Cole Swindell Raises a Glass to Troops Overseas at Delaware Junction Festival
Swindell took the stage after Tyler Farr at the Delaware Junction Festival in Harrington, Del., before Jason Aldean wrapped up Day 1.
This country music songwriter and recording artist expressed his gratitude on stage for other big names like Luke Bryan and Thomas Rhett, which is where he says it all began. Swindell moved to Nashville and started his country music career selling merchandise for country singer Luke Bryan. He was given the opportunity to write while in Nashville where he wrote Luke Bryan’s hit “Rollercoaster,” which was performed at Delaware Junction.
Swindell also performed the hit he wrote for Thomas Rhett, “Get Me Some of That,” as well as the song he co-wrote with Florida Georgia Line and Luke Bryan, “This Is How We Roll.”
Swindell engaged the crowd, got them singing, drinking, and dancing to set the tone for Aldean’s performance. He referred to everyone in the crowd as his ‘buddies’ and acknowledged that he wouldn’t be where he is today with out the help of big country artists who have mentored him along the way. He also says he wouldn’t be where he is today without all the support and love from his fans.
He ended his set with “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey,” and had the crowd singing along, thanking those fighting overseas.
