Cole Swindell joined co-writers Jaron Boyer (SESAC) and Matt Bronleewe (SESAC) to celebrate the No. 1 hit “Flatliner,” which marks Swindell’s seventh consecutive No. 1 single on the Mediabase chart.

BMI’s David Preston and SESAC’s Shannan Hatch hosted the event, which was held in downtown Nashville at Tootsie’s, before Swindell headlined the 57th annual Birthday Bash for the Nashville institution.

BMI writer Swindell had plenty to celebrate during the event, as he was surprised onstage with a Platinum certification plaque for his song “Middle of a Memory,” which was certified earlier this summer.

Among those celebrating the chart-topping success were Warner Music Nashville’s Cris Lacy, Sony/ATV’s Josh Van Valkenburg, KP Entertainment’s Kerri Edwards, producer Michael Carter, and peer music’s Kim Wiggins.

Each of the six previous singles and two albums Swindell has released since he signed with Warner Bros. Records three years ago have not only all gone to No. 1 on the country charts but have been certified by the RIAA for reaching Gold (500,000+) and/or Platinum (1,000,000) status.
