We’ve been waiting a week to find out which country artist will headline Yakima’s Hop Country Music Festival this fall and now we know it! And they are not joking.
Ol’ King Cole is a cheerful young soul
Multi-platinum superstar Cole Swindell brings his brand of young, homegrown country music to Yakima. You may have seen Cole’s recently released single “Never Say Never”, a duet with his friend and rising BBR Music Group star Lainey Wilson from his new album Stereotype. If not… check out his success with “The Wrong Side of the Law – Break for Freedom” video!
Super successful so far
Let’s fill in some of the highlights of his incredible, short but rocket-propelled career.
The multi-week No. 1 hit “Never Say Never” is his 11th career No. 1 following the multi-week No. 1 debut album “Single Saturday Night,” which has amassed more than 245 million streams worldwide.
In the seven years since his debut on Warner Music Nashville, Swindell has racked up an impressive 11 No. 1 singles as an artist – 12 No. 1s as a songwriter. Make room on the shelf for – nine Platinum-certified singles (four 2x Platinum singles), a Platinum-certified debut album (Cole Swindell) and a Gold-certified second album (You Should Be Here).
The Georgian hitmaker has nearly 5 BILLION in global career streams. His massive GRAMMY-nominated hit ‘Break Up In The End’ was named NSAI Song of the Year (2019)
Chinook Fest leads the way
So it’s clear he’s got the chops and fans are loving him with his big smile, ball hat, approachable style for everyone,… everyone looking like who he is – l one of Country’s hot young guns.
Music lovers should know that the annual Chinook Fest Cascades Music Extravaganza camp, normally held in September, runs from June 10-12. This means that the Country Hop Music Festival will take place during what was previously known as the Chinook Fest weekend…so…plan to do both! The Hop Country Music Festival will be held September 9-10 at SOZO, 2200 S. 36th Avenue in Yakima, WA.
