Cole says with a laugh, ” It’s funny — somebody [was] joking, like, ‘Why is Cole Swindell wishing bad on this girl hoping she gets lonely?’ But, you listen to the song, it’s a good ‘Hope You Get Lonely.’ Yeah, you just hope the girl wants to see you as much as you want to see her.”

Cole goes on to say “Hope You Get Lonely” is one of his favorite songs on his self-titled debut album, which also features his #1 hit “Chillin It.”

“I’m excited about having a new song out, and just the whole album, man,” says Cole. “I’m glad people get to hear more of me than just ‘Chillin’ It,’ ’cause I have several other songs on the album that cover all the bases.”

Look for Cole to perform on ABC’s CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock special coming up Tuesday, August 5 at 8 p.m. ET.
