Joe Mullins & The Radio RamblersXenia, OH -- The International Bluegrass Music Association's (IBMA) reigning Emerging Artist of Year, Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers are set to reach a career milestone when they make their Grand Ole Opry debut in Nashville, Tennessee later this month. Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers will perform on the Grand Ole Opry on July 27th and are in fact, guests on Bill Anderson's portion of the show. Other performances that night will include Vince Gill, Paul Franklin and Ronnie Milsap.

With a successful, chart-making CD, They're Playing My Song, and a busy touring schedule that will find them covering Ohio, Tennessee, and Montana this month alone, it was only a matter of time before the band caught the attention of management of the famed Grand Ole Opry. "Like most bands on the road, we've dreamed of a chance to bring our music to the historical stage of the Grand Ole Opry for years," states Joe Mullins. "With the help of the legendary Bill Anderson who co-wrote our latest single, "Some Kind Of War," the management listened to our music and extended the invitation. We are so very grateful for the opportunity!"

They're Playing My Song has spent 7 months on Bluegrass Unlimited's Top 15 Albums chart and is currently #10 for the month of July. Also this month, "Some Kind Of War" made it's debut on the Bluegrass Today Monthly Songs chart at #9.
