Going strong for 50-years, the band is best known for its evergreen bestselling album  Will the Circle be Unbroken and for its gorgeous version of the song “Mr. Bojangles.” McEuen is one of the seminal figures who conceived and originated the fusion of folk, rock and country, a unique sound still hugely popular today. In addition to performing on tour with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and on dozens of their best selling albums (many of which went platinum and gold). McEuen also has a successful solo performing and recorder career.

Starting in the late 1970s, the Bellamy Brothers found success in country music as well, charting twenty Number One singles and more than fifty hits overall on the country charts. To date, they have released more than fifty albums, primarily on Curb Records. They have also enjoyed success in Continental Europe, with a compilation album topping the Norwegian charts in 2011 and with over two dozen hit songs that were released outside the US market.
