If you didn't catch this special edition of Ronnie Reno's live show recently, you are in for a treat. Ronnie Reno interviewed Bobby Osborne and Glen Duncan as a pre-cursor to a huge new video featuring Bobby's legendary vocals on the hit country record "I Can't Stop Loving You," written by Don Gibson.
The release itself is the result of a "COVID-19 shutdown" video that features Bobby Osborne. There is no audio recording or project release slated for the track, but it's a song that Bobby says he always wanted to do. The result, produced by OMS Records, is a gathering of old friends and was recorded at home.
Osborne, now 88 years old, an IBMA Hall of Fame member and is a longtime member of the Grand Ole Opry. The Opry has not been holding live shows the during COVID-19 virus, and like everyone else, his touring schedule was heavily effected with cancellations. He saw this as a new and exciting venture to pursue.
OMS Records, spearheaded by Hugh Moore, who also takes part in the virtual festivities, released two records for Bobby Osborne many years ago and looked forward to the opportunity to work with him on this fun project.
A Bluegrass music icon in his own right, Ronnie Reno hosts his own show live from Facebook and is also partnered with the Bluegrass Music TV empire being built with Sammy Passamano. Ronnie played with The Osborne Brothers when they became the CMA Vocal group of the year, during their time with the Decca Record label.
Glen Duncan, fiddle player extraordinaire and acclaimed session musician from Nashville, has graced the stage or the recordings of nearly anyone and everyone you can think of in Country and Bluegrass music. Best known as one of Bill Monroe's "Bluegrass Boys," as well as being a member of distinguished bands like Longview and the original Lonesome Standard Time with Larry Cordle.
