Cole Swindell just released the music video for “Down To The Bar,” his collaboration with HARDY, and it features special guest appearances from Travis Denning and Ashley Cooke.
The track inspired the name of his Down To The Bar Tour, which he just wrapped last month. Swindell’s tourmates, Denning and Cooke, also star in the new video, alongside Swindell and HARDY.
The majority of the scenes were filmed at Luke Bryan’s 32 Bridge on Broadway in Nashville. Swindell acts as a bartender while Denning’s character makes his way to the bar after suffering what appears to be a bad breakup with Cooke’s character.
“Well, my acting debut is here. Might also be my acting farewell,” Denning joked on Instagram following the release of the music video.
Swindell says help loved having his friends and tourmates join him on set.
“I had so much fun on my Down To The Bar Tour with Travis and Ashley out on the road with me this spring,” Swindell shares. “We just carried that good time over to this video and I hope fans can see how much fun that tour was for all of us. This video would not have been the same without them and it’s awesome to have HARDY be such a big part of the song/video as well. They added a lot to the tour and it just felt right to have them in the video that the tour was named after.”
“Down To The Bar” was penned by Swindell, Michael Hardy, Jordan Schmidt and Josh Thompson and follows the release of his multi-week No. 1 single “Never Say Never.” The Lainey Wilson duet acted as the second single released off his fourth studio album, Stereotype.
