“Love You Too Late” (Official Music Video)

Cole SwindellCole Swindell knows how to write hits for other artists — but he also knows how to release a No. 1 hit (make that quite a few of ’em, in fact) himself. In a phone interview with the Herald-Tribune, Swindell talked about his love of baseball and Florida, “All of It” and his friendship with Bryan. Here are excerpts.

As for Cole, he’s traveling across the country this summer as part of Luke Bryan ‘s tour. In fact, new dates and cities were just announced today allowing fans to hear the singer’s biggest hits live.

Just a few years ago, Cole Swindell made a few bucks selling merchandise for Luke Bryan’s tour while trying to break out as a country singer and songwriter. But this summer, the 33-year-old Bronwood, Georgia, native has graduated to arena shows of his own thanks to his hit Chillin’ It.” It’s a catchy, turn-it-up summertime ode to driving around with the good stuff iced up in the backseat.” While Swindell is no stranger to singing about fun times and beer—this is country music, after all—he takes a more emotional tone on his second album, You Should Be Here,” which debuted in May. Catch him on tour with Florida Georgia Line all summer.

As far as songs that other people have recorded of mine, that’s by the far the most special to me. I grew up every year going down to Panama City, and it was always around my birthday, June 30. We were always there in the summer, and Thomas Drive, that’s where we stayed and just did all the things you do on family vacation. It went from family vacation to high school to spring break down there. I have a lot of time spent in Florida, especially Panama City, and any time I can be around the water and be in that kind of weather, it takes me back.

Brandi Simms of the CMA was on hand to provide Swindell and the songwriters with their CMA No. 1 medallions. I knew more of his songs than I thought. He puts a very good concert on. Harrah’s is an excellent venue.

Separated from Bryan by seven years in age but only 15 minutes from where they grew up in Georgia, it wasn’t until he left the road and moved to Nashville that Swindell finally had the courage to share a song with the fraternity brother who gave him his first job in the music business.


To honor his dad, Swindell wrote “You Should Be Here” with Ashley Gorley, and the video features footage of the first time he visited his father’s grave in Georgia.

Swindell debuted his current single Love You Too Late” LIVE on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars and Jimmy Kimmel Live! the song was included on YouTube’s Best Country Songs of 2018.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., (October 16, 2018) — TaxSlayer and the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl alongside Mayor Lenny Curry and TaxSlayer Gator Bowl Chairman Jamie Shelton announced plans for the 2018 TaxSlayer Gator Bowl New Year’s Eve Celebration. The event will be anchored by the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl game, feature a post-game concert by Platinum-selling recording artist Cole Swindell, and conclude with fireworks at midnight to ring in 2019.

Not bad for a guy who just three years ago was selling merchandise on tour with Luke Bryan, whom he’d once opened some shows for in Georgia. But such was his drive that there wasn’t a wasted moment on the road. He watched Luke and every act he performed with, learning what worked with crowds, and he poured what he was learning into the songs he was writing.

Since launching his career in 2014, Swindell has toured with the biggest superstars in country music including Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley and has sold out all four of his Down Home Tours in support of each of his Down Home Session EPs (I, II, III and IV) and headlined two of his own tours in 2018 including his most recent Monster Presents, Cole Swindell & Dustin Lynch on the Reason To Drink…Another Tour with Lauren Alaina. In 2019 he is on the road again with superstar Luke Bryan on his Sunset Repeat Tour.

Gordon also recognized Warner Nashville’s Cris Lacy and Swindell’s manager Kerri Edwards for all their hard work. For many people, August 23 might seem like any other hot summer day, but for Cole Swindell, there is a lot of meaning behind the day.

Swindell is also gearing up to release Down Home Sessions V by releasing one song a month for five months. In June, he released Drinkin’ Hours, ” and in July, he dropped the track, All Nighter” Fans can stay tuned for additional new tracks over the next three months.


To be fair, the majority of the song is the word “work,” something Swindell noted in the interview. He also named Luke Bryan’s “Country Girl Shake it for Me” as another option.

In a post on his Instagram page, Cole tells the story of his arrival in Nashville and his subsequent journey to becoming a successful singer and songwriter.


One of my buddies Brandon Bissell runs a company, Ballpark Music, and we’ve done several events with them. It’s such a cool idea, I’d never heard of it, but it’s music in stadiums where there’s baseball, football. I’ve had the chance to play the Braves stadium, played outside of bowl games, played inside of a bowl game. And now to be at spring training, that’s something that I’ve never really gotten to experience enough of. I grew up a Braves fan, but I’m a baseball fan, so any time I can be around that, play some music and be a fan, it’s exciting.

including Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, and Dierks Bentley. He previously sold out his four Down Home Tours, and wrapped up his first career-headlining tour last spring.

Few things go together as well as whiskey and country music. This track has become an anthem for anyone who has found themselves being revisited by an ungrateful ex.

Now and then, a song and artist can’t be denied. Cole Swindell was nothing more or less than a terrific songwriter with a Nashville publishing deal and a growing reputation as one of the city’s most exciting young performers. Now, he’s on the road to stardom.

Everyone can relate to the feeling of enjoying a relationship, but know it’s not meant to last. “Break Up in the End,” too, is a song that Swindell did not write; rather, it was written by Jon Nite, Chase McGill and Jessie Jo Dillon.
