Country star Cole Swindell has a major reason to celebrate. His latest radio single, the moving ballad "You Should Be Here," reached the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts (for its second consecutive week), as well as the Billboard Hot Country Airplay charts, for the week of April 9, 2016. The song charted on the airplay charts for 15 weeks, and it moved up one spot from the previous week's position at No. 2.

Background on 'You Should Be Here'

The song was co-penned by Swindell and country songwriter Ashley Gorley. Acclaimed musician and guitar player Michael Carter served as his producer, and it was released on December 14 to the radio airwaves, via his record label, Warner Music Nashville.

Director Michael Monaco filmed the music video for the song, which was quite melancholy, since it deals with Swindell mourning the loss of his father at a cemetery along with his two brothers. 

"You Should Be Here" is the lead single and title track from his forthcoming studio album, which will be released on May 6. It is played consistently on the country radio airwaves in New York, which include New York's NASH FM 94.7.

'You Should Be Here': Another chart-topper for Swindell

Swindell is not a stranger to No. 1 songs on country radio. His breakthrough single, "Chillin' It," reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, while "Hope You Get Lonely Tonight" and "Ain't Worth The Whiskey" both topped the Billboard Hot Country Airplay charts. His previous radio single, "Let Me See Ya Girl," went No.

His self-titled debut studio album peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Top Country Albums charts, which has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). It also reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200 all-genre charts.

For all of his commercial success, Swindell was named "New Artist of the Year" by the Academy of Country Music (ACM) in 2015, proving that he is a true force to be reckoned with in the Nashville music scene.
