Swindell gets Down to Earth (on tour anyway)
Monday, November 4, 2019
– Cole Swindell, who has 11 number one songs to his credit will hit the road in
March for the Down To Earth Tour.
Shows get underway on March 5, 2020 in Toledo, Ohio. Joining Swindell are special guests HARDY and Trea Landon.
"I have had such an amazing year in so many ways," said Swindell. "I never think each year can top the previous, but it does. To earn another career number one last week with 'Love You Too Late' and then the response and honors that 'Break Up In The End' received this year has blown me away and, of course, the opportunity to get to tour again with my buddy Luke Bryan has been a blast. I'm so fired up for 2020 to get back out there with two new artists whose music I just love and am really excited about. HARDY, Trea and I already have some fun things planned for this tour. The fans better get ready because this tour is for them."
Since he launched his career in 2014, the Warner Music Nashville recording artist has toured with Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line and Dierks Bentley. The Georgia native first headlined in 2018 with his Reason To Drink Tour and co-headlined the Reason To Drink....Another Tour with Dustin Lynch.

He helped write Morgan Wallen's PLATINUM "Up Down" (featuring Florida Georgia Line), FGL's 2X PLATINUM "Simple," Chris Lane's GOLD "I Don't Know About You" and Shelton's PLATINUM "God's Country."
Landon, a Georgia native, moved to Nashville in 2015 and landed a publishing deal within four weeks of his arrival. A major label deal with Warner Music Nashville followed just two years later, which he recently celebrated with the release of his debut single "Loved by a Country Boy" and several other tracks including "Get The Girl" and "What Feelin' Good Feels Like."

CD reviews for Cole Swindell
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: Evans brings the cheer
What's a country song without drinking? Morgan Evans seems to have gotten the missive loud and clear as a good chunk of his songs incorporate libations into the mix.
And when the Australian-bred singer isn't confronting drinking, he's dealing with matters of the heart, but in keeping with the positive attitude he purveyed, love is most... »»»
Concert Review: Lambert smiles, dances the night away
Miranda Lambert didn't perform "Tin Man," one of her best, but also one of her saddest songs during this Wildcard tour stop. It's a song sung from the perspective of one who is sad that she has a heart that can be broken. That's not the current condition of Lambert's heart, though. She's apparently in a good... »»»
