Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers' latest Rebel Records CD, Another Day From Life, continues to hold the attention of radio programmers and fans across the world. This month, the album has climbed to #14 on Bluegrass Unlimited's Top 15 Albums chart and is tied for the #10 spot on SiriusXM Bluegrass Junction's Most Played Albums chart! "Now The Summer's Gone" spent two weeks at #1 on the Bluegrass Today Weekly Songs chart and jumped up to #21 on BU's Top 30 Songs chart. Our latest single, "Another Day From Life" made its debut at #30 on the BU chart and is #7 on SiriusXM Bluegrass Junction's Most Played Tracks chart.
mate of the late Gerald Evans, Jr. (who served for years alongside Joe in the fabled Traditional Grass), Sparks keeps it close to home, with an expressive voice and deep roots in the same scene that nurtured Joe and the other veteran Radio Ramblers.
Similarly, while newest member Randy Barnes (bass) has a stellar resume that includes stints with Lou Reid, Larry Stephenson, New Found Road and Josh Williams, he’s a product of the nearby central Kentucky “school of bluegrass” that constitutes the third leg of the “OKI” (Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana) region whose musical legacy the Radio Ramblers uphold.
Another Day From Life ranges broadly, pulling in a western swing staple (“Miss Molly”), a Bill Gaither gospel song, a classic country hit from Porter Wagoner and even one from Americana singer-songwriter hero Darrell Scott. But no matter the source, Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers always put their distinctive stamp on a song, making it at once their own and a part of the chain of tradition that lies at the heart of bluegrass.
Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers have not let grass grow under their feet with the release of Another Day From Life and have already been performing their new music to audiences across the country.
