Ronnie Reno has been blessed with one of the most colorful, diverse and distinguished careers in the music industry, one that spans over 60 years, alongside some of the most legendary entertainers in Bluegrass and Country music, including Reno & Smiley, Reno & Harrell, The Osborne Brothers, Merle Haggard, The Reno Brothers and Ronnie Reno & The Reno Tradition.

Throughout the years, he has penned many hit songs, including Conway Twitty’s 1978 hit "Boogie Grass Band" and produced successful albums for Merle Haggard, Mac Wiseman and his own recently released album Lessons Learned. Just a half a generation removed from the birth of Bluegrass, Ronnie is one of the few remaining performers who can remember with lucidity many the milestones that have shaped both Country and Bluegrass genres—including performances at Carter’s Fold and the Barn Dance era of radio, which led to the initial rise in Country and Bluegrass music’s popularity.

Reno performed at the very first Bluegrass Festival, was entrenched in the Classic Country scene and Bluegrass Explosion in the 70’s, and now, serves as “Ambassador of Old-Time Music” for up-and-coming artists through his longstanding, award-winning television show, “Reno’s Old Time Music,” which can now be seen in over 50 million homes in prime time on RFD-TV. Reno recently received SPBGMA’s highest honor, induction into the Preservation Hall of Fame. For more information on Ron\nie Reno, please visit www.ronniereno.com.
