The tradition of country music, the soulfulness of gospel and the grit and speed of rock 'n' roll have helped mold the artist you see today!
Ryne was raised on a 200 acre cattle farm in Upton, KY. to the beat of country music. His first influences were his parents, who had a broad musical background from church to the local dive establishments in their rural community. This is the inspiration to the hit song "Small Town" on his new album due this spring.
Ryne began cutting his teeth on country music by listening to country artists like Brad Paisley and Blake Shelton along with legends such as Charlie Daniels. As Ryne's musical interests progressed, his influences started to evolve into the traditional tunes of Alan Jackson, the sassy soulfulness of Lynyrd Skynyrd, and the grit and energy of Metallica. These eclectic musical genres have laced his chords and sounds that have secured his musical style and given new meaning to country rock.
Ryne has had the privilege to open for Wynona Judd and share the stage with Travis Tritt, Kid Rock and Scotty McCreary. Ryne is currently working on his second studio album and new music videos for YouTube and CMT.
