50th Anniversary celebration. Fans can expect a career retrospective of tunes from the Dirt Band as well as songs from their recently-released album Dirt Does Dylan, and if past shows set a precedent, a special guest (or two, or more) could certainly make an appearance. Tickets for the 8 pm show on September 17th are on sale now and can be purchased at this link.
The Dirt Band have been on tour in support of their latest release, Dirt Does Dylan, a guest-laden take on Bob Dylan’s deep catalog of songs. The album garnered praise from the likes of Billboard, The Bluegrass Situation, and No Depression, who wrote, “So don’t think twice about adding this album to your record collection. It can nestle next to the Dirt Band classic Will the Circle Be Unbroken.”
