Baldemar Huerta 
      American singer (b. June 4, 1937, San Benito, Texas—d. Oct. 14, 2006, Corpus Christi, Texas), scored number one hits on the country charts in 1975 with “Wasted Days and Wasted Nights” and “Before the Next Teardrop Falls,” which also reached number one on the pop charts. Born Baldemar Huerta, Fender changed his name when he signed with Imperial Records in 1959. Though he endured battles with drugs and alcohol during his career, he enjoyed critical success. He won Grammy Awards for his work as a member of the Texas Tornados (1990) and Los Super Seven (1998), and he won the Grammy for best Latin pop album for La Música de Baldemar Huerta (2001).
