Cole Swindell is heading out on the road this fall/winter on the CMT on Tour Presents the Cole Swindell Down Home Tour and he’s bringing along some good buddies. Depending which show you go to you’ll either get to see Jon Langston or Cole Taylor and Travis Denning get the crowd going for Swindell. This is the third headlining tour for Swindell and it’s hitting the more intimate club scene. To go along with the tour his Down Home Sessions III EP releases October 28th so you can expect to see some new music live. We all know and love Swindell but we want to introduce his tour mates to those who might not be familiar with these up and comers.

Meet Cole Taylor

Cole Taylor has definitely established himself as a songwriter in Nashville. He co-wrote Florida Georgia Line’s “Sippin’ On Fire”, Luke Bryan and Karen Fairchild’s “Home Alone Tonight”, and Cole Swindell’s “Making My Way to You” and “Stay Downtown”. Cole also has released his own music with a self-titled EP, Step 2 EP, and most recently his single “Take a Drink”. Taylor just might be one of the nicest guys in Nashville and puts on a killer show. For more about Cole check out Whiskey Riff exclusive interview with him here.

Meet Travis Denning

Travis Denning is also killing it on the song writing front. He’s recently gotten some awesome cuts including being a co-writer on Chase Rice’s “Everybody We Know Does”, Justin Moore’s “Pick-Up Lines”, and “All Out of Beer” on Jason Aldean’s upcoming album. Hear more here.
