Rural Rhythm Releases Bluegrass Legends in Heritage Collection Series!

DON RENO & BILL HARRELL with The Tennessee Cut-Ups (RUR-171) Rural Rhythm Records is proud to announce a new title by Bluegrass legends Don Reno & Bill Harrell in its archival HERITAGE COLLECTION series.

Rural Rhythm is now releasing one more title in the HERITAGE COLLECTION Series in both the physical CD and digital formats by DON RENO & BILL HARRELL with The Tennessee Cut-Ups, originally released in 1966.

Considered one of the legends of Bluegrass Music, Don Reno’s superb and unique banjo style and vocals, along with Bill Harrell’s fine guitar pickin’ and singin’, is an overwhelming combination even before you add the solid background performances of Ronnie Reno on mandolin and George Shuffler on bass.

“I’m so proud to be able to go back in time and share this wonderful recording with the many fans of my Dad, Don Reno and his partner Bill Harrell. It’s been 47 years since the original recording and it sounds like it was recorded yesterday. I’m honored to be a part of this wonderful treasure of music”.
