Cole Swindell Celebrates Seventh Consecutive No. 1 Single
Lucky number seven seems to sit pretty for Cole Swindell as he partied with friends and family in downtown Nashville to honor his No. 1 hit, “Flatliner.”
The addictive rock-country smash ascended its way up the charts earlier this summer and earned Swindell his seventh consecutive chart-topping song. Not only does Swindell hold the accolades of that capacity under his belt, but he also is the first artist to reach the feat with every single he launched to country radio.
“When you dream of something, you don’t think it’s going to happen like this. Every song we’ve put out has somehow reached the top of the charts. That comes from a lot of support. It’s a dream come true. Seven in a row. That’s a lot of teamwork and a lot of people on our side and having great co-writers. That’s what these number one parties are about. They’re about the people who wrote the song, and I’ve got two great ones right here,” Swindell told Sounds Like Nashville and other media at the No. 1 party.
Written by Swindell and his buddies, Jaron Boyer and Matt Bronleewe, they always knew the track needed a strong collaboration presence based on its tongue-in-cheek lyrics. Swindell begged for years to grab his hero and now friend, Dierks Bentley, for a rowdy good time on “Flatliner” and took the song to another level for all involved.
“Everybody knows by now, especially after the song’s been out and me talking about Dierks– huge fan of him,” Swindell gushed. “Being out there getting to perform my current single pretty much the whole tour, every night going out there with his band, getting to do that in front of those huge crowds. All you can ask for when you have a song out there, I know from the songwriters side and the artist side, any opportunity to play that song in front of a bunch of people is huge for you. We got to do that every night. It was always a lot of fun.”
The smile on Swindell’s face throughout the celebration shined bright as he toasted to the songwriting team for their energy in the room that day and his promotions department for all of their devoted time to make “Flatliner” into a massive success.
Swindell then mingled with industry folks and enjoyed his afternoon of accomplishments before headlining Tootsie’s 57th Birthday Bash right in the heart of downtown Nashville. Taking over Broadway with his dynamic set, the street packed in fans from all around who just wanted to get a little crazy on a Tuesday night in the city.
The next radio single Swindell set his sights on is “Stay Downtown,” off his sophomore release, You Should Be Here.
