This year, Swindell has performed his seventh career No. 1 single “Flatliner,” which features his mentor/friend and 2017 What the Hell World Tour mate Dierks Bentley, on the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards telecast live on CBS and again this summer for the “CMA Fest” special that aired this summer on ABC Television.

Since launching his career in 2014, Swindell has toured with the biggest superstars in country music, including Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, and Dierks Bentley.
