Singer and songrwiter Juan Treviño won the Latin Grammy for Best Mexican Regional Song with “Siempre Es Así” featuring AJ Castillo at the 18th annual Latin Grammy Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada on Thursday. The award was announced during the Latin Grammy pre-show webcast.
“I am so humbled for all the blessings I’ve received this year,” Trevino told Tejano Nation. “I thank God for everything and to the members of the Latin Grammys for choosing my song as the Best Regional Mexican Song of the Year. It feels like I won two awards in a way, because it’s not only a song i wrote it’s also the first single off my latest album Fragmentos. I wanna thank everyone who was a part of this single. AJ Castillo, Rolando Benavidez, Candido Resendez and Carlos Alvarez. This is their award too. I’m glad I was able to bring the Latin Grammy to Texas a long with my good friends Los Palominos.”
Trevino, who has written many songs for many Tejano stars, takes home his first Latin Grammy Award for the lead single from his debut album, Fragmentos, released in January. “Siempre Es Así” features AJ Castillo lending his power-house and distinct accordion riffs on the track.
Treviño has composed some of the biggest hits in Tejano music for over 10 years. He has written hit songs for Los Palominos (Me Enamore De Un Angel), La Mafia (Amor Y Sexo), Vizzio (Para Demostrarte), Siggno (Te Acostumbraste A Estar Sin Mi), Grupo Solido (Soy Libre), David Lee Garza y Los Musicales (El Privilegio) Jay Perez (Un Amigo Tendras), Elida Reyna Y Avante and Solido (Atrevete Amarme), to name just a few.
The category for Best Tejano Album was not awarded this year due to low number of entries.
