Ranchero Hits

"Música Ranchera" is nothing else than Rancher Music, but as it is a music genre (A lead singer or singers with a Mariachi or a Band background) it should be translated as Ranchero(a).
Exitos means Hits.
I hope it helps.

Ranchero Hits

"exito", which usually means "success" means a hit song or recording in this context. A "ranchero" is a love song "ranch style", equivalent to western music in the U.S. This type of music is very popular in northern Mexico and was made popular in the U.S. by Vicente Fernandez, Ramon Ayala, and others.

Ranchera hits

Te mando un ejemplo tomado de una página web de música en inglés:
"Music : Ranchera Advanced Search Items".
Para resolver el problema de traducción prefiero guiarme por el uso que hacen los angloparlantes.

Mexican Country Hits

You could just use Ranchero Hits though. Most people who need explanation will understand the phrase above, but most people who would buy the CD wont need the explanation. Ranchero music is often associated with Mariachi bands by people in the US, though it is not quite the same thing. Mariachis in the US do tend to play ranchero music as well as traditional mariachi music. You might check with your client to see whether they prefer the above phrase, or want to just use the phrase Ranchero Hits. Most folks in the southern part of the US (nearest Mexico and Latin America) will understand that phrase. Hope this helps.

Ranchero music hits

as mentioned by the other people, you should not use country, because country music is a totally different kind of music, and rancheras are as mentioned before, music played by mariachis, I could not give you any references, but I am Mexican, and I know my music :-)
