cole-swindell

This is likely our last ever chart roundup, so soak it in while you can! This week’s Country Airplay #1 is Cole Swindell’s ‘You Should Be Here’, a track which feels like it was only just released and certainly his fastest rising single to date. It also continues to reign on Hot Country Songs, while Thomas Rhett’s monster hit ‘Die A Happy Man’ holds onto Country Streaming Songs and Tim McGraw’s heartfelt ‘Humble and Kind’ is the new Country Digital Songs leader. There are several new records debuting on the Top Country Albums chart, but it’s Joey + Rory’s ‘Hymns’ collection that retains the #1 spot. Read on for more!

Cole Swindell ‘You Should Be Here’ – Single Review

YouShouldBeHere

We seem to have a shortage of truly sad, poignant songs in mainstream country today. The last few singles that were supposed to be real tear-jerkers that tore at the ole heartstrings, were in fact not that touching. Luke Bryan’s “Drink A Beer” had no emotional feeling in it at all, nor was the lyrical content that moving either. They tried their best to beef it up with promotion including using pictures of Bryan’s deceased siblings and the story of their tragic deaths to put the song into perspective and make it more personal, but alas, it didn’t really hit the mark, at least for me. The same goes for Miranda Lambert’s “Over You”. The single is a nice single, and I certainly think it ranks above a lot of what’s on radio today, but as far as being an emotional ballad that truly touches people, it falters a bit.

Unlike Bryan’s “Drink A Beer”, Miranda’s vocal delivery is very convincing, especially live. The problem with “Over You” lies in the weak lyrical content, the words/verses just don’t pack a punch. Again, promotion used a personal tragedy in the artist’s (or in this case, the songwriter’s) life to help fans connect to the song, but sadly it still falters.
