Multi-Platinum superstar Cole Swindell is bringing his brand of down-home, young country sound to Yakima.  You may have seen Cole's recently released smash single “Never Say Never,” a duet with his friend and BBR Music Group’s rising star Lainey Wilson from his new album Stereotype. If not...check out his hit with the "wrong side of the law - break for freedom" video!

Super Successful So Far

Let's backfill a few of the highlights from his short but rocket-fueled amazing career.

The multi-week No. 1 hit “Never Say Never” is his 11th career No. 1 following on the heels of the album’s debut multi-week No. 1 “Single Saturday Night,” which has logged over 245 million streams globally.

In the seven years since his debut on Warner Music Nashville, Swindell has racked up an impressive 11 No. 1 singles as an artist – 12 No. 1 as a songwriter.  Make room on the shelf for  – nine certified Platinum singles (four singles at 2x Platinum), a Platinum-certified debut album (Cole Swindell), and a Gold-certified sophomore album (You Should Be Here).

The Georgia hitmaker has almost 5 BILLION global career streams. His massive, GRAMMY-nominated hit “Break Up In The End” was named the NSAI Song of the Year (2019)

Chinook Fest Paves The Way

Music lovers should know that the annual Chinook Fest Cascades camp out Music Extravaganza, normally held in September, is moving to June 10th through 12th.
