We love reminiscing about all the great country music to hit country radio over the last few years. In our brand new series, we’re looking back on the songs that made it to the top of the country airplay charts. Today, we’re highlighting songs in Cole Swindell’s career that hit the number one spot.
“Chillin’ It”- Cole Swindell
Making his artist debut in 2014, “Chillin’ It” was the first single off of Swindell’s first album. Before the singer-songwriter was even signed to a label, he sold 100,000 copies of this track by word of mouth and social media. It’s not only a special track but also timeless. “Chillin’ It” is perfect song to play during the summer as you’re driving with your windows down.
“Hope You Get Lonely Tonight” – Cole Swindell
The Georgia native certainly started off his singing career strong with another number one off of his debut album. This track is relatable as it tells the story of feeling pain from a breakup but normalizing that it’s ok to miss the other person and wanting to reconcile, even if it’s for one night.
“Ain’t Worth the Whiskey”- Cole Swindell
A true staple in Swindell’s catalog. Written by Swindell, Adam Sanders, and Josh Martin, this shows the talents of the award-winning artist’s storytelling. It’s not only a song about getting over a breakup but also a song to honor the men and women serving our country. Every time Swindell plays this song live, he takes a moment to thank not only the service men and women in our military but also first responders. It’s a special moment that you should experience if you haven’t already!
“Let Me See Ya Girl”– Cole Swindell
With his fourth consecutive number one from his debut album, Swindell was the first and only solo male artist in the history of the Mediabase chart to have his first four singles hit number one. Staying with his chill vibe, this is another song that always has the crowd up on their feet with their arms swinging.
“You Should Be Here” – You Should Be Here
“You Should Be Here” was the first single off of Swindell’s sophomore album. It’s one of the first times we got a look into the artist’s personal life. An emotional song about losing his father, this song is relatable for anyone who has ever lost a loved one.
“Middle of a Memory” – You Should Be Here
The great storytelling continued with Swindell’s sixth number one. Written by Swindell, Zach Crowell, and Ashley Gorley, it’s a track that tells a relatable story of meeting someone on the dance floor but then being interrupted and never being reunited. It questions the love that could have been.
“Flatliner” (Featuring Dierks Bentley) – You Should Be Here
Swindell wrote this song with Dierks Bentley in mind. Bentley is a mentor of Swindell’s, and it was a dream come true when the superstar agreed to collaborate! The hit song led to the 2015 ACM New Artist of the year breaking his own record of being the only solo artist in the history of Country Aircheck\Mediabase to top the chart with their first seven singles.
“Love You Too Late”- All of It
A song that shares the message of don’t wait to say I love you or it might be too late was the second single off of Swindell’s third studio album. This wasn’t the first time that Swindell, Brandon Kinney, and Michael Carter wrote a song together but it was their first number one.
“Single Saturday Night” – Stereotype
“Single Saturday Night” was lucky number ten. Written for his new album Stereotype, this track is a fun twist on finding your person. With a shoutout to the popular hard seltzer, White Claw, it makes you think when will your last single Saturday night be?
“Never Say Never” (with Lainey Wilson) – Stereotype
Swindell’s latest number one song doubles as his first-ever duet, “Never Say Never” with Lainey Wilson. The love song lands Swindell his 11th number one hit.
“She Had Me At Heads Carolina” – Stereotype
Swindell’s twelfth number one single, “She Had Me At Heads Carolina” was a standout from his latest record. After just one listen, “She Had Me At Heads Carolina,” will get stuck in your head. The song is a fun riff on the classic country song, “Heads Carolina, Tails California.” Swindell shines on this song, as he shares the fun meet-cute story through the verses.
We’re certain Swindell will add to this list for a long time coming as he continues to put out hit after hit. Nonetheless, this impressive list is just the artist’s number ones as a singer. He also has quite a few as a songwriter. So it’s no secret that he’s quite talented and we can’t wait to watch his career continue to thrive!
