About Cole Swindell
Country music superstar Cole Swindell released his fifth studio album, Stereotype, to massive success. The project charted three back-to-back, Platinum-certified, multi-week No. 1 hits: “Single Saturday Night,” “Never Say Never” (with Lainey Wilson) and, most recently, his five-week chart-topper “She Had Me At Heads Carolina” which has garnered five ACM Award nominations. In 2022 Swindell spent a total of 27 weeks in the Top 5 of the country singles chart with “Never Say Never” (8 weeks) and “She Had Me At Heads Carolina” (21 weeks). He released a special duet remix of his smash “She Had Me At Heads Carolina” featuring Jo Dee Messina. In the seven years since his debut on Warner Music Nashville, Swindell has racked up an impressive 12 No. 1 singles as an artist – 13 as a songwriter – as well as 12 certified Platinum singles (one single at 3x Platinum and four at 2x Platinum), a Platinum-certified debut album (Cole Swindell), a Platinum-certified sophomore effort (You Should Be Here) and a Gold-certified third entry (All Of It). The Georgia hitmaker has over 5.2 BILLION global career streams. His massive, GRAMMY-nominated hit “Break Up In The End” was named the 2019 NSAI Song of the Year. Swindell earned two nominations (Musical Event of the Year and Music Video of the Year) for “Never Say Never” at the 56th CMA Awards. Swindell officially became a headliner on his own in 2018 with his Reason To Drink Tours, and his 2022 Back Down To The Bar Tour. He will join Thomas Rhett on the Home Team Tour in 2023.
About Nate Smith
Featuring a mix of gritty backwoods soul, rock ‘n’ roll swagger and velvet-thunder vocals, Nate Smith is a Nashville artist with a unique connection to life’s inner tug of war. And with his first batch of major-label music, he’s aiming to tip the scales once and for all.
“I just feel lucky that I get to be the messenger for these songs,” says the rising singer-songwriter. “I’m not here to be cool or anything like that. It’s literally just to hit people in the heart.”
About Greylan James
The Knoxville, Tennessee native moved to Nashville in pursuit of his dreams. Shortly after, Universal Music Publishing Group (UMPG) signed Greylan to a global publishing deal. While writing he was also featured on NBC’s The Voice and ranked one of the best guitarists in the world under 21 by Guitar Center Magazine’s Brotherhood of the Guitar Top 100. His songwriting is proven to be relatable, often ending up in the hands of notable names such as Chris Young, Blake Shelton and Chris Janson. In 2020, Kenny Chesney personally called Greylan to inform him he was recording his song “Happy Does,” which peaked at number 2 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. Now, one of his latest cuts, “Next Thing You Know,” recorded and co-written by Jordan Davis is aiming to do the same as it rapidly climbs the charts.
Since the release of his debut EP, I Hope She Hears These, in 2022, Greylan has since signed a record deal with Big Machine Label Group fulfilling a childhood dream and joining the likes of Lady A, Brett Young, Florida Georgia Line and many more. His latest release “Undermine” accompanies a slew of previously released singles including “Old Truck, Young Love,” co-written with NBA superstar Jimmy Butler, “My Future,” and “2 Years Back,” that will be featured on Greylan’s forthcoming full-length album due out later this year.
