Header for 17 CD Baby Artists Nominated for the Latin Grammy 2021!

Independent musicians have been taking home Latin Grammys for some time now.

Yes, year after year, CD Baby clients — who create their music and run their careers without the support of major labels — have had a consistent presence on the biggest Latin music awards stage in the world.

These numbers are a clear reflection of the growing CD Baby community around the world! And it’s proof that staying independent does NOT mean anonymity or a limit to your success. Here at CD Baby we celebrate the Latin artists who who’ve allowed us to be a part in their musical journey.

In 2020, five CD Baby artists took home a trophy at the virtual ceremony. This year we congratulate seventeen CD Baby artists nominated for a Latin Grammy across 11 different categories. A major victory for the entire independent community!

Join us in celebrating this year’s CD Baby Latin Grammy nominees!
