GRAMMY-nominated, multi-Platinum superstar Cole Swindell will celebrate the Friday (April 8) release of his upcoming fourth album, Stereotype, with a duet performance with Billboard’s “Top New Country Artist of 2021” and iHeartRadio Music Awards Best New Country Artist Lainey Wilson of his current Top 5 and rising single “Never Say Never” on ABC’s Good Morning America on Monday, April 11. Later that night the two will perform “Never Say Never” live on the CMT Music Awards (8:00-11:00 PM LIVE ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network; the show will also be available to stream live and on-demand on Paramount+.
“It’s been a while since I released my last album, so it’s hard to put into words how much it means to me to get this album Stereotype out there,” said Swindell. “So much has changed in the world and even in my own life the past few years. I think all that has given me a chance to evaluate what’s really important in life and made me stronger. I believe this album reflects that in the most positive ways. I feel through all of the highs and lows and feeling every emotion in the last three years I think the fans are going to find there is a song on here for everyone, at least I hope so. I always want my songs to make a difference like they did for me in writing some of them.”
Swindell and Wilson are nominated for the night’s most-coveted “Video of Year” award at the 2022 CMT Music Awards with “Never Say Never.”
“Never Say Never,” already sitting in the Top 5 on the country singles chart and rising, was the most added song at country radio the week of release, giving both Swindell and Wilson their biggest radio add day of their careers. The single, written by Swindell, Jessi Alexander and Chase McGill, immediately received rave media reviews including E! Online exclaiming, “If there's one duet country music fans should listen to this weekend, we found it.” Country Now boasts, “The temperature may be dropping, but Cole Swindell and Lainey Wilson are certainly heating things up with their brand-new duet, ‘Never Say Never.’” Billboard called the duet a “power ballad,” Taste of Country says the song is “smoldering,” Music Mayhem Magazine calls it a “fiery new duet” and an “arena-ready anthem.”
Stereotype includes Swindell’s milestone, 10th career, multi-week No. 1 “Single Saturday Night,” the namesake to his current headlining tour “Down To The Bar” and his current fast-rising single, “Never Say Never,” with Lainey Wilson.
In addition to the album’s No. 1 debut single, “Single Saturday Night,” over the past several weeks Swindell has answered the call from fans eager for new music by releasing a few songs from the upcoming new album including “Some Habits,” “I’m Gonna Let Her,” and most recently the namesake of his current headlining tour “Down To The Bar” (featuring HARDY).
