ENTRE EL AMOR Y YO was nominated for a 1999 Grammy for Best Mexican-American Music Performance.
True to his humble origins, ranchera idol Vicente Fernandez has always kept the satisfaction of his fans as his ultimate goal. Live, he doesn't stop singing as long as the audience continues to applaud him, to the distress of stage managers worldwide who see his performances go two or three hours overtime. And Fernandez applies the same philosophy to his recorded output--he releases an album of high quality rancheras a year.
Released in 1998, ENTRE EL AMOR Y YO is different from other Fernandez releases, because it contains "Golondrina Sin Nido," a duet with son Alejandro, a pop star in his own right. Other highlights include the Teodoro Bello composition "Entre el Amor y Yo," about Vicente's pact with a personified version of romantic love, and "Y Me Vieron Llorar," the story of a man who feels utterly humiliated when his friends see him cry over the loss of a woman.
