Geronimo Entertainment presents The Mavericks with special guest Kelly Prescott
Fusing traditional country with a rich variety of rock, pop, and Latin influences, the Mavericks became one of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful groups of the early '90s. They hit their stride with 1994's What a Crying Shame, a critical and commercial breakthrough that was a grand showcase for the rich, emotive vocals of and the band's eclectic but accessible approach. The album spawned four singles that landed in the country Top 40 and earned them the freedom to expand their sound on 1995's Music for All Occasions, another success on radio and with fans. They edged away from country into a more distinctive fusion of Latin and pop flavors on 1998's Trampoline, and while it wasn't as commercially successful in the United States as their previous two long-players, it was a major success in the U.K., and earned them a large fan base overseas. The group's run of hits faded in the 21st century, and they spent most of the 2000s on hiatus, yet they still held on to a loyal fan base who embrace the group's enthusiastic eclecticism. Releases like In Time (2013) and Mono (2015) eased back on the country side of their personality in favor of Latin and pop accents, but they still bore the trademarks of 's vocals and the group's expressive, creatively restless approach.
