Freddy Fender’s Back With His Song “Before the Next Teardrop Falls”

0  comments

Freddy Fender began his career in 1959 by releasing his first single “Wasted Days and Wasted Nights.” However, Fender’s career was short-lived because of his actions. In the following year, Fender together with his bandmates was caught because of illegal possession of Marijuana. This, therefore, put a temporary stop on his career. After three years in prison, he temporarily released with the condition that he must not go to places where alcohol is served.

Instead of going back to recording songs Fender attended college, but he sings during the weekend on local shows.

The Song That Push Freddy Fender to The Spotlight

In 1974, Fender recorded the song “Before the Next Teardrop Falls” in two different languages. After its release, the single became a hit. For the first time in his career, he scored his first number one song on the country and pop chart. Furthermore, “Before the Next Teardrop Falls” secured spots on charts outside of the US.

After the success of his single, he began releasing songs that also entered the Top 10 and even the top of the Billboard charts.

“Before the Next Teardrop Falls”

The song that made Fender famous was written by Vivian Keith and Ben Peters in 1967. The first recording of the song was in 1968 by Duane Dee. His recording secured a spot on the Billboard chart. After his initial success, many artists began to cover the song. Some artists known to follow Dee’s original version were Jerry Lee Lewis, Linda Martell and more.

The song tells the story of a man who’s willing to be there for the woman he loves. However, the sad part about the song is that the woman is with another man. The narrator, despite knowing this, is willing to do anything to make her happy.

The Album

Fender not only released his song “Before the Next Teardrop Falls” as a single. He followed it with his album Before the Next Teardrop Falls. The album received a wide success and hit number one on the country chart. It was even gold-certified by RIAA.

Fender’s album also contained his another number one hit single “Wasted Days and Wasted Nights.”
