Cole Swindell

Cole Swindell has come a long way from his post-Georgia Southern University gig as college buddy Luke Bryan’s merch guy. In 2013, his self-titled debut album propelled him to the upper echelon of the country music scene as it produced three consecutive #1 hits – “Chillin’ It,” “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight” and the rollicking “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey.” (The fourth single, “Let Me See Ya Girl,” seems soon to follow.) Even if you have somehow managed to miss his songs on the radio, you’re certainly familiar with his songwriting - Cole has written #1 hits for other artists, including “Get Me Some of That” by Rhett Thomas, “This Is How We Roll” by Florida Georgia Line and Luke Bryan, and 2015’s widely-acclaimed megahit “Roller Coaster” by Luke Bryan. His down-home genuine appeal and subtle intellect allow him to veer seamlessly from rocking party songs to the more sensitive side of songwriting. Don’t miss country’s finest from one of its rising superstars! - See more at:

Did anyone else check out Wilco at The Rave last night? It was one of the best shows I have seen all year. They sounded great and the crowd was really into it. Kudos boys!
