JMRR had a wonderful time in Nashville when they made their third appearance on the Grand Ole Opry and their debut appearance on Ernest Tubb's Midnight Jamboree on February 15th! The night started with an introduction by Grand Ole Opry member Jeannie Seely followed by the band's performance of "Bottom Of A Mountain" and the Grandpa Jones classic, "Fallen Leaves." Right after, Opry fiddler Earl White invited Joe to join him back onstage to play "Cherokee Shuffle" as the Opry Square Dancers kicked up their heels.
Around midnight, the band joined guest host Mike Scott for an evening of music at the Ernest Tubb Record Shop's Troubadour Theatre where JMRR performed "Some Kind Of War" and "Katy Daley" on the Midnight Jamboree. And to close out the evening, Joe joined Mike and Carl Jackson for a banjo grand finale of "Lonesome Road Blues." Be sure to visit the band's Facebook page to see photos from the incredible evening and their YouTube channel to watch their performance of "Some Kind Of War."
Joe has been overwhelmed by the success of his and Junior Sisk's album, Hall of Fame Bluegrass! The lead single, "Wild Mountain Honey" has been a hit across the country. It has been the #1 song on Bluegrass Today for two months straight (January & Feburary) and hasn't left the Top 4 on the weekly charts all year! The album itself is currently #9 on the Bluegrass Unlimited monthly chart. Thanks to everyone for all of their support of Hall of Fame Bluegrass!
Joe & Junior will be performing their first "Hall of Fame Bluegrass Show" at Joe's Southern Ohio Indoor Music Festival on March 29th. The show will include members of both Rambler's Choice and the Radio Ramblers! You won't want to miss it.
February 15th is going to be a big night for The Radio Ramblers. In addition to performing for the third time at the Grand Ole Opry, it wil be our debut on the historic Midnight Jamboree.
The Midnight Jamboree was started by Ernest Tubb at his iconic record shop, and is the second longest-running live radio show in the country (The Opry is first). This year would have been Ernest Tubb's 100th birthday, so The Midnight Jamboree is hosting a series of shows to salute this historic anniversary.
Joe's friend and fellow banjo player, Mike Scott invited us to be part of the show alongside Larry Cordle, Carl Jackson, and Val Storey. We are thrilled to be a part of such an historic broadcast, especially during the Ernest Tubb Centennial. (He's one of Joe's favorites!)
The best part is, the show is absolutely FREE! The Midnight Jamboree is broadcast from The Texas Troubadour Theatre, located right beside the Ernest Tubb Record Shop on Music Valley Drive. We hope to see you at midnight on February 15th following our Opry performance. You can also tune in to The Midnight Jamboree on WSM AM 650 or wsmonline.com.
