Grammy-winning classic country with a Hispanic heritage
During the mid-1990s, Grammy Award-winner Rick Trevino emerged as one of the first popular Hispanic singers in country music since the mid-1970s, when Freddy Fender and Johnny Rodriguez were recording hits. He racked up several hits over the next few years with his Garth Brooks-inspired blend of new country and album rock. Rick was born into a musical family – his father was a member of a local Tejano group. Both of his parents fostered his musical interests, and as a child, he listened to a variety of music, including Tejano, country, classical pianist Van Cliburn, and mainstream pop/rockers like Elton John and Billy Joel. Rick’s first album, the Spanish-language Dos Mundos, was accompanied by a single release of “Just Enough Rope,” which was released in English, Spanish and a bilingual version – the first traditional country single to be released in both Spanish and English. Rick’s hits include the Top 40 single, “Honky Tonk Crowd,” and two Top 10 singles, “She Can’t Say I Didn’t Cry” and “Doctor Time.” Rick won a Grammy Award in 1998 as part of Los Super Seven, an all-star band that included Cesar Rosas and David Hidalgo of Los Lobos, Freddy Fender, Joe Ely, and Flaco Jimenez.
