Emilio Navaira After earning Male Entertainer of the Year for seven successive years at the Tejano Music awards, Emilio is the undisputed King of Tejano Music. Since leaving David Lee Garza y Los Musicales in 1989, Emilio’s rise was meteoric. His popularity and talent have earned him major promotional promo- tional contracts with Miller Brewing Co., Wrangler, GMC Trucks and Coca-Cola. He has earned several Grammy nominations and, since his jump from Tejano to country, Emilio has become the only artist with a major label to be signed to both the country and Latin divisions simultaneously. Reaping success and garnering national attention on both sides of the cultural divide, he sold over 500,000 copies of his first country album, “Life is Good.”
