It’s hard to believe, but Cole Swindell has not yet headlined his own tour. That will change in 2018, however, when the Georgia native launches of his Reason To Drink Tour.

What took so long? Cole’s been doing a lot of studying, apparently. “I am excited to be able to take everything I have learned while on the road the last four years watching all that Luke, Jason, Kenny, Dierks, Tyler and Brian did as headliners.,” Cole says through is publicist. “Everything from how they treat their fans, their high-energy performances, to how they treated everyone on the tour. They were great examples of how much work it takes for a successful tour. I can honestly say I’ve learned from the very best in the business … It’s going to be an amazing show and we’re ready to share it with you all.”
