Ronnie Reno: Lower Than LonesomeNashville, TN -- Lessons Learned, the latest album by "Bluegrass Music's Youngest Old-Timer" Ronnie Reno, earned the #1 spot on AirPlay Direct Global Radio Indicator Bluegrass/Folk chart for March. Released on March 17, the album received 890 downloads, signifying that radio is pleased with Reno's debut album on Rural Rhythm Records and his first project in over a decade. Programmers can still download the album at AirPlay Direct (click here). Lessons Learned is available for fans on iTunes, Amazon and wherever Bluegrass and Country music are sold.

The appropriately named Lessons Learned hits retailers as Reno marks 60 years in entertainment (look for information about the upcoming celebration in future announcements). The album features 11 tracks that pull from his experiences as an artist, songwriter and TV host. Reno is backed by his band, The Reno Tradition and the rich harmony vocals of Sonya Isaacs. David Frizzell adds guest vocals to the only cover song on the album, a Lefty Frizell classic.

Reno's award-winning career is one of the most diverse and colorful in the industry. He has lent his talents to a long list of seminal performers in both Bluegrass and Country, including Reno & Smiley, The Louvin Brothers, The Osborne Brothers, Merle Haggard, The Reno Brothers, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Conway Twitty, Vassar Clements, Sammy Smith, Mac Wiseman and many others.

Reno can still be seen on his weekly, long-standing television show “Reno's Old Time Country Music," which reaches an estimated 48 million homes and pulls 1.2 million monthly viewers on RFD-TV (click here for more information, airtimes and upcoming guests).
