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!
