Cole Swindell Might End His ‘Down Home Sessions’ Series
Cole Swindell has released a Down Home Sessions project each year for the last three years; the compilations feature songs that Swindell loves that haven't made it onto his albums. However, as Swindell works on his third studio album while serving as an opening act on Dierks Bentley's What the Hell World Tour, the singer-songwriter is considering taking a break from the series.
"I wish I didn’t have to think about that, because that’s the topic right now. We’re kind of right in the middle of deciding," Swindell shared with The Boot and other reporters at a recent media event. "For me, that’s something I do want to continue to do for my fans. If we do it, it may be a different version -- maybe stripped down, maybe acoustic -- just something different than just putting the best songs I have that didn’t fit on the album.
"I think I’ve got to start saving some of those," he adds. "I think we put some great songs out on those Down Home Sessions that got me to this point. But this year, it’s going to be a close call. I don’t know yet."
Swindell hints that his fans might have a say in whether there is a fourth Down Home Sessions compilation or not.
"Maybe the fans will speak up, and we’ll end up doing one," the "Flatliner" singer says. "But, right now, I’m focused on finishing up [promoting] this You Should Be Here album, and then what’s next. I always hear your third album’s -- all albums are a big deal, but I think this next one is going to be a big opportunity, but I want to be sure I’m focused 100 percent."
