[6/21] Preview: Ram Herrera at Tejano Ranch

On Friday, June 21, Ram Herrera will be back in Austin at Tejano Ranch. Known as “The Most Wanted Man,” “The Man of 1000 Roses,” and one of Tejano music’s undisputed sex symbols, the San Antonio native will delight fans with his big smooth voice and decades of hits at the north Austin Tejano club.

Herrera is a bonafide Tejano superstar and, having been in the industry for over 30 years, has seen the genre rise and fall while remaining one of its most popular acts. He first gained notoriety as lead singer for David Lee Garza y Los Musicales, before embarking on an extraordinarily successful solo career, which has earned him a Grammy nomination and numerous music awards, as well as recognition for his humanitarian efforts.

With a career full of hits, Ram is probably best known for “Amor Querido” and also for the Tex-Mex flavored country tune, “I’ve Got a Never Ending Love.” His latest album, En El Amor, was released in June 2012.

Long story short: A great entertainer with one of the best voices doing quintessential Tejano music with a little country thrown in for good measure. Definitely a cowboy hat and Wranglers kind of night.

Tejano Ranch is located at 7601 North Lamar, just south of Highway 183 in north Austin. The doors open at 8 p.m. The cover charge is $10 before 9 p.m, and $12 cover after 9 p.m. 18+ are welcome.
