RONNIE RENO CELEBRATES 60 YEARS OF LEGENDARY MUSIC WITH 
NEW ALBUM, LESSONS LEARNED, SET FOR MARCH 17 RELEASE

NASHVILLE, TN (March 9, 2015) – RONNIE RENO,
whose musical talents helped forge the sound and songs of so many
legendary Bluegrass and Country Music entertainers, celebrates 60 years in entertainment with the release of his new album, LESSONS LEARNED, due in stores on March 17, 2015. The first single release, “Lower Than Lonesome,” hits airwaves today.
 
LESSONS LEARNED is the perfect album title for the two-time IBMA honoree
and “Bluegrass Music’s Youngest Old-Timer.” Over the past 60 years,
Ronnie Reno has had one of the most colorful, diverse and distinguished
careers in the music industry—the lineage of which is a study of both
traditional Country and Bluegrass music history. His musical talents
have provided the foundation for a long list of seminal performers in
both genres, including Reno & Smiley, The Osborne Brothers, Merle Haggard, The Reno Brothers, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and many others. As a songwriter, his music was cut by artists such as Vassar Clements, Sammi Smith and Merle Haggard, and his song “Boogie Grass Band” was a pivotal #1 smash hit for Conway Twitty. As an award-winning television producer, his show “RENO’S OLD TIME MUSIC FESTIVAL” was the first nationally-broadcast show featuring Bluegrass Music, earning him a prestigious Cable Ace nomination and the nickname “The Dick Clark of Bluegrass.” His new show, “RENO’S OLD TIME MUSIC,” airs in prime time on Saturday nights on RFD-TV with 1.2 million monthly viewers (click

The long-awaited LESSONS LEARNED is Reno’s first album in nearly a decade and his debut album on Rural Rhythm Records.
Each song tells a story about life, love and relationships that pull
from his rich experiences as an artist, songwriter and TV host. Reno’s
singer/songwriting talents really shine on this 11-song album containing 9 songs penned by Reno. Produced by RONNIE RENO, LESSONS LEARNED showcases The Reno Tradition, (Mike Scott – banjo; Heath Van Winkle – bass; John Maberry – mandolin; and Steve Day – Fiddle), Ronnie’s current band and the house band on his TV show. LESSONS LEARNED
contains “Reno’s Mando Magic,” a powerhouse instrumental done in the
Reno tradition and 10 songs featuring Reno’s warm passionate vocals with
harmony vocals by Heath Van Winkle and award-winning vocalist Sonya Isaacs.
Album highlights include the title track, the up-tempo “Sweet Rosa
Lee,” “Lower Than Lonesome,” “I Think Of You,” “Bad News At Home,” “Our
Last Goodbye,” the Reno & Smiley classic “Trail Of Sorrow” and the
Lefty Frizzell classic “Always Late” with guest vocals by David Frizzell.
