Reno has spent the better part of his life alongside the great masters of both Bluegrass and Country Music…there’s a reason for that. He’s an incredible talent. We are pleased to see such a warm response from radio. What a treasure – Robert Weingartz, Chairman/Creator, AirPlay Direct.

His new album, LESSONS LEARNED, is an ongoing testament to his legendary footprint in musical history and we are pleased to have him in the RFD-TV family – Kelly Kantz, Sr. VP, Programming Sales, RFD-TV.
It’s very satisfying to hear a seasoned pro singing new songs delivered with ease–nothing forced or over-produced, just talent on display with a tasteful presentation. So refreshing – Joe Mullins, Classic Country Radio, WBZI WEDI WKFI.
Lessons Learned is an album that you can tell was crafted by a man who has seen it all and can seamlessly blend those experiences into his music. It’s genuine and from the heart. Reno simply understands how country music works and many artists today would be wise to take notes from an elder statesman like Reno – CountryPerspective.com.
