Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers, For The Record

JOE MULLINS & THE RADIO RAMBLERS, recently signed to Nashville’s Billy Blue Records, announce the release of For The Record, a 12-song debut release on the burgeoning label.

Lead by banjo playing Bluegrass veteran Joe Mullins, the band includes a plethora of instrumental and vocal talent with Jason Barie on fiddle, Mike Terry on mandolin and vocals, Duane Sparks on guitar and vocals, and Randy Barnes
on upright bass and vocals. These are true industry and fan favorites,
having garnered multiple IBMA (6) and SPBGMA (4) Awards, including the
2018 IBMA Award for Song of the Year (“If I’d Have Wrote That Song”).

From the hard-driving “That Old Wheel” and the fun, upbeat “Bacon In My
Beans,” to the emotional “A Folded Flag” and beautifully arranged,
soulful vocals of “I Want To Know My Lord,” every track on this new
project is strong evidence that Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers
remain in a class all their own, with a unique and popular brand of the
finest Bluegrass music.

The first radio single, “The Guitar Song” is a duet between band leader
Joe Mullins and the legendary, Grand Ole Opry member, Del McCoury.
Co-written by another legend, Country Music Hall of Fame member, Bill
Anderson, with award-winning songwriters, Jamey Johnson and Vicky
McGehee, this version of the song, cleverly arranged by Mullins, is a
conversation between two pawn shop instruments, a guitar and a banjo,
hanging side-by-side on the store wall. The guitar (McCoury) and banjo
(Mullins) discuss their respective Bluegrass history in the hands of
some of the genre’s greatest pickers and singers. This is a truly
historic recording featuring two of the most popular veterans in
Bluegrass music in their first-ever collaboration.

Having gained the reputation as a band that always chooses great songs,
the recognizable sound of Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers, with
their characteristically rich vocals, have exceeded that reputation,
delivering another collection of wonderfully well-written songs,
arranged and recorded in their inimitable style.

“I am hopeful that everyone can HEAR the fun that went into this
new recording. I looked around one day and told the guys, ‘We are
blessed with great instruments, playing into the best microphones in
Nashville, at the studio of our friend and mentor, Ricky Skaggs. How fortunate we are to have an opportunity to do what we love. Could things be any better?’ And then, Del McCoury walked in to do a song with us — life is good and we are thankful.” – Joe Mullins
