Reno & Rural Rhythm Partnering on Bigger Scale

PRESCRIPTION BLUEGRASS IMAGE  -  RONNIE RENORural Rhythm Records is proud to announce a much larger association with entertainer Ronnie Reno that will involve music and video production development and marketing and distribution. 

Rural Rhythm president Sam Passamano and Ronnie Reno have been good friends for years and in 2010 their friendship developed into music distribution for Reno’s “Reno & Smiley – 1963” and “Mac Wiseman – 1971” CD titles.

Both Ronnie Reno and Rural Rhythm have been instrumental in bringing new, classic roots and old time music to the public over for many years. The 2013 IBMA “Broadcaster of the Year”, Reno’s body of work includes recordings with Reno & Smiley and as a solo artist, live performances and his highly successful weekly TV show “RENO’S OLD TIME MUSIC” on RFD-TV.

Rural Rhythm, in its almost 60 years of music production, boasts a catalog that includes releases by such legends as Mac Wiseman, Hylo Brown, Reno & Harrell, Red Smiley and some of  today’s most popular artists such as Marty Raybon, Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, the Lonesome River Band, The Roys and many more.

I feel like my dad, Don Reno, left me in charge of making sure the next generations who play bluegrass and traditional country understand where our music came from through video and documentaries. Hopefully the next generation will be able to take it to the next level with their own talent to keep it exciting and fresh for generations to come”, said Ronnie Reno.

Among the plans for this expanded association between Reno and Rural Rhythm includes the development of a video documentary on the importance of country radio and barn dances in traditional and old time music; a new Ronnie Reno & Reno Tradition recording; bringing a special “Reno’s Old Time Music Show” with special guests to key venues and other projects to be announced shortly.

Reno’s Old Time Music TV show on RFD-TV brings the best in old time music by top artists from yesterday and today and is seen by more than 1 million TV viewers a month.  In its fifth season, Reno’s Old Time Music has provided quality productions and first rate entertainment enjoyed by millions of country and bluegrass fans and at the same time amassing one of the largest traditional old time music video libraries. Through his work over the years with the legendary group Reno & Smiley, as a solo artist and now with the huge success of Reno’s Old Time Music weekly TV show, Ronnie is one of yesterday’s and today’s important music entertainers.   Rural Rhythm is excited to be working with Ronnie to help him expand his audience even further and provide his fans with more opportunities to enjoy the talents and showmanship in new and different settings and places.”, commented Passamano.
