Cole Swindell to Launch 1st Major Headlining Tour in 2018 With Lauren Alaina & Chris Janson

Fresh off of the release of his Down Home Sessions IV EP on Nov. 24, Cole Swindell has announced a new Reason to Drink Tour.

The tour, which will be Cole’s first major headlining gig, will kick off on Feb. 15 with openers Chris Janson and Lauren Alaina.

“I am excited to be able to take everything I have learned while on the road the last four years watching all that Luke [Bryan], Jason [Aldean], Kenny [Chesney], Dierks [Bentley] and [Florida Georgia Line] did as headliners,” said Cole. “Everything from how they treat their fans and their high-energy performances, to how they treated everyone on the tour. They were great examples of how much work it takes for a successful tour. I can honestly say I’ve learned from the very best in the business. I’m ready to get out there with two of my friends, Chris Janson and Lauren Alaina. Start to finish, it’s going to be an amazing show and we’re ready to share it with you all.”

Pre-sale tickets go on sale on Nov. 28. Tickets go on sale to the public in most markets on Dec. 1.
