    USA TODAY NAMES COLE SWINDELL’S PERFORMANCE THE ‘BIGGEST MOMENT’ OF SATURDAY NIGHT’S CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (June 15, 2016) – Cole Swindell earned his spot for the second year in a row on the Nissan Stadium lineup at this year’s CMA Music Festival. He performed “You Should Be Here” and thousands of fans, unprompted, lit up the stadium with their cell phones, about which Cole said was the best night of his life. USA TODAY named his performance as the “Biggest Moment” of the night.

    “Wow, wow, wow,” an elated Swindell said at the end of the performance. “I’ll never forget [playing CMA Music Festival] last year. It was my favorite memory until that just happened."

    Cole is currently on tour with Florida Georgia Line’s Dig Your Roots Tour. It was announced LIVE onstage during Wednesday night’s CMT Awards that Cole Swindell’s Down Home Tour Presented by CMT On Tour will kick off late this Fall in tandem with the release of his Down Home Sessions III EP.

    Swindell, who has a record-breaking five consecutive No. 1 singles (first four being off his self-titled debut album) and who Rolling Stone declared is “clearly ready to move on to significance,” is fresh off a coast to coast national launch of his sophomore album "You Should Be Here" with performances on Good Morning America and TODAY, and the history-making first-ever live radio and TV event from the 57th floor terrace of 4 World Trade Center, broadcast on Fox & Friends. The hit singer/songwriter debuted his new single “Middle of a Memory” on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.“Middle of a Memory” was released to country radio and was the No. 1 most added that week. It currently sits in the Top 35 on the country singles chart after five weeks on the chart.
