Cole Swindell gathered family, fans and friends in downtown Nashville when he celebrated his No. 1 single, “Flatliner,” from his studio album You Should Be Here.
“Flatliner,” which features Dierks Bentley, became Swindell’s seventh consecutive No. 1 hit. His latest hit puts the “You Should Be Here” singer on the road to besting the record of 21 consecutive No. 1 hits held by Alabama—a streak lasting from 1980-1987.
“Seven in a row. That’s a lot of teamwork and a lot of people on our side and having great co-writers. That’s what these number one parties are about. They’re about the people who wrote the song, and I’ve got two great ones right here,” Swindell said about co-writers Jaron Boyer and Matt Bronleewe.
While the 34-year-old was basking in his “Flatliner” success, he was surprised on stage when he was awarded with a plaque for the Platinum-certification for “Middle of a Memory,” the follow up single to his signature hit “You Should Be Here.”
After celebrating, Swindell went back to work headlining Tootsie’s 57th Birthday Bash on the streets of downtown Nashville. Doing exactly what he loves. The appropriately titled “Stay Downtown,” is Swindell’s next single release.
