Cole Swindell Launches Funny Campaign to Get New Artist of the Year Votes
Cole Swindell is one of the ACM nominees for New Artist of the Year in 2015, and the singer-songwriter is getting into the spirit of the competition with a humorous campaign.
The singer mimics a Presidential campaign video. The video fades in on an overlay of an American flag, and patriotic music swells as Swindell enters the screen dressed in an aviator jumpsuit and sunglasses.
"My name is Cole Swindell, and I stand here today in front of you with great honor and pride. I am humbled to be an ACM New Artist of the Year nominee. And I, Cole Swindell, need your help," he announces.
The next clips in the short film show Swindell talking with a Rosie the Riveter look alike who is busy calculating his current votes and a soldier who is producing posters. An Uncle Sam stand-in encourages viewers to vote for Swindell. The quirky video displays Swindell's goofy side and reminds fans that they can vote for him once a day each day at VoteACM.com.
Swindell is up against Thomas Rhett and Sam Hunt for the coveted ACM New Artist of the New award. The winner will be announced during the 2015 ACM Awards, which air live on Sunday, April 19 at 8PM ET on CBS.
