MIAMI — The Latin Recording Academy announced all the nominees for the 23rd annual Latin GRAMMYs on Tuesday (Sept. 20), including Best Tejano Album.
The category has five nominees including last year’s category winner El Plan with Despreciado. Grupo Alamo receives their third Latin GRAMMY nomination with Camino Al Progreso and Bobby Pulido received his fourth nomination with his Para Que Baile Mi Pueblo EP. Two rising stars in Tejano received their first Latin GRAMMY nomination as Destiny Navaira was recognized for Dime Cómo Se Siente and Isabel Marie for her Una Ilusión EP.
The Latin GRAMMYs are the preeminent international honor and the only peer-selected award celebrating excellence in Latin music voted on by The Latin Academy’s international membership body of music creators who represent all genres and creative disciplines, including recording artists, songwriters, producers, mixers, and engineers.
“At The Latin Recording Academy we continually strive to support and encourage Latin music creators, and these nominees epitomize musical excellence and represent the great momentum that our music is currently experiencing,” said Manuel Abud, CEO of The Latin Recording Academy. “We are proud to present the nominations with this diverse group of talented artists, who reflect the evolution of our Academy as a modern and relevant institution, and officially kick off the twenty-third season of the Latin GRAMMY Awards.”
The 23rd Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards nominees were selected from more than 18,000 entries across 53 categories, and reflect an expansive range of artists who released recordings during the eligibility period (June 1, 2021, through May 31, 2022). All songs that are considered for nominations must be new songs and contain a minimum percentage of lyric content (51%) in Spanish, Portuguese, or any of the indigenous dialects of our region.
The final round of voting to determine Latin GRAMMY winners will begin on September 30. The Latin Academy will host the 23rd Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards on Thursday, November 17, 2022, from the Michelob ULTRA Arena at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. The telecast will air live on Univision beginning at 8 p.m. ET/PT (7 p.m. Central). Preceding the telecast is the Latin GRAMMY Premiere ceremony, a long-established afternoon full of unforgettable performances and heartfelt acceptance speeches, where the winners in most categories will be announced.
