The Dillards had a recurring role on the American situation comedy The Andy Griffith Show, playing a backwoods bluegrass family, the Darlings, with actor Denver Pyle playing the family patriarch. The show’s 30th anniversary briefly reunited the Dillards and led to a renewed interest in the band’s music.
