See John McEuen on Ken Burns PBS
Special Country Music. The eight (8) two (2) hour episodes
highlights Will The Circle Be Unbroken in episode 6 with a 30 minute
segment in the program of John and the other members of NGDB appearing.
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.
