Some of his singles, "Mi Niña Traviesa," "Será Mas Fácil," and "Escápate" have reached spots on Billboard charts. In September 2013 he released his debut album Con La Frente en Alto and with three weeks of its release, it earned a spot on the Billboard Regional Mexican Albums chart. It was certified gold in the Latin field by the RIAA for shipping 30,000 copies. Coronel won the award for "New Artist of the Year" at the 2014 Latin Billboard Music Awards.
Caro's initial break came after vocalist and cousin Gerardo Ortíz recorded a couple of his songs and brought him to the attention of Mexico's Del Records. The label signed him to a recording and publishing deal. Música Polvora y Sangre, his debut offering, appeared in 2011 to rave reviews and respectable chart success. Caro's alternative approach to writing gave his norteño and banda tunes irresistible hooks and unusual tuba lines. His 2012 follow-up, Amor en Tiempos de Guerra, received massive radio airplay and chart recognition. In August of 2013 he released his third album, Especialista.
