Ronnie recorded and performed with “New River Line” from 2002- 2006, an original bluegrass band he co-founded in Kentucky. It was during this time in which Ronnie began his songwriting,
contributing many originals to NRL’s first two projects, one of which “My Brother Paul” earned runner up in the 2007 Chris Austin Songwriting contest at the annual MerleFest festival in Wilkesboro, NC. Ronnie left NRL in 2007 to pursue solo interest in other genres such as folk and rock, devoting his time to a songwriting journey in multiple paths. His songwriting is emotionally intense with socially relevant material, and ranges from controversial subjects such as poverty, drug abuse, and politics to memories of home, thoughts of freedom, love, and social responsibility.
