Cole Swindell performed for some VERY lucky Southwest Airlines passengers today before gearing up for his sophomore album release party! “You Should Be Here” is being called the song defining his career, and Cole himself said that this is the song he “came to Nashville to write”. “You Should Be Here” was the first single of his new album and it’s already held at No. 1 on the charts for multiple weeks, sold nearly half a million tracks, and surpassed 25 million streams.
Cole announced via Twitter today that he would be participating in Southwest Airline’s #LiveAt35 series.

If you follow Cole on snapchat, you got a preview of his “mile-high” performance earlier today! (I’ve always wondered what people who are non-country fans think of these Southwest Performances. Cole isn’t the first artist to do one!)
You Should Be Here is available everywhere tonight at midnight (May 6th, 2016), but those who pre-ordered (like myself of course!) have already gotten a download of 5 of the 12 amazing songs! See the track listing below! I’m obviously loving “Flatliner” with Dierks Bentley, “Stars”, and I’ve always loved “Middle of a Memory” from hearing it live at his shows. Actually, “Middle of a Memory” will be the second single released off this album! Can’t wait to convince my radio station to add it! 😉
- Middle Of A Memory
- Broke Down
- Home Game
- Cut 6: Party Wasn’t Over
- Stay Downtown
- You Should Be Here
- Making My Way To You
- No Can Left Behind
- Remember Boys
I have been a huge fan of Cole since the early summer of 2013, when he filled in for Thompson Square on the “That’s My Kind of Night” tour with Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line. “Chillin’ It” had just been released to radio, and I knew from day one he was going to make it big. I was lucky enough to witness his very first ACM week performance at the Party For A Cause in Las Vegas in April of 2014 and I stated then…. “Mark my word, Cole is going to be the New Artist of the year in 2015.” Indeed he was. I’ve believed in this Georgia boy since the very beginning and I will support wherever his journey takes him!
