Celedón and his vallenato group were nominated for the Latin Grammy Awards in 2007. At the 8th Annual Latin Grammy Awards, Celedón and accordionist Jimmy Zambrano received the award in the category Cumbia/Vallenato for their album Son... Para El Mund. In 2008, he performed in front of President George W. Bush at an event at the White House in celebration of Colombian Independence Day.
