Rhonda VincentNashville, TN -- Music fans have more than just cooler weather to look forward to this Autumn. "Reno's Old Time Music" celebrates the past, present and future of Bluegrass and Old Time Music with a great September lineup, which includes Rhonda Vincent.

"Reno's Old Time Music" airs weekly in prime time on Saturday night at 7:00 P.M. Eastern and on Thursday morning at 6:30 A.M. Eastern on RFD-TV and is sponsored by Derksen Portable Buildings and the Old Time Music Store (click HERE for more information and for exact times in your area).

September 19-24: Rhonda Vincent, dubbed "The New Queen of Bluegrass" by the Wall Street Journal, began her musical journey at the age of three, performing alongside her family members on what was called The Sally Mountain Show. She sang bluegrass as a teenager, then recorded a couple of mainstream country albums in the 1990's, when makeup artists cared more about her looks than her sound. She was asked if she could "get the bluegrass out of her voice." Confused and heartbroken, she put together her first bluegrass band, and found the most natural approach to her music was in the bluegrass realm.

In addition to being the most award-winning band in Bluegrass music history, (Rhonda and her band, The Rage have taken home massive amounts of honors, totaling over 100 awards), Vincent has also performed and recorded with the best of the best, including Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, Keith Urban, Alan Jackson, Faith Hill, Martina McBride, Daryle Singletary, Richard Marx, Hank Williams Jr and more. While being a 15-time "Entertainer of the Year," Vincent has established herself as one of the most visible, best-selling artists in the genre, whose cross-over appeal stretches well into the mainstream media. For those of you who are not familiar with Rhonda, you don't want to miss this show, and for those of you who are, you already know why she's considered Bluegrass royalty.

Reno’s Old Time Music, the award-winning weekly music/talk show, is the brainchild of Producer/Host Ronnie Reno, whose over-60-year career helped forge the sound and songs of so many legendary Bluegrass and Country Music entertainers, including Reno & Smiley, The Osborne Brothers, Merle Haggard, The Reno Brothers, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Vassar Clements, Sammi Smith, Johnny Paycheck, Mac Wiseman and Conway Twitty, to name just a few.

Reno began airing his show in 1993 on another network as "Reno's Old Time Music Festival." It was the first and only national television show featuring Bluegrass and acoustic music and could be seen in 28 million households. Because of the show's rich music/talk format and Reno's influence in getting top-name guests, the show was a huge success, earning Reno a nomination for the prestigious Cable Ace Award for "Best Musical Series" and the nickname "The Dick Clark of Bluegrass."

Today, "Reno's Old Time Music" has nearly doubled its carriage with its transition to the RFD-TV network, reaching an estimated 47 million homes weekly and pulling an estimated 1.3 million monthly viewers. Although the name has changed slightly, the format remains largely the same, which includes performances by Ronnie Reno & The Reno Tradition and the weekly featured guest, an interview segment, the extremely popular "Super Pickers" segment and a sterling closing performance by the guest, who is joined by Reno on the Main Stage. Reno was honored with both the IBMA "Distinguished Achievement" (2006) and "Broadcaster of the Year" (2013) awards due to the continued success of the show.

Reno has recently released his first album in over a decade, Lessons Learned, on Rural Rhythm Records, available on iTunes, Amazon and wherever Bluegrass and Country music are sold. For more information on Ronnie Reno or "Reno's Old Time Music," please visit www.RonnieReno.com.
