Country Roland - The Best of Country Roland

Stock #: HAC 8380A

 

Hacienda Records presents “The Best of Country Roland” containing 15 favorites by the man who’s name is synonymous with Tejano Country music.

From the small boy who learned to speak English by listening to country music in the late 1930’s to the man who rose to be the biggest star in Tejano/Country, a genera he almost single handily created, Country Roland never lost sights of his humble roots or his beginnings.

His last public performance was at Hidalgo Fest in 2009 where at the age of 77 he still kept the audience dancing and singing to the music he was known for.

Sadly Country Roland passed away in 2012 at the age of 80, yet his music will live forever.

Is popularity hit a peak during the “Urban Cowboy” years of the late 70’s.  It was at that time that Hacienda Records released the album, El Rey De Country, with follow up albums continuing up till the time of his death. 

This CD celebrates his life and his music with 15 Country Roland favorites as recognized by his many adoring fans.

This album is a part of Tejano history, with classics like “La Barca De Oro”, “Laguna De Pesares, “Con Cartitas, and the song he was most known for, a bilingual version of the classic “Welcome To My World.
