Veteran Latin musician Juan Luis Guerra is leading the nominations at this year's Latin Grammy awards.
Guerra said he was 'honoured' to be nominated for five awards
Guerra, from the Dominican Republic, earned five nominations, including album and song of the year, while Ricky Martin and Calle 13 received four each.
