ABOUT THE SINGER
Mike Hernandez started his musical career at an early age. His first taste of the spot light was at the age of 9, his mother Sandy Hernandez stopping a mariachi group ridding on a float in the Cinco De Mayo parade in Andrews, TX telling the group, “This is my mijo (my son) and he sings!”. Hernandez recalls getting to perform with the band for the entire parade! Hernandez initially started singing mariachi music and later developed his love for country music. Mike states; “I started singing music like Pedro and Vincente Fernandez”. Music has always been a positive outlet for Hernandez, along with 23 years of bull riding! He joined The American Junior Rodeo Association in grade school and climbed the ranks to the professional level. Perhaps it's this dangerous sport that taught him to be persistent even in his music career. Hernandez pointed out, bull riding taught him how to work hard to be the best!

Hernandez is the youngest of three sons. Hernandez formed a band in April 2010 that became one of the hottest country bands in the Permian Basin. Their audience grew with every performance.
