XENIA — Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers are hitting the road this month with a new national sponsor.
The Xenia-based Bluegrass group is being promoted by Rue Farms Rustic Potato Chips. Mullins has been a spokesman for the products on Classic Country Radio, his network of five southwest Ohio radio stations, since 2015.
“Bluegrass musicians and discerning fans always place emphasis on quality, hard work, and genuineness,” Mullins said. “I’ve been acquainted with Matt and Jeanne Rue the past few years and they are our kind of folks. Their hard work and dedication in producing tasty, healthy potato chips is truly inspiring. Rue Farms Rustic Potato Chips has become a delicious sensation in Ohio and I’m grateful for the opportunity to introduce them to our friends everywhere.”
An Ohio-based, veteran-owned snack producer, Rue Farms Rustic Potato Chips are available in six flavors: Sea Salt; Salt & Pepper; Dill Herb; Pink Himalayan Salt; Salt & Cider Vinegar; and Back Woods BBQ. Currently, the chips are available for sale at their retail location in Springfield, and at select retailers throughout Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia. Customers can also order online at www.RueFarms.com.
“Rue Farms Rustic Potato Chips is honored to sponsor Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers,” said Jeanne Rue. “What better combination could we possibly have asked for? We are big fans of the Ramblers and in turn, Joe and the boys are a huge support for Rue Farms. We can’t express enough our sincere gratitude for their belief in us and for the success of our potato chip adventure. Joe has done wonders for us on the air at Classic Country Radio and now the show is going to go on the road with Joe Mullins & The Radio Ramblers. It is a natural fit, just like ‘tater chips and dip.”
Mullins and his band will perform a special concert Saturday, August 19, at the Rue Farms Rustic Potato Chips headquarters to celebrate the company’s expansion and the release of the band’s latest CD due to be released on Rebel Records in August.
