Cole Swindell’s fastest-rising single to date, “She Had Me At Heads Carolina,” has spent another week at the top of the Billboard Country Airplay chart. Notching his fourth consecutive week, Swindell is the only artist in 2022 to achieve this feat. The song also reached the top of the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart.
The track, which harkens back to Jo Dee Messina‘s 1996 hit “Heads Carolina, Tails California,” was produced by Zach Crowell and co-written by Swindell, Ashley Gorley, Jesse Frasure, Thomas Rhett and the original song’s writers Mark D. Sanders and Tim Nichols. Swindell recently spoke to MusicRow about the making of the song.
To celebrate the success of “She Had Me At Heads Carolina,” Swindell released a new acoustic version of the tune.
The track follows previously released singles “Single Saturday Night” and “Never Say Never” with Lainey Wilson, and has been a top 10 most streamed country song for the past 14 consecutive weeks. His 12th career No. 1, the song has amassed nearly 200 million global streams with the largest airplay audience for a country No. 1 this year.
“I continue to be blown away and humbled by the response to this song,” Swindell shares. “I knew it was a special song when we wrote it and I knew that it could be a big song, but to now see it happening because of the support of the fans and radio, has just meant so much to me. Thank you.”
The decorated entertainer recently launched his headlining “Back Down To The Bar Tour” with Ashley Cooke and Dylan Marlowe with upcoming shows in Colorado and Arizona. He will visit Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium with two sold out back-to-back shows on Nov. 2 and 3.
