About Freddy Fender:

Freddy was a Mexican-American singer who rose from the depths of
poverty, breaking free from a life spent picking cotton and rising to a
life spent picking guitar. In his youth, in 1956, he was the first to
record and sing Spanish rock and roll; he was known as the “Mexican
Elvis” and called “El Bebop Kid.” In the mid-1970s, Fender would become
famous literally overnight as a rock ‘n’ country megastar with his first
two monster hits “Before the Next Teardrop Falls” and “Wasted Days and
Wasted Nights.”

Instantaneously, his records crossed over the Billboard country charts
into the rock and pop charts, each rising to No. 1. He was given a
Country Music Association award for “Single of the Year” and an Academy
of Country Music award as “Most Promising Male Artist” in 1975. His
voice and charismatic personality also made him a nationwide television
celebrity in the ‘70s and ‘80s.

migrant worker with a passion for music who picked cotton, a
three-string guitar and achieved the great American Dream.
