Scott Swindell Is Running For Re-Election in District 5
Scott Swindell is running for reelection as School Board Representative of District 5. He has served on the school board since April.
He is the grandson of a former Congressman and has worked in real estate for two decades.
He’s best-known for his country music hits; “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight” reached No.1 on the charts in 2015 and went on tour alongside Luke Bryan and Sam Hunt among others.
1. You Should Be Here
Cole Swindell has earned high praise from music critics for creating emotive country songs such as “You Should Be Here”, a poignant tribute to Swindell’s father who passed away before he ever became popular.
This beautifully written song has become an anthem to remember loved ones who have passed. It has been streamed over 400 million times on Spotify and boasts over 90 million views on YouTube; fans love requesting the tune at concerts where Swindell performs.
Swindell shows how an emotionally powerful song can be created without the addition of buzzwords or cultural references – something many country artists try to do so as to seem more contemporary; unfortunately this only serves to diminish its authenticity and credibility. A must-listen for any country fan.
2. Hope You Get Lonely Tonight
Scott Swindell won the 2015 ACM New Artist of the Year award and immediately released his debut full-length album You Should Be Here. Swindell’s single, “Chillin’ It,” quickly rose through iTunes Top Country Songs chart to become his signature tune.
Thomas Rhett, Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line have all collaborated with him on tours or co-headlining treks over time; most recently he announced a spring run of his Down to the Bar Tour with Dustin Lynch as co-headliner. Luke Bryan has written songs that have become staples on numerous albums of today including Scotty McCreery’s and Chase Rice’s songs as well.
William Shakespeare famously reported that Julius Caesar ended his life with six famous words, “Et tu, Brute?” In North Penn High School’s 12th Grade English Class at Lansdale in Pennsylvania, Margaret Burke decided she and her students would rewrite those famous final lines as their end-of-year project – using filming students in Rome!
3. I Love You This Much
Cole Swindell has quickly established himself as one of country music’s rising stars, opening for such iconic acts as Thomas Rhett, Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line – not to mention leading his own Reason to Drink Tour as well as co-headlining on its spring run – becoming an accomplished multi-platinum singer/songwriter and multi-platinum sales artist in his own right. As one of his first professional performances ever as a solo act he even opened for Luke Bryan on an official tour! Swindell co-headlined his Reason To Drink Tour as well as co-headlining Down To the Bar Tour which also saw him opening slots alongside Thomas Rhett who played before Thomas Rhett himself!
Margaret Burke, instructional coach for North Penn High School’s 12th grade literature class in Lansdale, PA wanted her students to experience something unique for their final project. Instead of creating another PowerPoint, Margaret assigned them the challenge of recreating Julius Caesar’s famous six words “Et tu, Brute? Then fall Caesar!” as their final project.
Swindell has decided to reschedule his Down to Earth Tour due to concerns over the coronavirus outbreak, with previously purchased tickets valid on his newly scheduled dates. For more information please visit his website.
4. I Want You Back
After becoming popular on Georgia’s frat house/club scene, Swindell decided to take the leap and move to Nashville. His gamble paid off: his self-titled debut album features three No.1 songs: “Chillin’ It,” “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight” and “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey”. All but one were written by himself.
Margaret Burke, a 12th grade English teacher at North Penn High School in Lansdale, Pennsylvania was frustrated that her students were resisting writing the traditional research papers and long essays that comprise their final assignments. So she and co-teacher Scott Swindell devised an assignment which offered students a way out – standing next to Julius Caesar while recreating his famous last words as they stood together rewriting them themselves!
At Levi’s Stadium or before over 17,000 country music fans at the KFC YUM! Center, Swindell always makes time for his audience. It is vitally important for him that they feel a part of his story.
