As one of the most prevalent songwriters in Nashville, country sensation Cole Swindell knows a thing or two about writing hit songs.
This year, the 33-year-old singer was honored at the BMI Awards for two of his own tracks, “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey” and “Let Me See Ya Girl.” While celebrating on the red carpet, Cole took a few minutes to talk to us about what excites him most about the night and, of course, show off his new bling.
When asked if his BMI medal was the only jewelry he had on, Cole replied, “It is, yeah… I heard I didn’t need to wear any because I was gonna get one of these.”
I’ve got to say, that medal looks right at home around Cole’s neck.
Cole also shared with us his favorite Kenny Chesney song (“The Good Stuff”) and talked about his love for songwriters.
“I’m about to walk in there and see one of my favorite artists, Kenny Chesney, along a lot of other of my favorite writers,” Cole said. “I mean, that’s what this is all about, the songwriters and that’s why I moved to this town… I’ll be freaking out over there if you need me.”
