Cole Swindell is one hard working dude. When he brings his fun, high energy show to this year’s Spiediefest and Balloon Rally, along with Kristen Bush of Sugarland, you will be treated to a bunch of songs that Cole has written for other artists like Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Scotty McCreery, including some familiar songs he calls his own, like his new smash, “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight.”

I think everyone assumes Cole had it easy, working with Luke Bryan, selling T-shirts and then landing the opening gig on his tour.  The truth is, Cole Swindell struggled for a long time in Nashville, trying to get his songs out there for more than 6 years.

He owes Luke a lot saying, “Luke taught me to be upbeat, to have fun and not to be afraid to be goofy on stage.”  With Luke and now Cole, that translates to the audience and they walk away from his concerts having fun too.

Cole’s first hit “Chillin’ It,” sold more than 100,000 on iTunes, even before he had a major record deal.  When he did sign to Warner Brothers, his self-titled album debuted on the top 200 chart at number 3, behind the “Frozen” soundtrack.  Pretty amazing stuff for a guy from Bronwood, GA, a small town with a population of 600.

August 3rd, Cole Swindell brings his high energy show as a co-headliner for the Spiediefest and Balloon Rally.  Kristen Bush of Sugarland fame is also headlining, with Norwich New York favorites, Kaitlyn Jackson and Cassidy Lynn.  Talk about your hot new country!  Tickets are on sale now at MaineSource Food and Party Warehouse, Upper Front Street, Binghamton, all area Weis Markets and Spiediefest.com.

Take a look at Cole’s video from his #1 song “Chillin’ It.
