Swindell makes it clear - "You Should Be Here"
Monday, December 14, 2015
– Cole Swindell released a new song this morning.
"You Should Be Here" is the first single from the Georgian's sophomore disc, which presumably will be out in 2016.
Swindell has enjoyed much success with his debut, having scored three number one singles ("Chillin' It," "You Ain't Worth the Whiskey," "Hope You Get Lonely Tonight") and one number two ("Let Me See Ya Girl").
Swindell and Ashley Gorley penned the song, which was inspired by the sudden passing of Swindell's father.
"This is the song I came to Nashville to write," Swindell said. "It's not like anything I've written before. I'm extremely proud this is the first single from my next album. I think anyone can relate to this song for so many different reasons because we've all had moments that we wished someone special could have shared with us."
The video for "You Should Be Here" world premiered today exclusively at Yahoo.com/Music. Directed by Michael Monaco, the video was shot in Glennville, Ga. and follows Swindell's breakout year onto the music scene, mixed with his emotional homecoming visiting the cemetery, for the first time, where his dad is buried. Opening with a conversation with his dad about signing a record deal with Warner Music Nashville, the scenes flash through some of Swindell's career milestones, including his Grand Ole Opry debut to winning the 2015 ACM New Artist of the Year.

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. That being said, the overall texture is pop laden, ...
