Single Review: Cole Swindell - "She Had Me At Heads Carolina"



                                                                      COLE SWINDELL

                                                                "She Had Me At Heads Carolina'" 

                                                                Warner Music Nashville





Country music star Cole Swindell is back with a brand-new song that will surely be at or near the top of the chart in no time.  “She Had Me At Heads Carolina” is available now on all streaming platforms, as the award-winning singer-songwriter released the track via Warner Music Nashville this month.

We all know and love “Heads Carolina, Tails California,” the 1996 hit performed and released by Jo Dee Messina. Swindell, along with songwriters that includes Thomas Rhett, has intuitively reimagined the classic tune to give new life to a song that has been beloved by so many for decades.

Tim Nichols and Mark Sanders were co-writers of “Heads Carolina, Tails California,” and they contributed to Cole’s new song as well, along with Ashley Gorley and Jesse Frasure.  And while it’s often difficult to “pull off” a tribute song, Swindell & Co. have succeeded here, offering a fun-loving, laid-back party tune perfect for summer.

Hey I got a Chevy, she can flip a quarter

I’d drive her anywhere from here to California

When this song is over, I gotta find her

‘Cause she had me at “Heads Carolina””

This is a track that will appeal to just about every fan of country music.  It has the nostalgic feel of classic 90’s country when the original tune was created, while also adding a modern twist that will offer something for younger, new fans of the genre.

Cole is on fire with his fourth album, Stereotype, released in April.  The Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter tallied his 11th career No. 1 single, “Never Say Never”, a duet with the ACM Top New Female Artist of the Year Lainey Wilson.  That followed the chart-topping “Single Saturday Night”, which was fans’ first introduction to his latest project.  “She Had Me At Heads Carolina” promises to be another hit for Swindell, who can seemingly do no wrong as a singer, songwriter, or performer.
