Cole Swindell is back at the top of the country radio charts this week with his latest single, “Love You Too Late.”

This marks the Georgia native’s 9th No.1 single as an artist and his 11th as a songwriter. No matter how many times he makes his way to the top of the charts, however, the feeling is just as sweet.

“Love You Too Late’ reaching No. 1 means the world to me because I wrote this one with two of my best friends and favorite songwriters in the world,” Swindell shared in a statement. “Michael, Brandon and I started out writing songs together several years ago, so it’s very special to have our first No. 1 together. Thank you to country radio, the fans and my WMN family for always believing in me and my songs.”

“Love You Too Late” is the second single off Swindell’s latest album, All of It, which was released in August of 2018.

The country hitmaker recently celebrated five years as a recording artist with the release of Down Home Sessions V, a five-song EP. Earlier this month, he wrapped his time on Luke Bryan’s Sunset Repeat Tour and will soon hit the road for a run of headlining dates scheduled through the end of 2019.
