FEATURED SHOP OF THE MONTH
201 Short Street
Canton, TX 75103
Deep in the heart of Canton, Texas is RNA Music, a good ol’ family shop where everyone is welcome to hang out, make friends, and play guitars.
Owners Ryan and Angela Lawley (the R & A of RNA Music) opened the shop in 2010. After years of both of them working as teachers and at big-box stores, Ryan (who started playing the guitar when he was 13) realized he wanted to work doing something he was passionate about – and RNA Music was born.
You’ll be greeted with a “Howdy y’all” from Ryan as you enter the shop, which carries D’Addario, Washburn, EMG, Fishman, Schecter, CMG Guitars, Acacia Guitars, Vola, and unique brands you won’t find anywhere else. And, with a mission to keep the music alive for the next generation, RNA also offers a variety of instrument and voice lessons.
Visit RNA Music's robust YouTube channel with 1,000+ videos and 7,000+ subscribers! Each week, Ryan & Angela reveal the newest guitars, compare the latest gear, and show what it’s like owning a guitar shop in a small town. Catch their Q&As as they answer viewers’ burning questions, from where to find the best BBQ in Texas to string suggestions to Ryan’s tips on beard maintenance. Through the shop and the YouTube channel, Ryan & Angela have proudly created a community of friends from around the world.
Visit RNA Music for the gear and the lessons, but stay for the stories.
