Quantcast
THE 411 ON THE 615

Shortly after his rollicking CMA Fest performance at Nashville’s Nissan Stadium—during which he gave fans a taste of his forthcoming full-length, All of It (due 8/17)—Warner Music Nashville’s Cole Swindell poses for this power pic with CMA boss Sarah Trahern, WMN chief John Esposito and super-manager Kerri Edwards of KP Entertainment. Cole’s CMA exploits also included a sold-out fan party at label HQ, a midnight set at Spotify’s Late Night Jam at Ole Red and a Saturday-night blowout at Ascend Amphitheater’s Cracker Barrel Country Roads Stage. After this photo op he was permitted a 10-minute lunch break.

Joneseing for more Nashville news? Head over to Music City—by which we mean the section of our website bearing that name—for updates on all manner of country-music machinations, including CMA-week festivities featuring Swindell, Old Dominion, Midland and Ashley McBryde; Kenny Chesney's fund to benefit the Virgin islands; a "Country Legend Award" for Randy Travis; a plaque bestowal on Brett Young; and plenty more. It's so Nashville you can practically taste the bourbon. Start right here.
