    While CMA Awards' “New Artist of the Year” nominee, Cole Swindell, is gearing up to launch his "Down Home Tour" next month, the breakout artist will also release a special fan EP, called the Down Home Sessions on November 17th via Warner Bros Records. Comprised of five songs (track listing below), the digital album will be released in connection with his first solo run of tour dates this winter, which follows up his nationwide arena and stadium trek with Luke Bryan.
     
    “I'm always writing and I have lots of songs that I want my fans to hear. As a songwriter that's what you want, but everything can't always make it onto your album so I decided the best way to release this music was to put together the Down Home Session EP,” explains Swindell. “The start of my ‘Down Home Tour’ seemed like the perfect time to put this collection together for the fans, not that I need an excuse to thank them for all the support they have given me over the past year.”
     
    Along with the Down Home Sessions EP, Swindell will also introduce his new fan club, The Down Home Crew. Fans can sign up on his website which allows access to exclusive items such as online store discounts, access to presale tickets and meet & greets, as well as up to date information about all things Cole Swindell. Down Home Crew members will also get early access to the VIP experience at headlining shows (where available).
     
    Releasing his self-titled debut album earlier this year on Warner Bros. Records, Swindell has sold 260,000 copies since only February, while claiming the title of highest selling country debut since 2011 upon release. The album features Swindell’s latest single, “Ain’t Worth The Whiskey,” along with his first two hits as a solo artist and back-to-back No. 1 singles: the gold certified “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight,” and the platinum certified “Chillin’ It.” Named Music Row’s Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year for 2014, Swindell’s celebrated songwriting credits also include hit songs such as “This Is How We Roll” for Florida Georgia Line, “Get Me Some of That,” the No. 1 single for Thomas Rhett, several songs with Luke Bryan including his latest No. 1 single “Roller Coaster,” among others. As the only debut artist with a No. 1 country radio single in 2014, his debut hit “Chillin’ It” remains one of the most played songs on country radio this year, racking up almost 1.3 million sales of more than 2.1 million total tracks sold. Recently making his Grand Ole Opry debut, Swindell will head back out on the road in 2015 with Jason Aldean’s “Burn It Down” tour.

    Jason Aldean’s previously sold out BURN IT DOWN TOUR will continue into 2015, and the smash hit that gave the red-hot tour its name is now No. one on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase radio charts. The two-time ACM “Male Vocalist Of The Year” will kick off the next leg's 23-city run presented by Live Nation on Feb. 12 in Greenville, SC with special guests Cole Swindell and Tyler Farr. Fans can now purchase tickets for the first announced dates at www.jasonaldean.com with more details to be revealed over the next few weeks.

    “We are coming off a big album release week, and we wanted to keep the momentum rolling and get this next leg of the tour announced,” Aldean said. “Cole and Tyler are two of the hottest up-and-coming artists out right now, and I really dig what they do in their live shows. They are also just great friends, so it'll be cool to have them out and see what kind of trouble we can get into together.”
     
    Critics around the country agree this is Aldean's ”most explosive tour ever" (Rolling Stone) and a "game changing run" (Billboard).
     
    First Announced Cities on the 2015 BURN IT DOWN TOUR:
    Greenville, SC

    The certified PLATINUM single “Burnin’ It Down” became the fastest selling country single of 2014, holding the No. one position on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart for nine weeks. The track serves  as the lead single off Aldean’s recently released sixth studio album OLD BOOTS, NEW DIRT, which debuted at No. one on Billboard's all-genre Top 200 chart, breaking the record for both first-day and first-week streams ever by a country album on Spotify.

    To date, Aldean has sold over nine million albums and has taken 14 trips to No. one. Each of his albums has been certified PLATINUM and he has been officially recognized as the top digital male country artist in history with over 21.5 million in digital sales. Aldean’s upcoming tour follows a monumental first leg, which saw him play five stadium dates in addition to sold-out shows in the country's biggest amphitheaters and arenas.  
     
    Breakout country artist and CMA Awards' “New Artist of the Year” nominee Cole Swindell released his self-titled debut album earlier this year, claiming the title of highest selling country debut since 2011 and featuring Swindell’s latest single, “Ain’t Worth The Whiskey,” along with his first two consecutive No. one singles, the gold certified hit “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight,” and the platinum certified smash “Chillin’ It.”

    Columbia Nashville artist Tyler Farr’s breakthrough debut album REDNECK CRAZY marked the biggest country debut of the year by a new male artist. Hailed as the “song of the summer” by The New York Times, the No. one, platinum-selling title-track “Redneck Crazy” and the Gold-certified hit, “Whiskey in My Water,” earned the Missouri native back-to-back No. ones.

    Swindell burst onto the country music scene with his certified platinum No. 1 smash hit "Chillin' It," and has performed for millions of fans at over 200 shows in 2014 alone. Documenting his explosive year along the way, he has impressively sold over 2.1 million singles and 250,000 albums, having the highest selling country debut upon release since 2011. Also a celebrated songwriter,  Swindell’s credits include “This Is How We Roll,” the smash hit for Florida Georgia Line, “Get Me Some of That,” the No. 1 single for Thomas Rhett, several songs with Luke Bryan, including current single “Roller Coaster,” as well as cuts for Scotty McCreery, Chris Young and Craig Campbell, among others.
     
    Swindell is about to embark on Luke Bryan’s “Farm Tour” before heading out on his own “Down Home Tour” this winter which kicks off November 17th. The two month run of shows will feature vibrant performer, newcomer Kelleigh Bannen, who is currently supporting her new single at country radio, “You Are What You Love.”
