Country Superstar, Cole Swindell took over the BB&T Pavilion as Direct Support for Florida Georgia Line on their Dig Your Roots Tour in Camden, NJ. Swindell launching into his unfortunately short 10-song set due to him being Direct Support on the tour rather then headlining with one of his hits “Down Home Boys” off his Self-titled debut studio album. His 10 song setlist included songs from both his Self-Titled Debut album & the recently released Billboard chart topping album, You Should Be Here. He continued with “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight,” as the music video played in the background LCD screens across the entire stage. He then continued by thanking the crowd for giving him his second No. 1 song. Followed by “Up,” which he interacted with the fans by shaking hands, selfing with fans, and singing directly to fans along with having them clap along. Swindell then explaining graciously that “I wish I could describe the feeling being up here,” as a massive smile filled his face which also didn’t leave his face his entire set showing his appreciated and gratitude for his fans support. His breakthrough hit, “Chillin’ It” made for a huge sing along with everyone in attendance, even the venues video crew singing along. Swindell then performed his latest radio single “Middle of a Memory,” before picking the pace back up to play “Let Me See Ya Girl.” Although Cole Swindell is not a newbie in the country music scene as he wrote hits for Luke Bryan, Scotty McCreery, Thomas Rhett, & even co-wrote a song for tour headliner themselves Florida Georgia Line. Cole Swindell got to perform one of these hits in front of the sold out crowd at the Dig Your Roots Tour in Camden, NJ, He played Thomas Rhett’s “Get Me Some Of That” which he wrote for Rhett. Swindell is on his way to Country Music Superstardom and it shouldn’t be long till he is headlining arenas or amphitheaters on his own. Continuing with the party anthem “No Can Left Behind,” before turning it down a bit for a very emotion filled song and the title track of his latest album, You Should Be Here. His fans then lighting up the entire BB&T Pavilion with their iPhone flashlights, and Swindell was very moved by this gesture saying “I see your cell phones. Thank you all so much,” and went on to dedicate the song to anybody who has lost anybody special in their lives. During the entire opening verses of the song “You Should Be Here,” Swindell sang facing the sky as this song was written about his dad who past away, so I am sure this song is emotion filled nightly when performing bringing back memories. Swindell has definitely made his dad proud with that mega-hit which took to radio super quickly and took off launching him into even higher success. Ending his set with yet another one of his hits “Aint Worth The Whiskey,” which he dedicated to everyone serving the country, along with the local heroes which included the Police and Fire Departments. Adding an additional verse with “Cheers to a good country song,” as the audience served as his choir serenading him as he exited the stage. Swindell’s production was on point as well with great lights, and his logo center stage that illuminated to match the stage lighting. Cole Swindell is a country artist not to miss when he is on tour in your city, Definitely get out and see him on this tour with Florida Georgia Line or on any of his upcoming tours!
