Bluegrass music artists Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers have announced that they have been invited to perform on the Grand Ole Opry for the very first time on Saturday, July 27th! The band says, "We are beyond excited about this dream of a lifetime for our band and are planning additional events over the course of the weekend that we'll be announcing as details are finalized."
If you happen to live in the Southern Ohio area and would like to make a weekend out of it, the Xenia Adult Recreation and Services Center is taking a bus tour to Opryland. Leaving on July 27th and returning the 28th, this round trip will be filled with activities. On Saturday see Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers, and Sunday visit Studio B, and the Country Music Hall of Fame.

If you can't make The Opry, Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers will be the special guests of Reno's Old Time Music that will air on RFD TV July 13th at 7:00pm EDT. Joe and the boys taped the show back in April and not only played songs from their hit CD They're Playing My Song, but also interviewed with the show's host, Ronnie Reno. The show will rebroadcast July 14th at 2:30am EDT and July 16th at 5:00pm EDT.
Recording is almost complete on an exciting new CD you can look for later this year from Rebel Records. Joe and Junior Sisk have spent the past few months in the studio and have a powerful collection of songs recorded! "Junior and I have been friends for several years and think a lot alike when choosing and arranging traditional Bluegrass tunes," says Joe. "He invited me to sing with him for one tune on his last CD, and we had so much fun singing together we spent this past winter arranging a special collection of songs we think folks will love!" The project is in still in production but stay tuned for all the details from Joe Mullins and Junior Sisk.
