Before a new crop of GRAMMYs are handed out, hear from past winners about what it's like to receive the coveted honor.

Intocable won the best Norteño album GRAMMY for its 2009 album "Classic."

INTOCABLE'S RICKY MUÑOZ: “The [award] was a very humbling surprise for us. 'Classic' was an album that meant so much because we collaborated on it with Ramon Ayala, an artist we always looked up to. So it was our version of a tribute to someone that has given our culture so many musical gifts. We were overjoyed to be in competition with the artists in our category and beyond excited to be recognized by the [Recording] Academy. It impacted our careers only in the sense that we felt the mainstream world was finally recognizing our efforts, but it didn’t change things creatively for us. We still work the same way. We go into the studio and leave behind all the accolades and concentrate on our one love—to provide good music to our fans.”
