Cole Swindell and Peyton Manning Duet on ‘You Never Even Called Me by My Name’
Cole Swindell has enlisted Peyton Manning to help with his latest video series, Swindell Vision. Each Wednesday, a new episode is released and gives fans a glimpse into the "You Should Be Here" singer's life behind the scenes and on the road.
Manning introduces this week's four-minute video segment with Swindell. Understandably starstruck, seconds later Swindell is seen watching Manning walk down the hallway as he looks at his autographed football in admiration.
"That's Peyton Manning," he whispers.
"I had a chance to meet him earlier this year. You can't really explain to somebody how if somebody's genuine or real," he gushes. "It's crazy. When you're in the spotlight and you're a super star like him and you're kind to everybody and a good person it's funny how much more impactful that is than not. Peyton Manning is not only a great athlete, he's a great person."
Midway through the clip, the two perform at a benefit concert at the Peyton Manning Children's Hospital at St. Vincent. Dressed in a suit, Manning joins Swindell onstage and assists on the last verse of David Allan Coe's "You Never Even Called Me by My Name" as he and Swindell share a microphone. Meanwhile, fans in the audience can be seen singing and dancing along to the song selection.
Swindell is set to release his sophomore album You Should Be Here on May 6. The album is titled You Should Be Here after the name of his current single, which Swindell co-wrote with Ashley Gorley, and was inspired in part by the death of the star’s father and how the singer wishes he could be with him to share all his triumphs.
