15 June 1971, Austin, Texas, USA. Treviño is a Mexican-American who sings in both English and Spanish. His first single was released in English as Just Enough Rope and in Spanish as Bastante Cordon, with a bilingual version also available. Similarly, his first album, Just Enough Rope, was also available in Spanish as Dos Mundos. He moved to Columbia Records where the producer Steve Buckingham encouraged him into the mainstream of 90s country music with a strong element of 60s honky tonk. The second album included the catchy Bobbie Ann Mason, a US country hit single. He always includes Spanish material in his act and has said: People love it as Spanish is such a romantic language. Learning As You Go was his major commercial breakthrough in 1996.
