Cole Swindell released his self-titled debut album last week and it debuted at No. 1 on Soundscan’s Overall Digital Album Chart and at No. 3 on SoundScan’s All Genre chart with over 63,000 albums sold, marking it the highest-selling debut album from a country artist since October 2011. Cole’s debut single, “Chillin’ It,” is at No. 1 this week and has sold nearly 900,000 copies to date, making it the highest-selling debut single released in 2013 from a solo country male.
“Chillin’ It” was the first 2014 single in all genres to receive Gold certification from the RIAA. Cole will perform on Good Morning America on March 18 and recently made his national TV debut with a performance of “Chillin’ It” on Late Night With David Letterman.
Cole is currently on tour with Luke Bryan’s That’s My Kind of Night Tour. His spot on the tour brings him full circle – he previously toured with Luke as his merchandise guy, selling t-shirts during the show.
