Cole Swindell’s Freshman Album Earns Platinum Certification
Cole Swindell recently revealed plans for his sophomore album, but his self-titled debut is still earning accolades. The project, released in February of 2014, has been certified platinum.
Cole Swindell features 12 tracks, including the No. 1 and platinum-certified singles "Chillin' It," "Hope You Get Lonely Tonight" and "Ain't Worth the Whiskey," as well as the Top 10 and gold-certified song "Let Me See Ya Girl."
"That is one of those things you hope you can achieve but can never really prepare yourself for it actually happening," Swindell says in a press release. "Being a part of the country music family is something I take seriously, and I am truly honored.”
Swindell’s new disc will have a lot to live up to, following the success of his debut project. Fortunately, he has someone to keep him level-headed: his mother.
“If I start putting too much pressure on myself, that’s something my mama is there to help with,” Swindell explains. “She’s like, ‘Cole, it’s been so good. You know it’s not always going to be like that!’ And I’m like, ‘I know, mama, that’s why I’m trying to enjoy it!’”
