Cole Swindell’s Down Home Tour Kicks Off In NYC

Cole Swindell’s second “Down Home” Tour kicked off last night at the Playstation Theater in NYC. Cole’s tour was the second country tour in as many weeks to have the first show in New York, and with good reason. (Thomas Rhett and Brett Eldredge’s “Suits and Boots” Tour hit Terminal 5) The country fans in NYC are crazy, passionate and excited about the music. The whole venue was singing and dancing all night long, even to the house music. Cole is the first country artist to headline the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour (alumni include Macklemore, Iggy Azalea, and Wale)

The crowd’s energy was off the charts for the first night of tour and Cole was just as hype, making sure to give attention to the fans in the balconies, in the pit, and all the way to the fans in the back row of the venue! He encouraged fans to “get up” on each others shoulders, while many in the crowd were busy doing 12-ounce curls. Let’s get weird, y’all!

It was one of those shows where you found yourself going “YES! THIS IS MY JAM!” for pretty much every song in the set. Cole has had 4 #1 hits from his debut album and counting, the latest being his single “Let Me See Ya Girl.” (OUR #1 JAM). Cole got his start working as a songwriter in Nashville and he’s written hits for Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett & more.

The tour was in support of Cole’s “Down Home Sessions II” EP, which was released last week. Cole played every track off the EP, and, judging from the crowd’s reaction, even more jams to add to your playlist. The tour also gave Cole the opportunity to get up close and personal with his fans, after spending most of the year in stadiums opening for Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean. Cole has definitely picked up some on stage pointers from Luke!

Of course, it wouldn’t be a country show without a some “USA! USA!” chants, which were especially fitting for the Veterans Day show. Cole’s hit “Ain’t Worth The Whiskey” was also the perfect song to end the night, as Cole told the audience he’d been “waiting to sing this song all day.” With Cole waving an American flag sourced from the front row, the entire crowd sang the last chorus for the troops. Cheers to a good country song!
