Juan Luis Guerra earned six nominations for this year's edition of the Latin Grammy Awards. Two of the Dominican singer-songwriter's bids are for Song of the Year.
All four of the general field categories have been expanded to 10 nominees for the 13th annual kudofest which takes place on Nov. 15 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas and will be broadcast on Univision.
Jesse & Joy, sibling singers who hail from Mexico, landed five nods.
Juanes, a Colombian rock star, Guatemalan singer Ricardo Arjona and Brazilians Caetano Veloso and Ivete Sangalo each got four bids.
As a producer, Guerra shared an Album of the Year nod with Juanes for his "MTV Unplugged" disc. One of his tunes for Juanes, “Azul Sabina,” contends for Record of the Year. He also picked up two bids for “En El Cielo No Hay Hospital” (“In Heaven There Are No Hospitals”), an album of Christian music.
Jesse & Joy’s “Con Quien Queda el Perro?” (“Who Gets the Dog?”) also contends for Album of the Year as do Arjona’s "Independiente” Arturo Sandoval’s tribute to fellow trumpeteer Dizzy Gillespie, "Dear Diz (Every Day I Think of You),” and “Especial Ivete, Gil e Caetano,” an album of Brazilian tropicalia that features Caetano Veloso, the Latin Grammys person of the year.
