Lares commented, “Words cannot express how grateful I am for this recognition. Especially since it’s from my hometown SAN ANTONIO. These past 40 years I have given so much of myself to my genre. I can’t tell you how much I love Tejano music and Tejano music fans. This award also recognizes my commitment, time, energy, and help for our upcoming artists. I take it seriously, cause I believe in the future and in new talent.”

“Although I won’t be on the road after 2022 I will still be on the sidelines contributing to Tejano music,” she said. “I have other passions I’ll be pursuing as well, but tonight was a beautiful gesture that shows me my hard work and dedication hasn’t gone unnoticed.”
