Co-Hosted by Rhonda Vincent


Dubbed the "Queen of Bluegrass” by the Wall Street Journal, Vincent 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 and was asked if she could "get the bluegrass out of her voice." Confused and heartbroken, she put together her first bluegrass band. Today, Rhonda Vincent & The Rage are the most award-winning band in Bluegrass music history. In addition to being a 15-time Entertainer of the Year, Rhonda 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. 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. 




Co-Hosted by Del McCoury


With a prodigious 50-year history, legendary artist and original bluegrass all-star, Del McCoury, isn’t stopping anytime soon! Working alongside the late, master Bill Monroe in his early years, McCoury has built a spectacular career and become a "household" name within bluegrass circles. Known as Bluegrass music's "Patriarch," this elder statesman has been honored with numerous awards, including two Grammy wins, over 30 IBMA awards (including numerous Entertainer and Male Vocalist of the Year titles), membership in the Grand Ole Opry in 2003, a National Heritage Fellowship Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Endowment for the Arts in 2010, and induction into the International Bluegrass Hall of Fame in 2011. Additionally, the always cordial McCoury has amassed a remarkable legion of incredibly devoted fans known as Del-Heads, who follow him on his festival circuits, snap up his albums, and relish his never-out-of-place hairstyle.

Co-Hosted by Sierra Hull


At only 24, Sierra Hull has enjoyed career that has spanned more than a decade. She was given her first mandolin at age 8. By age 11, Alison Krauss had called with an invitation to the Grand Ole Opry stage; by 12, Rounder was expressing interest (she signed a record deal with Rounder at 13, with her first album released at 16). She’s also performed at The White House, Carnegie Hall (twice), the Kennedy Center, and traveled around the world sharing her music. Then there’s the fact that Berklee honored her with the school’s most prestigious award, the Presidential Scholarship, the first for a Bluegrass musician. Weighted Mind, Hull's 2016 album, earned a Grammy nomination and debuted at #1 on Billboard's Bluegrass charts. Also in 2016, Hull finally claimed the IBMA's "Mandolin Player of the Year" award (it was her ninth nomination in this category).

This 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"reaches over 50 million homes weekly and pulling an estimated 1.3 million monthly viewers on the RFD-TV network. 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.


In 2015, Reno released his first album in over a decade,LESSONS LEARNED, on Rural Rhythm Records (available iTunes, Amazon, and wherever Bluegrass and Country music are sold).


In February 2016, Ronnie Reno was inducted into the Preservation Hall of Greats, SPBGMA's highest honorReno’s name was added to an incredible list of Bluegrass legends and seminal performers who have been inducted since 1984, beginning with Bill Monroe, and including Ronnie's father, Don Reno, who was inducted along with Red Smiley in 1985.
