The Fillmore- Silver Spring, MD

    The only way to get Cole Swindell tickets for his Down Home Tour at The Fillmore in Silver Spring was to either pay over face value or find someone selling extras because walking up to the box office you would immediately find yourself staring at a sign in huge black letters; “Sold Out”. I feel as if the “2,500” cap venue held a little more than that amount for this show as all these country fans packed into the standing room only venue to see Swindell play about 14-15 songs within an hour and a half.

All the way from Georgia, Swindell performed all of his most popular hits from some of his records, which included  six of his most familiar singles such as his opening song, Hope You Get Lonely Tonight and Ain’t Worth The Whiskey. Not only did Swindell play multiple hits from his own material, he also mixed in a few cover songs such as Thomas Rhett’s Get Me Some Of That, Luke Bryan’s Roller Coaster and later on in the set he covered Brooks & Dunn’s Red Dirt Road.

Not only was the music flowing throughout the venue as fans swayed back and forth with beers in their hands and smiles on their faces. The lighting effects consisted of strobe lights and rotating spotlights of different colors to match the mood of each song. It felt more as you were in a nightclub/rock show instead of a country show. But that didn’t stop anyone from having a good time.

Swindell closed the night out with a lengthy two song encore that consisted of You Should Be Here and Let Me See Ya Girl. Overall, Swindell proved that he can easily become a headliner in bigger venues next time around. Fantastic set by him.
