Los Lonely Boys

There comes a time in every band's career when an overwhelming sense of fear and dread of failure begins to creep in, especially for groups that have the fortune to make a big splash right out of the starting gate and then face the daunting task of a follow-up. But try telling that to Los Lonely Boys. Sure, they won a Grammy for the single "Heaven" off their eponymous debut, but rather than concern themselves with how to avoid the sinister sophomore slump, the Garza brothers spent a year relentlessly touring and writing and woodshedding material on the road for their new disc, Sacred. Fear and dread? Forget it; these Latin-flavored roots rockers don't seem to have the time.
