Cole Swindell & Jo Dee Messina Team Up For "Heads Carolina" Remix

If you've turned on country radio even once in the last few months, chances are you've heard Cole Swindell's most recent #1, "She Had Me At Heads Carolina." Paying tribute to Jo Dee Messina's timeless "Heads Carolina, Tails California," Swindell's song is set in a karaoke bar where the 1996 country hit plays. Swindell has enjoyed huge success from "She Had Me At Heads Carolina," while introducing newer generations of country fans to Jo Dee Messina and her influence on country music. In an iconic move, Swindell and Messina now team up for a remix of the former's hit!

Of course, Swindell needed approval from Messina and her co-writers before releasing "She Had Me At Heads Carolina." But Messina's enthusiastic support of the track - and the unique connection it has with fans - allowed it to take off. A standout on Swindell's newest album, Stereotype, it never fails to get crowds on their feet during live performances. It's a fun and satisfying one to scream along to, for millennial and Gen Z country fans alike.

Messina poignantly begins the song, and shines even more on the bridge. Incorporating beloved lyrics from Swindell's "She Had Me At Heads Carolina," as well as original lyrics from Messina's "Heads Carolina, Tails California," the energetic remix is impossible to take off repeat. Between Messina's captivating belt and Swindell's expertly crafted homage to 90s country, there's nothing not to love.
