Man-Do-Lin Productions is owned and operated by Country and Bluegrass legend Ronnie Reno. Man-Do-Lin Productions is a heritage music label that is dedicated to preserving the fine recorded works of the Reno family and many other legends and pioneers of traditional Bluegrass and Country music.
Ronnie Reno, often called “Bluegrass Music’s Youngest Old Timer,” is the son of banjo pioneer Don Reno, and began his career over 60 years ago playing with his father’s group, the Hall of Fame duo Reno & Smiley. In the late 60’s and early 70’s, Reno played bass for The Osborne Brothers and would lend his voice to their trademark trio harmony before becoming a front man for Merle Haggard’s Strangers.
As a songwriter, Reno would pen several cuts for Haggard, as well as the pivotal signature song, “Boogie Grass Band” for Conway Twitty. In 1983, Reno made his first solo entry on the charts with “Homemade Love,” but would later reunite with his brothers, Don Wayne and Dale, to form the celebrated group, The Reno Brothers. In 1993, Reno became an ambassador of traditional music, producing and hosting the first and only national television show featuring Bluegrass music, the Cable Ace-nominated “Reno’s Old Time Music.”
“Reno’s Old-Time Music” TV show aired weekly for nearly 25 years and reached over 80 million homes on the RFD-TV Network. In 2016, Reno earned SPBGMA’s highest honor, and Ronnie was inducted into the Preservation Hall of Greats, alongside such legends as Bill Monroe, Ralph Stanley and his father.
