Cole Swindell brought his Down Home Tour to the sold out House of Blues. The night was Country 102.5’s 3rd annual Holiday Jam, and it was one big party all night long. Santa took the Stage to kick off the festivities alongside WKLB’s on air personalities.
Before headliner Cole Swindell hit the stage, the audience was treated to a special performance by Adam Sanders. Sanders lit up the stage with strong soulful vocals and a dose of country boy charm. As a singer /songwriter, Sanders has penned hits for Country artists Luke Bryan, Cole Swindell, Dierks Bently, Dustin Lynch and Scotty McCreery. More recently he has been touring with a host of Country superstars and belting out his songs to enthusiastic crowds. His debut single “Nothin’ To Do But Drink,” and his second single “Somewhere That You Don’t Go” got the party started for the night. Perhaps the highlight of his performance is when he sang his favorite song, one of the newest ones he’s written, called “Real Men Love Jesus”. It was simply a stunning song, packed with emotion and beautiful music and vocals.
Cole Swindell greeted the crowd with a Red Sox shirt and snake skin boots as girls of all ages swooned at his country boy swagger. His first song of the night was “Down Home Boys”. His 20 song set list included all four of his number 1 singles, “Let Me See Ya Girl”, “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight,” “Ain’t Worth The Whiskey” and “Chillin’ It.” Swindell, a singer / songwriter is credited with writing hits for many artists including Luke Bryan, Scotty McCreery, Thomas Rhett and Craig Campbell. But Swindell has definitely found a place of his own in country music. His energy on stage and upbeat party songs kept fans on their feet, dancing and singing along all night. One particularly fun song was when he sang “Let Me See Ya Girl” and he changed the verse “let me see you do it in the Tennessee moonlight” to “let me see you do it in the Boston moonlight.” Another fun song was when Swindell played Luke Bryan’s Roller Coaster, which Swindell actually wrote for him.
One thing’s for sure, there are no shortage of diehard country music fans in Boston. The audience didn’t just show up to watch the show… they came to party. Cowboy boots were stomping, people were singing and dancing, and hands were raised in the air swaying to the music all night long.
Cole Swindell has a full slate of tour dates lined up from now through the summer. Be sure to pull on your cowboy boots and catch his show… you won’t want to miss the party!
