Cole Swindell‘s self-titled debut album has earned platinum certification from the RIAA. The project includes four No. 1 songs, including gold-certified “Let Me See Ya Girl,” as well as platinum-certified “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight,” “Ain’t Worth The Whiskey,” and “Chillin’ It.”

“Wow, I just got the news about my album going platinum, and I am so taken aback,” said Swindell. “That is one of those things you hope you can achieve but can never really prepare yourself for it actually happening. Being a part of the country music family is something I take seriously, and I am truly honored.”

In March, Swindell’s “You Should Be Here” topped the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart, accounts for streaming, radio airplay and digital sales. The song marks Swindell’s fifth consecutive No. 1 single, and eighth overall as a songwriter. He performed the tune onstage at the Grand Ole Opry on March 26. His forthcoming album, You Should Be Here, is due May 6 via Warner Bros./Warner Music Nashville.

Additionally, Swindell has been announced as a performer at the ACM Awards on Sun., April 3.
