Rodney Dillard, the guitar playing Darling boy, joins us to talk about The Dillards, the Darling boys and much more. In part one we speak about how The Dillards got their start in the music business. In future episodes Rodney will talk about being on The Andy Griffith Show and many other topics.
Because of my association with The Andy Griffith Show, I have seen The Dillards perform many times and I’ve heard them take and answer many questions from audiences. I heard things in this interview I’d never heard before and it was a great pleasure being able to dive into the career of this influential bluegrass band.
How influential you might ask. The Dillards were inducted into the International Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame on October 1, 2009 and have directly or indirectly influenced artists such as The Eagles, The Byrds, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Dan Fogelberg, Linda Ronstadt, Elton John, Ricky Skaggs, and several other well known artist.
