Now The Summer’s Gone from Mullins and the Ramblers

summers_goneRebel Records has released a second single from the upcoming Joe Mullins & the Radio Ramblers CD, Another Day From Life.

This one is Now The Summer’s Gone, written by Barkley Davis, a young bluegrass writer from Indiana with a pedigree. His dad, Marvin, has been penning grass classics for the past 40 years, including Bootleg John which was memorably recorded by Ralph Stanley shortly after he returned to performing on his own in the 1970s.

The fiddle and banjo driven number is a perfect song for this time of year, which Mullins says is going over big at their live shows.

“It’s actually a hillbilly wedding song, but it says nothing about shotguns, sisters or cousins! This tune is becoming a hand-clapping favorite with Radio Ramblers fans.”


You can pick up the single now from iTunes and Amazon, and radio programmers can download it from Airplay Direct.

The full album will be released during IBMA week in Raleigh, on September 30.
