The First National Band was an American country group led by singer-songwriter Michael Nesmith, formerly of The Monkees. TFNB was an important early proponent of country rock, adapting an idiosyncratic, genre-busting aesthetic. The group consisted of Nesmith (guitar, vocals), Red Rhodes (steel slide guitar), John Ware (bass guitar), and John London (drums). The group had two successful singles, "Joanne" and "Silver Moon", peaking at and on the Billboard Hot 100, respectively.
The First National Band would, along with the Flying Burrito Brothers, set the template for much of the California country-rock sound that became hugely successful with bands like the Eagles in the '70s. Nesmith has recently put together a new First National Band for a series of concerts made up of songs from these three records. Next: Top 10 Monkees Songs. Filed Under: Mike Nesmith.

The original release of the First National Band albums was a strong period for Nesmith. The country-rock sound was a natural for him and it also made him a pioneer of this music, thanks to his stellar band from those days that included pedal steel player extraordinaire Red Rhodes. It took 50 years for Nesmith to return to this music, but the Redux is still as warm and beautiful as it ever was. The new group includes two of his sons, Christian and Jonathan, on guitars and vocals. Christian also mixed and mastered the album.
