"Reno" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Doug Supernaw. It was released in May 1993 as the second single from his album Red and Rio Grande. It peaked at number 4 in the United States, and number 12 in Canada. It was his first top five hit, as well as his first top ten hit.
The song caused local controversy in Reno, Nevada due to its portrayal of the city. Then-mayor Pete Sferrazza thought that the song portrayed the city as "heartless", and one country station refused to play the song due to complaints from listeners.
The music video was directed by Sherman Halsey. It shows Doug Supernaw playing the song with his band, as well as scenes with him and the band walking around the city and gambling in various casinos. It was partially in black and white, while some of it was in color.
