A Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient from the Tejano Music Association
Ramiro “Ram” Herrera is a smooth-voiced, award-winning Tejano singer and songwriter, who is not only a staple on the Texas music scene but is considered one of its legends. He has received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Tejano Music Association. He began his professional career in 1980 and appeared on the albums Cuatro Caminos (1981), Todavia No Me Muero (1982), and Especialmente Para Ti (1983). The following year, he left and started his own band, Ramiro Herrera y Montana, with whom he recorded two albums, Que Lindo Es el Amor and Rosas Para una Rosa. Impressive regional airplay and a compelling live show resulted in Herrera signing too. His solo debut, Most Wanted Man Ram, was not only his first in English, it went gold and is a classic in the Tejano canon. Herrera’s musical range is impressive. His recordings and shows include everything from cumbias and rancheras to power ballads, salsa, and Latin and roots rock & roll. His 2001 album, Ingrata, was nominated for a Latin Grammy. Herrera is also involved in a vast number of charitable organizations and won a humanitarian award for his involvement.
