GRAND ISLAND, Neb. – Platinum-selling and six-time No. 1 hit singer/songwriter Cole Swindell will perform in the Heartland Events Center at the Nebraska State Fair on Sunday, Sept. 3, starting at 7:30pm.

Chelsey Jungck, the fair’s events and entertainment director said, “With a string of hits since 2013, Cole Swindell is leaving his mark on the country music landscape. He’s also written a number of well-known songs for other artists, including, Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett, and co-written for Florida Georgia Line. We’re really excited to have him at the fair.”
Cole Swindell released his second album, You Should Be Here, and it shot to No. 1 on the iTunes Top Country Albums Chart and No. 3 All Genre within hours of its release. The album is now certified Platinum by the RIAA. Its lead single and title track held a four week run on top of Billboard’s Hot Country songs chart in addition to multiple weeks sitting at No. 1 on country airplay.
His Platinum-certified and career defining hit You Should Be Here surpassed one billion audience impressions. The song joins Swindell’s six other No. 1 consecutive singles as a solo artist, including Gold-certified hits Let Me See Ya Girl, and most recent No. 1 and Gold-certified, Middle of a Memory.
This tops his own record of being the only solo artist in the history of Country Aircheck/Mediabase to top the chart with his first six singles. His seventh career single, “Flatliner,” features his mentor/friend and 2017 tour mate Dierks Bentley.
“Cole Swindell has sold well over five million tracks and has been been streamed over 520 million times,” Jungck said. “He has won numerous awards including the 2016 NSAI Songwriter/Artist of the Year and was awarded his second CMA “Triple Play Award” in 2016 having written at least three No. 1 songs in twelve months. It’s going to be a night full of hits people love to listen to.”
