Cole Swindell is undeniably one of the nicest guys in country music. He has a smile, a hug and a kind word for everyone. And it’s possible he has a hit for everyone, too. He sure had one for Thomas Rhett when he wrote “Get Me Some of That.”
But Cole wasn’t alone in penning that 2014 hit. He was actually joined in the writer’s room by two other Georgia boys in writer, producer, and musician Michael Carter and one of his musical heroes, the legendary Rhett Akins.
“When I was younger I loved the songs Rhett Akins was writing,” Cole tells Rare Country. “He was a Georgia boy, and I was a big fan of his music. After living in Nashville for a few years, I was fortunate enough to sit down and write a song with him and Michael Carter. The song that came out of that writing session was ‘Get Me Some of That.’”
He adds, “I went from being a fan of Rhett’s to writing a song with him that his son recorded and made my first No. 1 as a songwriter. That doesn’t happen anywhere but Nashville!”
That’s the truth.
Now, there’s no question that “Get Me Some of That” is Thomas Rhett’s song, but Cole gives it a decidedly different and darned good spin on his newest volume of his popular “Down Home Sessions,” which Rare Country is premiering exclusively. In fact, you can hear Cole’s versions of several songs that he had a hand in writing, including the Luke Bryan smash, “Roller Coaster” and Craig Campbell’s “Outta My Head,” when “Down Home Sessions IV” drops on Nov. 24.
Get you some of THAT!
