Cole Swindell Garners Seventh Consecutive No. 1 With ‘Flatliner’
Life is very good for Cole Swindell right now. The singer is at the top of the country charts for the seventh time in a row with his latest single, "Flatliner."
Swindell has also broken his own record of being the only solo artist in the history of Country Aircheck/Mediabase to top the chart with his first seven singles. "Every No. 1 is special for so many reasons," he insists. "This one is really special because it's a song I wrote with my mentor in mind. Never dreaming it would turn out like this for me!"
"Dierks [Bentley] is not only my mentor but my friend and now I have a No. 1 song I was blessed to get to record with him," Swindell continues in a press release. "He has been so gracious and supportive of me from the beginning. This feels amazing."
Behind Cole Swindell's "You Should Be Here" Lyrics
Swindell previously told Country Countdown USA that he wrote “Flatliner” four years ago specifically for Dierks Bentley.
“I wrote it for him, sent it to him and never heard from him,” Swindell explains. “I don’t know if he heard it or didn’t like it, but a year or so ago, I was texting with him and sent it to him, and he loved it. We talked about it for a while, and sure enough, we got to do it. I’m just very excited to be singing with Dierks.”
Swindell co-wrote "Flatliner" with Matt Brownleewe and Jaron Boyer. It is the third single off his sophomore album You Should Be Here, which includes previous hits "You Should Be Here" and "Middle of a Memory." These three No. 1s follow previous chart toppers “Let Me See Ya Girl,” “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight,” “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey,” and “Chillin’ It.”
In addition to a No. 1 hit with Bentley, Swindell is on the road with his mentor as part of Bentley's 2017 What the Hell World Tour.
