Cole Swindell is a well known name in country now, but it took him a long time to get there. He spent years sending song lyrics to artists, just to be ignored.
“Hey guys, I wrote this today, and it’d be fun to play live.”
The email was ignored, but the song-writer didn’t give up. When the two got to know each other a little better, Swindell sent the email again. This time, Bentley read it and decided it would be a hit.
“That’s a hit song, it’s awesome. I wish you’d sing it with me,” he said.
The two singers are now on tour together.
“Here I am on tour with him, and my seventh single on country radio has Dierks Bentley on it. That’s a dream come true,” Swindell said.
