Perhaps nobody understands Cole Swindell’s “You Should Be Here” more than those you who lost their loved ones on September 11th, 2001.

In the shadow of the Freedom Tower of One Word Trade Center, Cole stood atop World Trade Center 4 back in 2016 to deliver an immensely emotional performance of “You Should Be Here” in honor of all of those that lost their lives on that fateful day.

Performing for the families of 9/11 victims, first responders and members of the military, Cole called the experience “the most special thing I’ve ever had the chance to do.”

“I’m not sure I deserve to be the one doing this, but it’s such an amazing feeling that I have a song that I wrote about personal experience… to see this country and the fans relate to it the way that they do. I think we’ve all got somebody we’re missing or that we’ve lost that could be making every moment we get to spend a little bit better. You know, I’m excited to meet some folks and just be in such a special place singing my favorite song I’ve ever written.”

Never forget.
