April Monterrosa and Adam Ace

This month, Live from the Southside Magazine will debut a special series dedicated to Latinos in country music, airing on The April Monterrosa Show on KLMO 98.9 FM at 9 a.m. Saturday, July 6th. Hosted by April Monterrosa, the show will feature interviews with local country artists from Southside San Antonio and surrounding areas, showcasing their music and personal stories. The show will also be streamed live on Facebook, YouTube, the KLMO 98.9 FM app, and Roku, expanding its reach to a broader audience.

April Monterrosa, the publisher of Live from the Southside Magazine, is a trailblazer in San Antonio, Texas, as the first woman to own a publication on the South Side. Monterrosa is a devoted country music fan eager to spotlight the Latino community’s incredible talent and diversity.

“So many Latinos in San Antonio and throughout Texas are incredibly talented. We must support our Latino artists, including those in the country music scene. Adam Ace and I are excited to hear these musical artists and their music in the KLMO studio,” said Monterrosa, emphasizing the pride and representation these artists bring to the Latino community.

The series starts with The Ranch Road Band, an Americana/Texas Country band from Atascosa County in South Texas that originated in 2017. Since their start, they have received numerous awards and nominations for their music. Their sound is a fusion of Country, Tex-Mex, Folk, and Rock with a splash of whatever the band feels like doing. The band has been busy on the road since the release of their latest album, “Road Rage,” which includes the single “Corpus Christi,” which reached charts in South Texas as well as New Mexico, Nevada, Birmingham, England, and Luxembourg, Germany. Ranch Road continues to tour Texas and beyond and is working on their next album release.

Tune in to KLMO 98.9 FM every Saturday at 9 a.m. to catch the debut of this exciting new series and support the talented Latinos in country music, making waves in the country music scene. You can also join the Latinos in Country Music Facebook Group to keep up with performances throughout the city and surrounding areas.
