Join #ACCAwards Breakthrough Artist Nominee @ColeSwindell for a Country Music #CMchat 12/10

Country Music #CMchat is breaking out the bottles on Wednesday, December 10th at 12pPT/3pET, for a Humpday Hookup with Cole Swindell — a man who is certainly worth the whiskey! An American Country Countdown Awards Breakthrough Artist Finalist, Cole has made his mark on country music with hit after hit (both as a songwriter and vocalist), recently solidifying his spot as a CRS New Face of 2015. We are beyond thrilled to share the digital stage with this Warner Music Nashville recording artist for a Twitterview!

A simple man from a small town in Georgia, Cole Swindell never imagined he would be where he is today. The Georgia State University alumnae graduated with a degree in marketing and put his education to good use when he became the merch man for one of his Sigma Chi brothers: Luke Bryan. Though his textbooks taught him about promotions, Cole decided to pursue his love for music, not realizing he was paving the path to becoming his own brand that would require outside marketing soon enough. He began as a songwriter, tucked away behind the scenes, penning songs such as Craig Campbell’s “Outta My Head”; Luke Bryan’s “Just a Sip”, “Beer in the Headlights”, “Roller Coaster”, “Out Like That”, “I’m Hungover”, “I’m in Love with the Girl”, “Love in a College Town”, “Shore Thing”, “Shake the Sand” and “The Sand I Brought to the Beach”; Thomas Rhett’s “Get Me Some of That”; and Scotty McCreery’s “Water Tower Town” and “Carolina Eyes”. He also co-wrote Florida Georgia Line’s “This Is How We Roll” with Luke Bryan and Chris Young’s “Nothin’ but the Cooler Left”. With that many songs avoiding the cutting room floor so early in his career, Cole decided to independently released his own first single, “Chillin’ It”. With this song that eventually rose to Number 1, Warner Music Nashville took notice of the small town kid and signed him to its label. Under Warner, Cole released his self-titled debut album (which has garnered two more singles so far – “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight” and “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey”). After scoring his record deal and releasing his album, he took his music out on the road, sharing the stage with longtime friend and fraternity brother, Luke Bryan, as well as fellow Georgian, Lee Brice, on the That’s My Kinda Night Tour. When the tour came to a close, Cole released a new EP, Down Home Sessions, which is also the name of his first headlining tour.

  1. Thank you @JenSwirsky for sharing about @coleswindell. Attending his VIP Meet & Greet @cainsballroom in Tulsa, OK part of the #downhometour is a highlight of 2014. It’s awesome to see a singer/songwriter perform. The fire energy Cole Swindell performs on stage with can be felt many feet away. Being right next to the stage, the heat is strong & his band magnifies the flame. Seeing him again to close out 2014 NYE in Duluth, GA @WildBillsATL is worth the flight. Look forward to the CMchat with him.
