Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers Release 
“Some Kind Of War” To Radio
Band Also Releases Performance Video with Alternative Strings

April 9, 2013 (Xenia, OH)—Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers are proud to announce the single release of “Some Kind Of War” from their highly successful project They’re Playing My Song
on Rebel Records. In addition, the band featured the song in a
performance with Alternative Strings, a youth orchestra from
Centerville, Ohio, and are releasing the performance video
simultaneously through their YouTube and Vimeo channels. 
Written just over a year ago by Country Music Hall Of Fame member Bill Anderson,
“Some Kind of War” speaks of the very relative topic that everyone is
fighting some kind of personal battle. During their performances, Joe
Mullins & The Radio Ramblers began to see that this particular song
was effecting people in a very positive way and together with Mark
Freeman of Rebel Records, decided it should be the next single from They’re Playing My Song.
Soon after, Doug Eyink, the director of Alternative Strings, asked
Mullins and the band to perform for the program’s annual fundraiser and
suggested they come up with a song for the youth orchestra to perform
with the band. “Some Kind Of War” was a natural fit, turning an already
poignant song into a beautiful work of art by combining bluegrass
instrumentation and vocals with the 45-piece youth orchestra. During the
video production, Joe Mullins sat down with Eyink to discuss the
process of song selection and arrangement of “Some Kind Of War.”

“Some Kind Of War”

is so exciting to see audiences respond to ‘Some Kind of War,'” states
Joe Mullins. “Bill Anderson’s memorable lyrics allow the listener to get
inside the song, immediately. We are grateful that his words and our
music remind us all to remember the Golden Rule. And what a thrill to
have such a talented orchestra of young people present an arrangement
that takes this song where it needs to go – right to the heart! The
positive energy in the auditorium when we performed with Alternative
Strings was surreal. It’s our hope the Some Kind of War video of our
performance will hit home for everyone. “
“Some Kind Of War” is being released to radio programmers today via AirplayDirect and is the second single from They’re Playing My Song.
The CD has already reached #1 on SiriusXM Bluegrass Junction’s Most
Played Albums chart (3/13) and is currently #7 on Bluegrass Unlimited’s
Top 15 Albums chart. For more information on Joe Mullins & The Radio
