South Tx Homies burst on the music scene earlier this year with the release of their debut album, It’s Time, in April and the group received a nomination on Tuesday for Best Tejano Album at the 21st Latin GRAMMY Awards.
“There’s been a series of events that have led up to his moment,” South TX Homies accordionist Anthony Treviño tells Tejano Nation about the nomination.
“Everything happens for a reason,” said Treviño. “The whole process, getting picked up by M Group, them believing in what we’re doing, believing in me, and getting the guys that we got.”
South TX Homies members include guitarist Luis Flores, drummer Javier Torres, vocalist Andrew Rodriguez, and bassist Jesse “Chuy” Flores.
“Having him on board we just really took our time with the album,” said Trevino. “We were able to put out a great album. We’re very proud of it.”
The album reached the top spot of the iTunes Regional Mexican Albums sales chart less than 24 hours after its release.
South TX Homies are already working on their sophomore album and are planning to release a new single in October that will focus on the current pandemic.
“COVID has kind of hit a lot of people pretty hard,” Trevino said. “People have been dealing with a lot of losses and we just felt like this song, we wanted to put out and we kind of did our own rendition of it. I can’t release the title yet but it’s a very beautiful song. One thing I will say is that we partnered up with a mariachi for this song.”
The final round of voting to determine Latin GRAMMY winners will begin Oct. 8. Winners will be revealed by The Latin Recording Academy on Nov. 19 at the 21st Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards’ Premiere and telecast ceremonies.
The 21st Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards telecast will air live on Univision at 8 p.m. ET/PT (7 p.m. CT). With the theme “Music Makes Us Human,” the reimagined telecast will be anchored from Miami with uplifting performances from multiple cities around the world.
