“I wrote the song with two of our really good friends, Chase McGill and Jessi Alexander. I was in Lainey’s hometown in Louisiana playing the last show of the year a couple of years ago, and we wrote this song that weekend. We knew it was special and we could tell it was going to be a rocking song with a lot of energy, but the way we wrote it we knew it had to be a duet. We were trying to find the right person that could sing it and make it feel like it needed to. I’ve been a big fan of Lainey’s music, so when she popped into my head we knew that she was it.”
“I take a whole lot of pride in my own songwriting and my own art. People pitch me things and I am a stickler, I’m not going to lie. It’s got to hit me right in the heart. It’s gotta make me feel something and it’s gotta make me feel like I wrote it. I listened to the first verse and the chorus and I was like Holy moly! This song is special and it made me feel something. I’ve been a fan of Cole’s for the longest time and look up to him as a songwriter, entertainer, and artist so I couldn’t say yes quick enough.”

“I don’t know anyone who hasn’t been in this situation at some point in time. I was telling Cole the other day, it’s like that piece of chocolate cake that you know you shouldn’t have but you take it anyway. We’ve all been there, so we can all relate even if you’ve never been in a relationship in your life. It’s hard sometimes to have a rocking song that’s also passionate, and I think this song does that. It makes you feel all the things. It makes you wanna say Hell yeah! and it makes you want to kiss somebody.”
“It’s been a while since I released my last album, so it’s hard to put into words how much it means to me to get this album Stereotypeout there. So much has changed in the world and even in my own life the past few years. I think all that has given me a chance to evaluate what’s really important in life and made me stronger. I believe this album reflects that in the most positive ways. I feel through all of the highs and lows and feeling every emotion in the last three years I think the fans are going to find there is a song on here for everyone, at least I hope so. I always want my songs to make a difference like they did for me in writing some of them.”

Meet Cole Swindell’s girlfriend Courtney Little. Courtney is a former NBA cheerleader and owner of the boutique clothing store The Little Sisters.
Courtney appeared in the music video for Cole’s song Some Habits.
“We met several years ago actually. You know, I’m a big NASCAR fan and she works with Monster and you know we just kind of met and exchanged numbers and kept in touch over the years, but it never was anything just kind of friends, randomly saw her here and there, but the video kind of changed everything.”
“I have a lot to be thankful for. I moved to Nashville with a dream, and if it all ended tomorrow, I think a lot of people would be surprised that I even got this far. That took moving out of my hometown. It took leaving school and just a lot of things. I didn’t know it for a while, but it turned out to be worth it.”
“I think it’s a song that is connecting with people. Whether they want to admit it or not, a lot of people out there have been in relationships or done things that maybe it’s not the smartest thing. You both know it, but it’s just tough. You can’t help who you love.”
