Doug Sahm first used the name "Texas Tornado" in 1973, writing a song and naming an album after it. He first used it for a band in 1976, crediting Texas Rock for Country Rollers to Sir Doug & the Texas Tornados but the Texas Tornados didn't really become a group until 1990, when Sahm formed the Tex-Mex all-stars with his idol Freddy Fender, his right-hand man Augie Meyers, and Flaco Jiménez. Their first album released in two versions, one in English and one in Spanish caused a roots rock sensation upon its release, winning a Grammy for Best Mexican American/Tejano Performance for its track "Soy de San Luis" and helping to establish the band as a brand. Three albums followed quickly over the next six years the last, 4 Aces, appeared after a rush-released 1994 compilation The Best of Texas Tornados then the band faded away, turning into a touring concern and then an everlasting tribute to Sahm and Fender once those two giants passed away.
