The collaboration dropped late last week and officially went to country radio on Monday. By the close of business on the East Coast, the song earned a whopping 89 adds at country radio, making it the most-added new country song of the week.
Co-written by Swindell alongside Jessi Alexander and Chase McGill, “Never Say Never” serves as the country hitmaker’s 1th career radio single. The track follows the Georgia native’s back-to-back No. 1 hits “Love You Too Late” and “Single Saturday Night.”
The duet finds Swindell and Wilson grappling over the end of a relationship. They both acknowledge that it’s time to move on, however, they admit that it’s nearly impossible to do so.
“I never say never with you/ I end up together with you/ It’s hell and it’s heaven with you, baby/ Anything’s possible/ The highs are unstoppable/ It’s so uncontrollable, it’s crazy/ We say we won’t and then we do/ You’re all I want, I never say never with you,” Swindell and Wilson sing on the chorus.

“I am so excited to release ‘Never Say Never’,” Swindell shared upon the song’s release. “I wrote ‘Never Say Never’ with Jessi Alexander and Chase McGill in 2018 about a relationship you just can’t stay away from. I have been a fan of Lainey Wilson’s for a while now and what she brings to this song is everything it needed. So glad it’s finally out!”
“’Things a Man Oughta Know’ was such an incredible ride, I can’t wait to get this next song out into the world and see where it leads,” Wilson added. “It makes the journey that much more special that I get to share it with a friend this time around—I’m looking forward to playing it for y’all and I’m sure Cole is too!”
