A native of Georgia, Swindell met fellow country artist Luke Bryan while Swindell was enrolled at Georgia Southern University before moving to Nashville to be Bryan’s “merch guy” for three years while beginning to write his own songs.

After landing a publishing deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing in 2010, Swindell wrote songs for Bryan, Thomas Rhett and Florida Georgia Line.

Swindell has since released the albums “You Should Be Here” in 2016 and “All of It” in 2018, with the latter’s single “Break Up in the End” being nominated for “Best Country Song” at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards in 2019. .

His fourth studio album, “Stereotype”, was released in April, with songs “Single Saturday Night” and “Never Say Never” reaching the top 30 on the US Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and No. 1 on the US Country Airplay chart.
