WATCH: Cole Swindell Has Bucket List Moment With Icon Tim McGraw
Country music star Cole Swindell has earned himself a handful of prestigious accolades throughout the years, but he considers singing with Tim McGraw the “coolest” moment of his career thus far.
The “Never Say Never” artist took to social media late Tuesday (Aug. 2) night to reveal footage from his recent performance with the icon at Faster Horses Festival in Michigan. McGraw served as the headliner at the Midwest concert and surprised his lively crowd with Swindell during his smash hit, “I Like It, I Love It.”
Swindell documented the entire experience and had a videographer capture the bucket list moment from start to finish. Before hitting the stage with the Louisiana native, Swindell displayed a vintage McGraw t-shirt under his denim button-up.
“One of the coolest moments of my career is about to happen…” the hitmaker wrote in the subtitles. “Singing ’I Like It, I Love It’ w/the man himself,” he added.
Swindell tackled the classic with confidence, as the duet triggered a roaring sing-along. The thunderous response took the 39-year-old back.
“They never sang it back this loud when I covered it in college,” he recalled. “Glad someone captured this because I mayyyy have blacked out up there!!!”
The musician continued to thank McGraw for his contributions to the country music genre and for playing a vital role in his artistry.
“Thank you Tim for everything you’ve done for country music,” he expressed with gratitude. “And inspiring me to do what I love,” he concluded the video.
Swindell is currently gearing up for his nationwide Down To The Bar Tour. The powerhouse vocalist is slated to embark on his run on Sept. 23 with direct support from breakout stars Ashley Cooke and Dylan Marlowe.
