Cole Swindell Strikes Gold With ‘You Should Be Here’
Cole Swindell has hit another major career highlight. His sophomore album, You Should Be Here, is certified Gold, selling 500,000 copies.
The album has spawned two chart-topping singles, including the title track, which is certified Platinum with more than a million sales, and the Gold-certified "Middle of a Memory." The singer's most recent single is "Flatliner," a collaboration with friend and country superstar Dierks Bentley.
You Should Be Here serves as the follow-up to Swindell's breakthrough self-titled debut album. That first compilation also features four hit singles, “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight,” “Ain’t Worth The Whiskey,” “Chillin’ It” and “Let Me See Ya Girl,” all of which claimed the No. 1 spot on Billboard's country charts.
Swindell, along with Jon Pardi, is currently on the road with Bentley as a supporting act on the 2017 What the Hell World Tour, which continues through summer.
“There’s a song on my album called ‘What the Hell Did I Say,’ and it seemed like an appropriate title for a tour with Cole and Pardi. I have a feeling I’ll be asking myself that question the morning after many of our shows and late night hangs because you really don’t know what will happen when the three of us get together,” Bentley says of his tour mates.
The "Middle of a Memory" singer received the news that the song had been Gold certified just before taking the stage for a sold-out crowd at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville during a stop on Bentley's tour. For a young star, Swindell has certainly seen a great deal of success. He's had six consecutive No. 1 singles, with each one being dubbed Gold or Platinum status.
