The Country Rock group that is coming to perform at this year's West Texas Rehab Centers benefit summer show is Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. They'll perform on Thursday, September 8th, at the Abilene Convention Center.

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band ruled the country radio airwaves in the '80s and '90s. However, in the late '70s, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band was all over the Top-40 (Rock-N-Roll) charts. Their biggest hits to date were songs that crossed over multiple genres titled "Mr Bojangles" and "Fishing In The Dark" (as seen in the video below).

Then again there were the Top-40 hits that catapulted them onto the country music charts. Their version of "Mr. Bojangles" became the group's first hit in the 1970s. After that, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band became a household name.

Don't miss this golden opportunity to see the Nitty Gritty band live in Abilene at the West Texas Rehabilitation Center's 44th Annual Dinner show, which they are calling "A Night Of Country Rock With Nitty Gritty Dirt Band."
