Cole Swindell Knows His No. 1 Streak Won’t Last Forever, But …
Cole Swindell recently earned his seventh consecutive No. 1 hit with “Flatliner,” his duet with Dierks Bentley. The song, from Swindell’s sophomore album, You Should Be Here, was written by Swindell, along with Matt Bronleewe and Jaron Boyer. For a singer who has seen all (yes, all) of his singles land at the top of the charts, there must be some secret to his success, right? If there is one, Swindell admits he doesn’t know what it is.
“I would think at some point, that streak has to end,” Swindell shared with The Boot and other reporters at a recent media event. “It’s a pressure, but it’s a good pressure. That’s something me and my team take pride in: trying to get my songs to the top of the chart. You’ve got to give a lot of credit to them.”
Swindell has every reason to take pride in his hard work and dream of bigger and better accomplishments, but the humble singer remains grateful for all he has achieved so far. He also doesn’t feel the need to plan too far ahead.
“In this business, we all [say], ‘What’s next? What’s next? Keep the grind going.’ But if it all ended tomorrow, look at what’s happened,” Swindell shares. “Now, here we are, several No. 1s later, in front of thousands of people who are die-hard country music fans. That’s the country music dream; that’s what you dream of happening. It just doesn’t always work that way. I know that from just being around town. I’m always going to be that wide-eyed guy.”
