Rebel Records artists, Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers, are a red hot band in the bluegrass world today. In 2013, they topped the charts with the song, “Bottom of a Mountain,” and now Joe and Junior Sisk’s collaboration on the single, “Wild Mountain Honey,” is currently holding the top rating on Bluegrass Today’s January chart. Joe Mullins , a veteran bluegrass performer and radio broadcaster, formed Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers in 2006 with the intent of performing an energetic mix of quality Bluegrass and Gospel music played with inventive instrumentals, vocal arrangements and a cappella quartets along with a touch of tasteful- down-home humor. To say that they have accomplished that intention is an understatement. The band’s recordings are heavily played on numerous bluegrass-oriented radio stations and have earned many accolades. Over his long career, Joe has earned five IBMA awards and three SPBGMA awards. In addition to Joe on banjo, the Radio Ramblers include: Duane Sparks on guitar and vocals, Evan McGregor on fiddle, Mike Terry on Mandolin and Randy Barnes on bass. The words of Pete Fisher, General Manager of the Grand Ole Opry, say it all about this band: “They are awesome.” www.radioramblers.com.
