Premio Lo Nuestro will be honoring one of regional Mexican music’s most beloved acts this year. Remezcla is exclusively announcing that Intocable will receive the Premio a la Excelencia next month at the ceremony.
Intocable hails from Zapata, Texas. After emerging in the ‘90s, the Mexican-American group has scored countless hits, becoming a legend in the regional Mexican music scene. One of Intocable’s biggest classics is “Aire” from their 2005 album Diez. Throughout its career, Intocable has won 24 trophies at Premio Lo Nuestro, including the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award in 2019. The group holds the record for the band with the most Premio Lo Nuestro trophies in the banda and norteño genres.
On Thursday, Feb. 23, Intocable will receive the Premio a la Excelencia for being a pioneering group who have and will continue to pave the way for the next generation of Mexican-American acts. In addition to being honored with an award, the band will also perform a medley of their greatest hits. Intocable’s performance will include special guests.
“We are super honored that the industry shows us this sign of acceptance,” Intocable shared in a statement with Remezcla. “More than an honor, the Premio a la Excelencia reflects the years of hard work, non-stop hours in the studio, and shows us that the music we create with so much love and care has endured in the hearts of the people.”
As a testament to Intocable’s staying power, the band is nominated for Norteño Song Of The Year – Regional Mexican this year. The group’s latest hit, “Si Me Duele Que Duela,” is up for the award. Intocable faces competition from Eden Muñoz, Joss Favela, Calibre 50, Alfredo Olivas, and La Fiera de Ojinaga.
The full nominations for Premio Lo Nuestro were announced last week. Colombian pop star Sebastían Yatra is the most-nominated artist of the year with 10 nods. He is followed by Bad Bunny, Camilo, Becky G, and Grupo Firme, who scored nine nominations each. The awards will air live from the Miami-Dade Arena on Feb. 23. Premio Lo Nuestro will be broadcast on Univision at 7 p.m. ET.
