The smooth voice of an award-winning Tejano legend
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 been honored with a Tejano Music Award as Male Entertainer of the Year twice and Male Vocalist of the Year as well as a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Tejano Music Association. Ram began his professional career with David Lee Garza y Los Musicales in 1980. The following year, he left and started his own band, Ramiro Herrera y Montana, and recorded two albums. Impressive regional airplay and a compelling live show resulted in Ram signing to Sony. His solo debut, Most Wanted Man, was not only his first in English, it went gold and remains a classic in the Tejano canon. His third solo album, 1989’s The Outlaw, followed suit and his band was renamed the Outlaws. For the next 15 years, Ram continued to record and shared the stage with a wide range of performers, including Doug Sahm, Freddy Fender and Selena, who opened for him in one of her early shows. Ram’s recordings and performances include everything from cumbias, rancheras and power ballads to salsa, Latin, and roots rock ‘n’ roll. His 2010 album, Ungrateful, was nominated for a Latin Grammy. Ram is involved in a vast number of charitable organizations and won a humanitarian award for his involvement, which was presented to him by the late Texas Governor Ann Richards. His most recent album, Mucho Mas Que Amor, was released in 2015.
