Venue: Lupos’s Heartbreak Hotel, Providence, Rhode Island–December 9, 2016-Presented by CMT On Tour & Cat Country
On a freezing cold December night, Providence warmed up to Country’s Red Hot Cole Swindell, Cole Taylor, and Travis Denning.
Cole Swindell showed why he is a Platinum selling Artist. His well polished set had the jam packed Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel crowd cheered enthusiastically at such fan favorites as “Chillin’ It, “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight” and “Beer in the Headlights” .
Popular new songs “Wildlife”, “You’ve Got My Number”, and “Chevrolet DJ” from the latest Down Home Sessions 3 release keep the energy going, and the ladies swaying (as expected, the ladies outnumbered the men easily 2 to 1!).
Cole and his band sounded great all night as everyone in the audience raised a glass and sang along to “Brought to You by Beer”
Fans of “She Ain’t Worth the Whiskey” brought the house down to a thundering applause.
As an added bonus, all in attendance received a copy of Cole’s EP “Down Home Sessions III” as part of their ticket purchase.
Openers Cole Taylor and Travis Denning provided a perfect segue and got the crowd into a County Fest mood, with their high energy performances.
Keep an eye on these two as they appear to be on a career path similar to Cole Swindell’s.
Starting with incredible song writing, preforming in Nashville, to honing their performance skills on the road with established Artists,
( Luke Bryan and Cole Swindell) Cole Taylor and Travis Denning could very well headline their own CMT and Cat Country tour!
