They came out of San Angelo, Texas in what seemed like a sweet Texas whirlwind. But the backstory of "Los Lonely Boys" — multi-platinum Grammy winners on the road to superstardom — is not a story of overnight sensation.

It's a Mexican-American story of dreams and struggle and "Texican pride" — of a Chicano father who sang Johnny Cash, and three sons who asked how far heaven is for them and their people.

This hour On Point: the Texican sensation, Los Lonely Boys.

Quotes from the Show:

"Music is a way of life for us." Los Lonely Boys

"It's been a great nine years for us." Los Lonely Boys

Guests:

Henry, Jo Jo, and Ringo Garza — "Los Lonely Boys";
Arnold Garcia, editorial page editor at the Austin American-Statesman.
