                                                                Warner Music Nashville





Fresh off the heels of a monumentally successful 2022, multi-Platinum country music star Cole Swindell is off to another great start in 2023.  Amidst award nominations and sold out concerts across the country, the Warner Music Nashville recording artist is releasing a brand new song, “Broken”, available now on all digital platforms.

Having co-written the tune with Chris LaCorte, Cole Taylor, and Hillary Lindsay, Swindell tells the tale of having a conversation with a new love interest.  And while she has had her heart broken in the past, the singer reassures her that he will not do her wrong like others have before, sharing ways he would treat her the way she deserves to be treated.

“Broken” is a classic Cole song, from the production to the modern sounding musical accompaniment splashed with hints of banjo and steel.  Of course, the lyrics are poetic, down-to-earth, and relatable. 

“I ain’t gonna be that guy

That leaves you in the middle of the Broadway lights

Reason why you’re drinking too much wine

While you’re crying to your friends at night

Hope you know you’re one in a million”

His high-energy, upbeat hits like “Chillin’ It”, “Ain’t Worth The Whiskey”, “and “Let Me See Ya Girl” put him on the map as a country music star, but over the years, Cole has proven himself as a prolific songwriter with the uncanny ability to hone in on stories of grief and heartbreak.  After all, he initially introduced himself to the country music world as a songwriter, and years later, songs like “You Should Be Here”, “Middle of a Memory”, and “Break Up In The End” have become some of his biggest hits to date.

Cole has been appearing at some of the biggest music festivals in the country this spring, and will also be a special guest on Thomas Rhett’s Home Team Tour this summer, which will also feature opener Nate Smith.

“Broken” follows “Drinkaby” as two of the three new songs included on his upcoming deluxe album ‘Stereotype Broken’, due April 28th.  His fourth studio album, ‘Stereotype’, spawned the hit singles “Never Say Never” featuring Lainey Wilson, “Single Saturday Night”, and “She Had Me At Heads Carolina”, which remained in the Top 5 for 23 consecutive weeks.
