The 42nd annual Tejano Music Awards (TMAs) will return to a live show this fall after two years of virtual shows due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Texas Talent Musicians Association (TTMA), producers of the TMAs, announced Wednesday that “The Biggest Night in Tejano” will take place on Saturday, November 26, at the new Tech Port Center + Arena, San Antonio’s newest state-of-the-art facility.
TTMA President Robert Arellano stated, “It’s going to be great for the Tejano music industry and for the fans of Tejano, for this part of town and for tech port.”
It will be the first time the facility located in southwest San Antonio will host a major Tejano awards show. This year’s TMAs will feature 15 musical acts from across the country as it returns to a live show and brings attention to the best in Tejano music once again.
“The Tejano Music Awards Industry has not had this following in many, many years,” said Arellano. “We believe this is going to give a jump-start to the industry.”
Each year the Tejano Music Awards recognizes the artistic efforts and achievements of songwriters, performers, and musicians of the Tejano music industry.
Nominations are currently being accepted for this year’s Tejano Music Awards through July 31, 2022. Any musician, manager, record label, and artist representative may submit a nomination at TejanoMusicAwards.com/tma-nomination-form.
Tickets for the 42nd annual Tejano Music Awards go on sale at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, July 8, 2022, at techportcenter.com.
