You know after ten years of being absent that hasn't -- -- -- -- come back together.
Then you know they didn't there was there's a lot of things you know -- originally you're gonna do.
We were just gonna do -- tour and so.
You know we we were approached his like well do we want -- put the band back together to a summer tour.
And -- just play the old stuff and you know do all that and and and I thought you know that this didn't seem.
Like that was reason enough to bring back the band plus it would put us in a weird sort of I didn't -- I'm not ready to be categorized in the old these category just yet -- -- I don't think we're ready for that and and I happen to have.
A group of songs you know that that started to sound like.
Like -- mavericks' record and so like a call my friends over big machine record label and asked that they be interested and in a record and the you know resounding yes all the way around and and so they sudden once they signed off on on us make -- a record than.
That made this.
Real you know much more than just a reunion tour and so once we were able to.
Do that and then we went in and made the record and we literally just we just.
It felt like picking up what we left off.
-- -- picking up where you left jobless easier vocal group of the year for our country music in 95 in 96 he won a Grammy in not in 1996 you've to have.
-- fourteen billboard top top billboard's songs -- better I mean your music is a fusion from what I've seen for head whenever I use I mean it's kind of tough to really -- -- -- a handle what kind of music you have right.
It's a -- -- no influence with country would pop.
Talk to me how does this music what it is that it was is -- -- do it justice and has the story.
You know I mean it's like -- -- we we we don't even think about it we just got to get the studio and you know.
We bring in was it.
What we know what we feel what we what what we're about and it and some are -- gets thrown into this big pile and we've we've always prided ourselves and doing what's what we feel is right.
For our records anyhow the Latino influence specifically at how does it kind of -- -- your music if you like it's in every song and in some respects but.
Can you talk a little bit better about that influenced.
Well you know for all of us we we grew up.
You know I've been there's a reason that the maverick music is so eclectic you know it's hard to define what exactly it is and the reason this is that.
The things that we grew up listening to the things that we were.
Surrounded by you know I grew up.
In east Los Angeles.
I'm from Miami Q and she is Mexican American -- an American east meets west sort of thing -- right now middle of the country you know but.
Really -- -- at least for me it comes from my upbringing you know my my grandfather was mariachi musician.
And played three or four different instruments we would have big parties as and I think that's always do yeah.
So you -- -- -- -- enough straight enough departed via but he would bring -- the instruments and they would you know he would force people to play and engage you know connect.
And you hear that growing up and and and and I think that we bring that you can't help but bring that -- what you do and and we have that creative freedom to do to do that and it's always.
Been there and as we keep as we got along in the -- as we as we got more more successful.
That started to I think.
That that Latin flavor started to really we we kind of started to stretch out our -- a little bit you know and exercise that.
That little bit of creative.
Freedom that we had and so.
The Latin thing is is essential because I mean I grew up listening to -- -- crews and as well as Vicente Fernandez said.
And then spent -- you know Elvis Presley and and buck Owens and Hank Williams and.
The end and we pretty much have the same right and -- a grown up -- Grew up it's the same thing.
