Swindell gets "Down Home"

Friday, October 31, 2014 – , Cole Swindell, gearing up to launch his "Down Home Tour" next month, will put out a five-song EP, "Down Home Sessions" on Nov. 17.

“I'm always writing and I have lots of songs that I want my fans to hear. As a songwriter, that's what you want, but everything can't always make it onto your album so I decided the best way to release this music was to put together the "Down Home Session EP,'" he said. "The start of my ‘Down Home Tour’ seemed like the perfect time to put this collection together for the fans, not that I need an excuse to thank them for all the support they have given me over the past year.”

Releasing his self-titled debut album earlier this year on Warner, Swindell has sold 260,000 copies since February, while claiming the title of highest selling country debut since 2011 upon release. The album features Swindell's latest single, "Ain't Worth The Whiskey" plus his first two hits as a solo artist and back-to-back number one single: the gold certified "Hope You Get Lonely Tonight" and the Platinum certified "Chillin' It."

The EP songs are:
1) Ready
2) The Way You're Lovin' Me Now

CD reviews for Cole Swindell

All of It CD review - 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 CD review - 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 CD review - 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: There's a lot to be said about The Felice Brothers – The Felice Brothers have soldiered on, occupying the fringes of the musical world with ups and downs.

Concert Review: Turner bring it on (to his second) home – Frank Turner opined during the first of four sold-out nights of the Lost Evenings Festival that Boston was his home away from his British home. The likable, accessible singer hit the sweet spot not only with his perspective, but his performance as well demonstrated why. Turner made a major change in this year's festival. For the first time, he... »»»
