Warner Bros./Warner Music Nashville’s Cole Swindell will release a sophomore album, You Should Be Here, on May 6. To support the effort, Swindell has announced tour dates through July.

Although the album artwork has not been unveiled, the emotional lead single has been sent to radio. “You Should Be Here,” co-written by Swindell and Ashley Gorley, is a tribute to Swindell’s late father. After its official impact date, the title track vaulted to the Top 15 in only three weeks, while the digital track has sold 197,000 units over seven weeks. It follows a string of No. 1 hits for Swindell including “Let Me See Ya Girl,” “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight,” “Ain’t Worth The Whiskey” and “Chillin’ It.”

Over the past year, Swindell’s achievements include ACM New Artist of the Year Award and CMA Triple Play recipient for earning (at least) three No. 1 songs in a 12-month period. For songwriting, he is a four-time 2015 BMI Award winner for writing No. 1 hits for Thomas Rhett, Florida Georgia Line, and Luke Bryan.
