Cole Swindell's first hit single, "Chillin' It," sounds a bit like Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise" as performed by Luke Bryan, and there's a reason for that: prior to taking a stab at a recording career, Swindell was a songwriter, penning songs for Bryan, FGL, and Scotty McCreery. He's a behind-the-scenes bro, responsible for crafting the sound and feel of contemporary country, and his eponymous 2014 album demonstrates the attributes of his craft. Swindell knows his way with a hook, whether it's coming up with a clever title ("Ain't Worth the Whiskey," "Brought to You by Beer," "Dozen Roses & a Six-Pack") and worthy hooks along with melodies that escalate nicely, and the production by Michael Carter and Jody Stevens is crisp and clean, designed to fit within the contours of modern radio. The one problem with the record is that Swindell sounds like a songwriter, not a singer. He has a guy-next-door voice that's ingratiating but not compelling, never pulling listeners into the song. This is where the sonic similarities to Bryan and FGL become a bit of a detriment; it's possible to hear either sing the songs on Cole Swindell with more personality than the man himself. Nevertheless, the album winds up pleasant enough: it's constructed by pros who know how to get tunes on the radio, so it goes down easy even if it sometimes seems like an overblown demo tape. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Following a breakout year, country singer and songwriter Cole Swindell caps it all off with a five-song digital EP release called Down Home Sessions, which includes a couple of songs left off of his self-titled debut album, which was released early in 2014, along with a trio of new songs written and recorded since. ~ Steve Leggett

It's called Down Home Sessions, but this 2016 EP is as bright and bold as either of Cole Swindell's albums. Indeed, "Does It Hurt" rides along on a hip-hop loop, the opposite of anything that could be called down-home, but Swindell still sings about six packs and Chevrolets, which is enough to signify that this is country. If the songs feel a little straitlaced -- they're so tight, they almost seem like publishing demos -- Swindell survives through his sense of craft. He knows the sounds, the hooks, and the themes that will rouse an audience, so these five songs all feel like hits in waiting. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
