Remember When? Juanes Wins Best New Artist Latin GRAMMY
A name synonymous with Latin music, it's hard to imagine a time when Juanes was just a fledgling singer/songwriter working his way up the ranks. But that's where the Colombian was before the 2nd Latin GRAMMY Awards.
On the strength of his debut solo album, Fijate Bien, Juanes racked up seven Latin GRAMMY nominations in 2001, including nods for Album Of The Year and Record and Song Of The Year for the album's title track.
The 2nd Latin GRAMMYs was slated to take place on Sept. 11, 2001, however, in light of the tragic events of the day, the show was canceled and a press conference was held at a later date where the Latin GRAMMY Awards were given out to their respective winners, including Juanes.
Juanes took home the coveted Latin GRAMMY for Best New Artist, along with Best Rock Solo Vocal Album and Best Rock Song. Since then, he has gone on to win 21 Latin GRAMMYs to date, making him one of the top Latin GRAMMY winners of all time, and two GRAMMY Awards.
