Mar 27, 2017USA TODAY and TENNESSEAN To World Premiere Cole Swindell’s “Flatliner” Video Featuring Dierks Bentley
“Flatliner” (7th Career Single) Is Follow-up to Six Consecutive No. 1 Singles
USA Today and the Tennessean partnered with Cole Swindell to world premiere “Flatliner,” the new video from the Platinum-selling, six-time No. 1 hit singer/songwriter and featuring his mentor/good friend and multi-Platinum, 15-time No. 1 chart-topping singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley. In front of a capacity crowd on Bentley’s 2017 What The Hell World Tour in Sioux Falls, SD, award-winning director Michael Monaco captured the live performance of the song.
Swindell shared his excitement about the making of this video with the Tennessean, “After kicking off the album with ‘You Should Be Here’ and how special that song was to me for so many reasons, I knew it would be hard top that feeling. Now, I find myself in a place every night having the opportunity to get up on stage with Dierks Bentley- one of my favorite artists and an artist I have looked up to as a mentor since before I moved to Nashville. Not only do I have this opportunity opening for his ‘What The Hell World Tour’ but he brings me out during his set to perform “Flatliner”- one of my songs. It’s unbelievable. Dierks is so gracious.
“I have said since the day this song was released that I wrote ‘Flatliner’ about four years ago with him in mind to record it. Never in my wildest dreams did I think he would record it with me for my own album one day. And here we are. This is such a fun, highly energized and, honestly, surreal moment each and every night of the tour for me that there was no question in my mind of how I wanted to capture this video.”
“Flatliner,” written by Swindell, Matt Brownleewe and Jaron Boyer, is the third single from Swindell’s sophomore album You Should Be Here which also includes his Platinum-selling, 1 Billion audience reaching multi-week No. 1 “You Should Be Here” and his sixth consecutive and most recent No. 1 and now Gold-certified “Middle of a Memory.” The Georgia native’s self-titled debut album included four consecutive No. 1 singles including the Gold-certified “Let Me See Ya Girl,” along with Platinum-certified hits “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight,” “Ain’t Worth The Whiskey,” and “Chillin’ It.”
Swindell is currently touring with Dierks Bentley’s 2017 What the Hell World Tour.
