Will the Circle Be Unbroken: Volume Two (also Circle II) is a 1989 album by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Circle II features largely acoustic, bluegrass music instrumentation with a line-up of contemporary country music artists that includes Johnny Cash, Rosanne Cash, Emmylou Harris, Michael Martin Murphey and Ricky Skaggs
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band was a young country-rock band with a hippie look. Acuff described them as "a bunch of long-haired West Coast boys. The other players were much older and more famous from the forties, fifties and sixties, primarily as old-time country and bluegrass players. Originally appearing in 1972 as a three LP album and three-cassette tape offering, Will the Circle Be Unbroken was remastered and re-released in 2002 as a two compact disc set. Much later, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band recorded two subsequent albums, Will the Circle Be Unbroken: Volume Two and Will the Circle Be Unbroken, Volume III, in an attempt to repeat the process with other historically significant musicians. Volume Two won the Country Music Association's 1989 Album of the Year as well as three Grammys.
The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band was founded in 1969 in Long Beach, Calif. by Jeff Hanna and Bruce Kunkel. Long Beach wasn't exactly a hot bed of country culture, but the West was seeing an influx of country and roots music by way of bands such as The Byrds and The Flying Burrito Brothers. In 1970, the band recorded the Jerry Jeff Walker-penned "Mr. Bojangles. The stripped-down story song was a departure from the heavily-produced music that ruled Music City in the late 1960s. The boys planned to continue in that vein. The album encouraged younger generations to look to the past for inspiration and collaborate across generations and genres. Will the Circle Be Unbroken proved that whether songs are five years old or 100 years old, there will always be an audience for great music.

Twenty-eight years before O Brother, Where Art Thou?, West Coast country-rockers the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band brought old-school country and bluegrass to the modern-day mainstream by cutting a double album with first-gen country heroes (Roy Acuff, Maybelle Carter) and bluegrass originators (Jimmy Martin, Earl Scruggs). Tackling country classics mostly from the catalogs of the participants, the record bridges generations with its honest, unadorned acoustic feel and a torrent of timeless American tunes.
