Country music singer/songwriter Cole Swindell will perform at 7:30 p.m. March 13 at 1st Summit Arena @ Cambria County War Memorial, 326 Napoleon St. in downtown Johnstown.

Swindell, a platinum-selling recording artist and record-breaking 11-time No. 1 singer/songwriter, has racked up an incomparable record-breaking eight No. 1 singles, the only solo artist in the history of the Country Aircheck/Mediabase to top the charts with his first seven singles.

He has 10 No. 1 singles as a songwriter; one 1 billion audience-reaching single “You Should Be Here”; six platinum singles; a platinum-certified debut album, “Cole Swindell;” and a gold-certified sophomore album, “You Should Be Here.”

Swindell also has numerous songwriting honors and awards.

His  No. 1 singles include “Chillin’ It,” “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight,” “Ain’t Worth The Whiskey,” “Let Me See Ya Girl,” “You Should Be Here,” “Middle of a Memory” and “Flatliner.”

Brennan Mihalick, director of arenas for 1st Summit Arena @ Cambria County War Memorial, said they are excited to have somebody the caliber of Swindell coming to the arena.

“He’s found as much success with a mic as he has with his pen, so Cole’s bringing a very well-rounded, award-winning presence to our stage,” he said. “This is the annual show that we do in partnership with McAneny Brothers Inc., so we want to thank them for helping to make this possible.”

The Georgia native released his third album, “All of It” on Aug. 17, and it debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard country album chart and No. 7 on the Billboard Top 200.

The first single “Break Up In The End” was the most added song at country radio the week it was released, sitting in the Top 5 on the country radio charts.

Swindell debuted his new single “Love You Too Late” live on ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” and on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” in December.  

To date, Swindell has sold 2.4 million total album equivalents in the four years since his debut, including 6.3 million-plus tracks sold and over 1.2 billion on-demand streams.

In May, he wrapped “Reason To Drink Tour,” the first of his career as the headliner.

Swindell, Dustin Lynch and Lauren Alaina will team up for “Reason to Drink ... Another Tour” this month, and it will run throughout the end of the year.

Ticket prices start at $45.

Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at the 1st Summit Arena box office, online at or by calling 800-745-3000.
