To kick off the Christmas season and the introduction of their latest CD "Hymns From the Hills" Joe has asked that every attendee bring a canned food item to help stock the food banks in our area. This special Opera House show is a first time event for Joe and the Radio Ramblers, and we hope that it becomes an annual tradition.
Joe and the Ramblers Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers have officially completed the recording process of their soon-to-be-released gospel project for Rebel Records. Hymns From The Hills features both new and older songs and some of the finest singers and musicians in bluegrass and gospel music. Very special guests on the CD include Ralph Stanley, Doyle Lawson, Paul Williams, Rhonda Vincent, Larry Sparks, Dale Perry, James Allen Shelton, Matt DeSpain, Missy Everidge, and a special children's choir comprised of 22 youth. The CD is a true labor of love for Joe who states, "This project has been a lifetime in the making. When the Radio Ramblers came together in 2006, we were blessed with the right combination of talent to produce a set of songs with a broad diversity of arrangements and dynamics.
