Swindell’s eighth No.1; Tenpenny’s
first No. 1

By Preshias Harris for Country Music News International Magazine & Radio Show

Cole Swindell recently celebrated his
eighth No.1 single as an artist. “Break Up In The End” was written by Chase
McGill, Jessie Jo Dillon and Jon Nite, and produced by Michael Carter.  The No. 1 party was hosted by ASCAP and BMI
at The Topgolf in Nashville.

Both McGill and Nite have had  successful, award-winning careers as
songwriters, but “Break Up In The End” was the first No. 1 for Dillon, who was
presented with a Taylor guitar to mark the accomplishment.  The presentation was made by BMI’s Leslie Roberts.

Swindell was commended for going with an
‘outside’ song; that is, a song that he did not write or co-write himself,
although he is known as a successful songwriter. Named MusicRow Breakthrough
Songwriter of the Year in 2014, he has also received the CMA Triple Play Award
for writing three No. 1 hits within a twelve-month period.  But in the case of “Break Up In The End,”
Swindell and his label chose to release a song that came from outside writers. (As
it happens, Swindell has written previously with Jessie Jo Dillon, but did not
know she was one of the writers of “Break Up” when he heard the demo.)

During the presentation, Warner Nashville’s
John Esposito noted that Swindell is the only artist to have ever topped
Country Aircheck’s chart with his first seven singles, prior to this his eighth
No.1. Esposito presented Swindell with an RIAA Gold plaque, adding that the
Platinum plaque “is on the way.”

On February 11, it was time for Mitchell
Tenpenny to celebrate at a No. 1 party for “Drunk Me.” The song was written by
Tenpenny with Jordan Schmidt and Justin Wilson. 
The party, co-hosted by ASCAP, BMI and SESAC was held at the Tin Roof in
Nashville.

“Drunk Me” is Tenpenny’s debut single from
his debut album, “Telling All My Secrets,” released in February 2018. Tenpenny
was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee. He graduated from Middle Tennessee
State University with a degree in music business. 

Jordan Schmidt is a multi-platinum
songwriter and producer who has worked with Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean
and Kane Brown among others. Justin Wilson has had chart-topping singles with
Michael Ray and Randy Houser, as well as cuts by Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton and
more.
