Since the documentary aired the legendary album Will The Circle Be Unbroken went to #1 on Amazon on three country subsets! And the #18 top-selling country album!
It was John’s instigation, that NGDB recorded Will the Circle Be Unbroken over six days in August 1971, with icons of Bluegrass and Country: Roy Acuff, Doc Watson, Merle Travis, Jimmy Martin, Earl Scruggs, Vassar Clements, and Maybelle Carter. Join John and friends as they share the hits, humor and stories behind this magic time when three generations came together. Will The Circle Be Unbroken has been inducted in the The Library of Congress as one America’s most important recordings and is in the Grammy Hall of Fame. The benchmark record is relevant to this day and an Amazon top-20 still! In 1977 John and the Dirt Band were proud to be the first American band to play in Russia.
