Los Palominos and Juan Treviño received nominations for the upcoming 18th annual Latin Grammy Awards. Nominations were announced on Tuesday (September 26), a week after being postponed due to the recent natural disasters in Mexico, Puerto Rico and the U.S.
Two-time Latin Grammy winners Los Palominos were nominated in the category of Best Norteño Album for their hugely successful album Píensalo, released in August 2016. The album spawned the hit singles “Me Muero”, “Cuando Te Enamoras”, “Tuyo Quiero Ser” and the title track “Píensalo”.
Treviño, a Houston-based singer-songwriter, received a nomination in the Best Mexican Regional Song category for his collaboration with AJ Castillo, “Siempre Es Así”. This category is awarded to the songwriter of the track listed. “Siempre Es Así” appears on Treviño’s album, Fragmentos, released this past January.
“Wow! I am speechless,” said Treviño from his studio where he continues to write new material for upcoming artists. “I want to thank all members of the Academy for their recognition. This is such a blessing God is sending to me.”
The category for Best Tejano Album will not be awarded this year due to low number of entries.
