Conjunto music legend Nick Villarreal is in the ICU on life support after being admitted to the hospital on Saturday (July 29).

According to sources, the musician, known to many of his fans as Nicky Snick, is in critical, but stable condition.

For many years, Villarreal has specialized in composing unmistakable, easy-going goofy cumbias, including songs about everything from Kool-Aid in “Koolaid Con Hielo” to former pro golfer Tiger Woods in “El Tiger Woods.”

In recent years, his health has declined considerably, a subject that he discusses in a 2013 interview with Rancho Alegre Radio.

Tejano Nation will have more details on Villarreal’s condition as they become available.
