Duane Dee reached the top fifty of the Country charts in 1968 with "Before the Next Teardrop Falls" (Keith - Peters) which was cut at Nashville's Columbia Recording Studio.

The Grammy winning, bi-lingual late Freddy Fender (Baldemar Huerta) version topped the Country and the Pop charts as well in 1975. Freddy has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and can be seen as an actor in Robert Redford's 1988 release "The Milagro Beanfield War". Good movie!
