Cole Swindell and Luke Bryan
How exactly did Cole Swindell go from Luke Bryan's merch guy to the "Crash My Party" singer's opening act? Well, when Cole was sitting on the front porch of his fraternity house and Luke strolled by hours before his concert in town later that night, they got to chatting about music and special friendship blossomed.
Six years later when Cole was searching for a job in Nashville, Luke offered him a merch gig that later turned into something way bigger. After a little on-road songwriting with Florida Georgia Line—Luke's opening act at the time—Cole's bromance with Luke exploded after he wrote songs for him like, "Beer in the Headlights," "Love in a College Town," and "Shore Thing."
