Doug Supernaw’s Reno — Flashback Friday [VIDEO]

Time to wrap up another week and break out another great country song and video from the past with this week’s edition of Flashback Friday. This week we go back to 1993 for Doug Supernaw’s first big hit “Reno”

This was Doug’s second single of his debut Album “Red and Rio Grande“. The first single “Honky Tonkin’ Fool” didn’t break the Top 40, but this song peaked at #4 on the Billboard charts in the Summer of 1993. Doug would follow this up with his one and only #1 hit, ” I Don’t Call Him Daddy“.  The song actually caused a little bit of controversy in Reno, Nevada as the local country station in the area boycotted the song due to the disparaging lyrics about the city.

Unfortunately for Doug these were the good times in his career. The Late 90’s and 2000’s saw many legal issues including arrests for nonpayment of child support, driving while intoxicated, public intoxication, assault of a police officer and several incidences of possession of marijuana. In 2007, he was ordered to a mental institution after making some outrageous claims in court.  It’s sad to see where his career and life have gone, but it’s always good to remember the better times!
