Cole Swindell Traded Sports For Music

Cole Swindell's first love growing up wasn't music, but rather sports. He tells us: [“Well, I really didn’t start singing seriously until I graduated high school. I grew up playing sports and not many people know that about me but that’s something I’ve always loved and in high school I played five sports and you know music was always a big part of my life and always loved it but I didn’t actually start singing and know that I wanted to do this until I was almost out of high school so although sports didn’t really get me anywhere other than writing material but I’ll take that any day. I look back and miss those Friday nights all the time.”] SOUNDCUE (:29 OC: . . . all the time.)

Cole will release his new single, called “Drinkaby,” on Friday (January 27th). The song will be featured on his upcoming project.
