Tuesday, September 2, 2014
– Cole Swindell will launch the "Down Home Tour" this winter kicking off Nov. 17 in Florida and ending Dec. 20 in Indiana.
. The five-week run of shows will feature newcomer Kelleigh Bannen, who is currently supporting her new single, "You Are What You Love."
Swindell just debuted his new music video for his hit single "Hope You Get Lonely Tonight," the second release off his self-titled album. Swindell, a Georgia native, enjoyed a Platinum selloing chart topper with "Chillin' It."
"It has been a crazy whirlwind year, and I feel so fortunate that country music fans and country radio has embraced me in such a huge way. It's what an artist dreams about," said Swindell. "I've been lucky enough to get a jump start performing alongside Luke Bryan in front of massive crowds, and while I wouldn't change anything for the experience I've gained so far, I know I still have a lot of work to do on the road."
"I'm really excited to get to it on my Down Home Tour this winter where I'll have a new experience with my fans at shows."
Swindell, who has sold 2 million tracks and more than 220,000 albums since its February release, had the highest selling country debut since 2011.

All of It
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," »»»
Down Home Sessions EP
Upon first glance at the track list of Cole Swindell's fourth installment of the "Down Home Sessions" series, one may get the impression that it is a covers EP. 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. That being said, the overall texture is pop laden, »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: The Head and the Heart go beyond the nah nahs
"Nah nah," "la la" and "Wee oh" populated a number of songs from The Head and the Heart.
Yes, the Seattle-based band does pen a good amount of sing-along songs that were clearly designed that way. And while that style can certainly engage and energize a crowd, there was more to that from the sextet.... »»»
Concert Review: Underwood leads a night of women in country
Carrie Underwood may have been off the road for three years, during which time she had two boys and did not release an album until "Cry Pretty" 13 months ago, but the most successful American Idol contestant has lost none of her vocal luster to say the least in her Cry Pretty 360 Tour.
First and foremost, Underwood remains one tremendous... »»»
