When Cole Swindell launched his Down Home Sessions EP in 2014, there was no hint that 3 years later he’d be releasing Down Home Sessions IV.
The four EP’s consist of 5 songs each, all written or co-written by Cole, that other artists recorded. The latest EP, Down Home Sessions IV, contains the song “Beer in the Headlights, which was recorded by Luke Bryan for his 2013 Crash My Party album. Not to be confused with his latest single, “Stay Downtown,” from the full-length album, You Should Be Here, he released in 2016.
Cole recently filmed a video for the song, which shows him inside the studio wearing his signature Georgia Southern baseball hat, as part of the ” Down Home Acoustic Sessions.”
“‘Beer in the Headlights’ was the song that—when Luke recorded it, it was right before I got my record deal—I said, ‘Man, if I ever write another song I love this much, I’ve got to keep it,'” Cole told Nash Country Daily. “Two months later, I wrote ‘Chillin’ It’ and here we are.”
“Sittin’ right here, out here in the middle of nowhere / I swear I’ve never seen, ever seen nothing like you anywhere / I got the key turned back, windows down, I’m turning it up and you’re / Spinnin’ around, takin’ a sip, swingin’ your hips, girl you’re looking so fine with your beer in the headlights,” Cole sings in the chorus.
You can catch Cole in 2018 as he hits the road for his first-ever major headlining Reason to Drink Tour for 2018, with Lauren Alaina and Chris Janson.
