Warner Music Nashville surprised the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band with a plaque prior to their rooftop performance at the label’s Pickin’ on the Patio series on Wednesday night (Sept. 28).

The certification marked the platinum certification of the 1986 album Twenty Years of Dirt, the platinum certification of the 1987 single “Fishin’ in the Dark,” and the gold certification of the 1989 album, More Great Dirt. Although the band has recorded for numerous record labels, they charted 14 Top 10 hits for Warner Bros. in the 1980s.

The concert album Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Friends – Circlin’ Back: Celebrating 50 Years will be released by Warner Music Nashville on Friday (Sept. 30). The set is available as a CD or as a CD/DVD combo.
