Swindell, Lainey's "Never Say Never" goes to video
Wednesday, January 12, 2022
– Cole Swindell and Lainey Wilson released a video for their duet "Never Say Never" on YouTube and Facebook.
CMT will broadcast premiere the video on CMT Hot 20 Countdown on Saturday at 9 a.m. eastern.
Michael Monaco (FlyHi Films) produced the video, filmed at Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary outside of Knoxville.
"Never Say Never" was the most added song at country radio the week of release, giving both Swindell and Wilson their biggest radio add day of their careers.
The song, written by Swindell, Jessi Alexander and Chase McGill, is the Georgia native's follow-up radio single to his back-to-back number one hits "Love You Too Late" and most recently his 10th career number one hit "Single Saturday Night."
"Never Say Never" is also the follow-up single to Wilson's chart topper "Things A Man Oughta Know."
Lainey Wilson was named Billboard's Top New Country Artist of 2021, ACM 2022 New Female Artist of the Year, CMT's 2022 "Breakout Artist of the Year" and scored six CMA Awards nominations, some impressive achievements for a relatively new face on the country music scene.

"Never Say Never, a duet with Lainey Wilson, is the powerful centerpiece. The song is arranged so the two singers' lines snake around each other as a bona fide 80's power ballad unfurls ...
Cole Swindell's" All Of It" is a little different from many of contemporary artists' current releases in that there is a whole lot of country - thematically anyway - in it. The 40-plus minutes are all about drinking, regret, appreciation of people who matter and breakups.
It starts off with a bang with the up-tempo rocker "Love You Too Late." The best track is its most poignant song penned by Jessi Alexander and Chase McGill, "Dad's Old Number," ...
