GMA Concert Series: Los Lonely Boys

Los Lonely Boys, with a blend of Tex-Mex, Metallica and '60s style rock 'n' roll, have been burning up the charts lately. The band recently came down to "Good Morning America's" Times Square studio to play their Grammy-nominated hit, "Heaven," for the "Good Morning America Gets Hot" concert series.

The three Garza brothers -- Henry on guitar, Jojo on bass, and Ringo on drums -- started playing music when they were children in west Texas. Their biggest musical influences range from the Everly Brothers to Willie Nelson to Santana. But the one who had the biggest impact on them was their father.

Ringo Garza Sr. and his seven brothers were part of a group called The Falcones in the 1970s and '80s. His sons grew up on the road. Touring with their father's band, they learned how to play instruments and eventually became their dad's backup group.

Ten years later, they released their self-titled debut album, "Los Lonely Boys." The album took more than a year to break through to audiences. But when it finally got noticed, it reached the top 10 on Billboard's pop albums chart, produced a top 40 and Grammy-nominated hit, and sold more than 1 million copies.

Los Lonely Boys have earned four Grammy nominations, including record of the year for "Heaven" and best new artist. They will perform live at the 47th annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 13. Here is a list of their upcoming appearances:

Friday, Feb. 4 -- Jacksonville, Fla.: Radisson River Walk with Willie Nelson
