Grand Ole Opry veterans to perform here

THOMASVILLE — Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers are set to turn in another peak performance at the Thomasville Municipal Auditorium on Friday at 7:30 p.m.

“They were here a couple of years ago, and they put on close to the best show we’ve had in 11 years (of the Another Night of Bluegrass Series,” said Len Robinson, who booked the group that has performed multiple times at the Grand Old Opry.

Grand Ole Opry General Manager Pete Fisher said, “They are awesome!”

Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers feature an energetic mix of quality bluegrass and gospel music, a professional presentation, inventive instrumental work and a wide variety of vocal arrangements — including a capella quartets — and tasteful, down-home humor. They were named the IBMA 2012 Emerging Artist of the Year.

“They are really, really doing well,” Robinson said. (Country music legend) Bill Anderson has been pushing them.”

Robinson said the band’s “Some Kind of War” is “hot” hit. The song was one of the 30 most played bluegrass songs in 2013.

In addition, Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers’ most recent album was the most played bluegrass album in December 2012 and March 2013.

Although his Ohio-based band has been on the national scene for a relatively short period, Mullins, owner of three radio stations in the Midwest, is hardly a newcomer. Over the past two decades, he has earned five IBMA awards and two Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America awards.

Tickets cost $10 and are available at the Visitors Center, 144 E. Jackson St., from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Thursday and Friday. They will also be on sale immediate before the show.

All seats are reserved.
