After releasing his third studio album, All of It, on Aug. 17, Cole Swindell is getting personal about the track, “The Ones Who Got Mere Here.”
In a track by track video, Cole digs deep into the standout track exclusively for One Country readers, where he dedicates the tune to his country music family and everyone in between that helped him get to where he is today.
“There’s so many people I can thank for getting me to where I am today,” Cole says in the video. “The song, ‘The Ones Who Got Me Here,’ that song is for all those people. It’s personal to me, but I think everybody can relate to it. No matter what you do, what profession you’re in, somebody out there believed in you and helped you get where you are.”
Cole has written 10 No. 1 singles in his career, including Luke Bryan’s “Rollercoaster,” Thomas Rhett’s “Get Me Some of That” and seven of his own. Co-written alongside Ashley Gorley and Jesse Frasure, “The Ones Who Got Me Here,” is Cole’s favorite song he’s written since writing “You Should Be Here.”
“This is the song I’ve always wanted to write,” Cole said. “It mentions everybody that’s ever helped me, doubted me, all of it. The ones who got me here, that’s you.”
