Swindell brings the tour to the Canton Civic Center on Saturday, October 21st with Conner Smith and Greylan James.

Each show on the 12-city tour will have a limited-edition poster unique to that city representing some of the biggest hits. Click links below to hear Swindell tell the stories each night behind each of the songs represented on the limited edition poster.

Show #1 – Fargo, ND – “Chillin’ It” poster (first #1 song)
Show #2 – Cedar Rapids, IA – “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight” poster (2nd #1 song)

Stay tuned to Swindell’s Instagram for the poster reveal and stories behind the limited-edition posters for Fort Wayne, IN, Saginaw, MI and Canton, OH.

Swindell is currently nominated for Musical Event of the Year for “She Had Me At Heads Carolina” with Jo Dee Messina for the 57th CMA Awards on Nov. 8. The multi-award winning single is currently the fifth most played song at country radio in 2023.

He was recently surprised with plaques commemorating his massive “She Had Me At Heads Carolina” was certified 3X Platinum by the RIAA and his album Stereotype was certified GOLD.

The Georgia native just wrapped a summer on the road for Thomas Rhett’s Home Team Tour, which kicked off in May just days after he took home three ACM Awards for Single of the Year and Song of the Year (as songwriter and artist). Also at the ACM Awards he had one of the most buzzworthy performances of the night, singing “She Had Me At Heads Carolina” with Jo Dee Messina.

Earlier this year he won Country Song of the Year for “She Had Me At Heads Carolina” at the iHeart Music Awards, earned a pair of nominations at the 2023 CMT Music Awards and was nominated for Male Artist of the Year at the MusicRow Awards.

Swindell’s most recent Top-10 single
 “Drinkaby” follows three Platinum-certified, multi-week No. 1 singles from his fourth album Stereotype: “Never Say Never” with Lainey Wilson, “Single Saturday Night” and, most recently, his 3X Platinum-selling “She Had Me At Heads Carolina,” which remained in the Top 5 for 24 consecutive weeks.
