Cole Swindell has joined celebrities like Jennifer Aniston and Renee Zellweger in partnering with Huffington Post to write an open letter. Cole’s “Dear Nashville” details his journey in music and the support he received from the community after the death of his father.
I’ll never forget the day I moved to town. Aug 23rd 2007. It was my dad’s birthday and I was breaking my mama’s heart leaving Georgia. That day was the first year Capitol Records put on the Pub Crawl on Demonbreun Street and some of my biggest artist/songwriter influences were all playing… Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley, & Eric Church,” Cole writes.
Fans can read Cole’s letter to Nashville in its entirety here…
To Nashville, the Industry, the fans…thank you for letting me live this dream. Thank you for giving me a place to write a song like YSBH. I will always be here for you like you’ve been there for me.” CS
Swindell is currently on tour with Florida Georgia Line’s “Dig Your Roots Tour”. He will continue his year-long schedule on the road starting October 26th for his own headlining “CMT Presents the Cole Swindell Down Home Tour” in tandem with the October 28th release of his “Down Home Sessions III“ EP.
