For many people, August 23 might seem like any other hot summer day, but for Cole Swindell, there is a lot of meaning behind the day.

In a post on his Instagram page, Cole tells the story of his arrival in Nashville and his subsequent journey to becoming a successful singer and songwriter.

“On this day, 12 years ago, I moved to Nashville. It was my Dad’s birthday, record-breaking heat wave, and my 3 favorite artists ( @dierksbentley , @lukebryan , & @ericchurch ) were all playing a pub crawl on Demonbreun St. I was so nervous because I had NO clue if I’d ever be good enough at writing songs or singing them to make a living. I was also excited because I knew no matter what happened I absolutely HAD to be AROUND the music business…around the songs.  I just wanted a shot to make other people feel the way I did when I heard music that I loved,” he writes.

Cole goes on to say, “Everyone has their own path and ALL of you have certainly made a huge impact on mine. 3 albums & (in the middle of) 5 EPs later… here we are. August 23rd. I’d say it’s a pretty special day to put out a new song.. it was honestly supposed to be out last Friday but I was told that plans had changed and when I heard the new release date…I just smiled. Things like that don’t just happen. Happy Birthday, Pops! Gonna be a good night here in California. Love y’all! #12 #Aug23.”

It appears that fate, kismet or divine intervention had something to do with the release of Cole’s newest tune, However, if history repeats itself, the Georgia boy could be looking at another hit.
