Swindell makes Opry debut
Monday, October 13, 2014
– Cole Swindell made his debut on the Grand Ole Opry stage last week. His three song set included his two consecutive number one singles "Chillin It" and "Hope You Get Lonely Tonight," plus his latest, "Ain't Worth The Whiskey."
The songs were from his self-titled debut album released earlier this year on Warner Bros. Records.
After the special moment, he said, "Standing in that circle where other artists who have paved the way for country music has stood is something a new artist like me will never forget. Of all the places I have played so far in my career from a club to an arena to a stadium, I have never experienced a feeling like I did on that stage. I'm glad I was able to share that moment with my family and friends."
Wrapping up a run on Luke Bryan's Farm Tour, Swindell is currently on Bryan's Thats My Kind of Night Tour, and will continue on the road this winter with his own Down Home Tour, kicking off in November. Swindell also had the highest selling country debut upon release since 2011, the most played song of 2013 as well as one of the top country radio singles this year, with songwriting credits which include chart topping singles "This Is How We Roll" for Florida Georgia Line, "Get Me Some of That" for Thomas Rhett and Bryan's latest hit "Roller Coaster."

It features several chart toppers from other artists, including Luke Bryan's "Roller Coaster" and Thomas Rhett's "Get Me Some Of That." Swindell has 10 number 1 singles as a songwriter to his name had a hand in penning both all five songs, so technically, it's original material. »»»
Down Home Sessions III
Cole Swindell's third installment of the "Down Home Sessions" EP series is a relatable five-track thread that feels like bro country light; There's plenty of beer and bars, but only one truck song ("Chevrolet DJ"), and the narrative thread including failed pickup lines, first date jitters and jealousy can be interpreted as applicable to one girl and the early stages of a relationship rather than the gaggle.
