CD reviews for Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers
The Story We Tell
Joe Mullins makes it sound easy, and when surrounded by extraordinary talent like the Radio Ramblers, it sounds even easier. Throw in songs written by Larry Cordle, Ronnie Bowman and Jerry Salley, and "The Story We Tell" is sure to be a great one.
The release is the follow-up to Mullins' award winning gospel album, "Sacred Memories," but this time the story is a bit different. The lone gospel number "When God's In It," is from the pen of Bowman and Salley »»»
If Joe Mullins' name is on the CD you know you're going to hear good bluegrass. This all-gospel CD offers interesting perspectives. The Radio Ramblers (Mike Terry, mandolin/vocals; Jason Barie, fiddle; Duane Sparks, guitar/vocals; Randy Barnes, bass/vocals) with Mullins playing banjo provide the same excellent music whether on stage or on CD.

When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote
On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day.

Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music
John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
