NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (October 11, 2017) – No. 1 hit songwriters Cole Swindell, Jaron Boyer and Matt Bronleewe gathered with fans, friends and industry notables last night before Swindell headlined the Stay Downtown at Tootsie’s 57th Birthday Bash to celebrate the No. 1 hit “Flatliner,” from Swindell’s certified RIAA Gold album You Should Be Here. “Flatliner,” which features his friend/mentor Dierks Bentley, became Swindell’s record-breaking seventh consecutive No. 1 single (breaking his own record, again) and his tenth overall as a songwriter.
Swindell, the seven-time Platinum-selling No. 1 hit songwriter is the only solo artist in the history of Country Aircheck/Mediabase to top the chart with his first SEVEN singles.
During the No. 1 celebration for “Flatliner,” the Georgia native was surprised onstage with the plaque for the Platinum-certification for “Middle of a Memory,” which was certified this summer. “Middle of a Memory” was the follow-up to the Platinum-certified, 1+ Billion-reaching smash single “You Should Be Here.”
Each of the six previous singles and two albums Swindell has released since he signed with Warner Bros. Records three years ago have not only all gone to No. 1 on the country charts but have been certified by the RIAA for reaching Gold (500,000+) and/or Platinum (1,000,000) status.
In just over three years since he made his debut on Warner Bros. Records, Swindell has racked up an impressive and incomparable record-breaking SEVEN No. 1 singles (the only solo artist in the history of the Country Aircheck/Mediabase to top the charts with first seven singles); 10 No. 1 singles as a songwriter; one 1 billion audience reaching single (“You Should Be Here”), five Platinum singles; one Gold single; a Platinum-certified debut album; a Gold-certified sophomore album (You Should Be Here) as well as numerous SONGWRITING honors and awards including being the reigning NSAI Songwriter/Artist of the Year (2016), winning back-to-back CMA Triple Play Awards in both 2015 and 2016 (for penning three No. 1 songs in a 12 month span) and Music Row’s Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year during his debut (2015). This year, Swindell has performed his 7th career No. 1 single “Flatliner,” which features his mentor/friend and 2017 WHAT THE HELL WORLD TOUR mate Dierks Bentley, on the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards telecast live on CBS and again this summer for the “CMA Fest” special that aired this summer on ABC Television.
