Featured Artist "Cole Swindell"
Raised in a town with one caution light and a population not much greater than that, Cole Swindell left Bronwood, Georgia with a lot of inspiration and just enough experience to begin his career while he was in school at Georgia Southern University.
While winning over the college crowd, Cole acquired a passion for the industry and hooked up with another Georgia artist and fellow Sigma Chi fraternity brother, Luke Bryan. The pair continued to play shows together at local venues around Georgia, and shortly after college Cole made the move to Nashville in September 2007 to pursue his dream of making a living doing what he loves.
Not long after leaving the peach state, Luke, now with Capitol Records, hired him and he spent the next three years on the road doing merchandise at shows and writing songs while he traveled the country on a tour bus. Luke Bryan's Spring Break EPs "Hangover Edition", "Shore Thing", and “Sun Tan City” included five cuts by Cole: "I'm Hungover”, "In Love with the Girl”, "Love in a College Town", "Shore Thing”, and “Shake The Sand” which are all available exclusively on iTunes.
Sony/ATV Music Publishing offered Cole a publishing deal in September 2010. He wrote radio single, "Water Tower Town" for American Idol winner Scotty McCreery, which is featured on his debut album "Clear As Day". His 2013 breakout hit "Chillin' It", & official music video debuted on November 10, 2013. In 2013, after his independently released single "Chillin' It" began to climb the charts, Swindell signed a record deal with Warner Music Nashville and will release his self-titled debut album on February 18, 2014.
