Cole Swindell’s ‘She Had Me at Heads Carolina’ Stays on Top of the Charts for a Fourth Week
It's yet another week of chart domination for Cole Swindell, who remains at the top of the Billboard Country Airplay chart for a fourth consecutive week with his smash hit, "She Had Me at Heads Carolina."
Additionally, the song is also No. 1 on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart for its first week.
"I continue to be blown away and humbled by the response to this song," Swindell says in a statement. "I knew it was a special song when we wrote it and I knew that it could be a big song, but to now see it happening because of the support of fans and radio has just meant so much to me. Thank you."
"Heads Carolina" is the fastest-rising single of Swindell's career, ascending to the top spot at radio in just 12 weeks. It's his 12th No. 1 single overall, and the third consecutive single from the singer to stay on top of the charts for multiple weeks.
To celebrate week four of No. 1 status, Swindell put out an acoustic version of "Heads Carolina," which features a more stripped-down take of a song that, from the start, has embraced '90s fervor. Swindell's song samples liberally from Jo Dee Messina's "Heads Carolina, Tails California" — with the blessing of the original songwriters — and Messina even makes a cameo in the music video for Swindell's version.
Among Swindell's many recent accomplishments is a hit duet with Lainey Wilson called "Never Say Never," which will bring him to the CMA Awards this November: The duet is nominated for Music Video of the Year and Music Event of the Year. In the meantime, Swindell is keeping busy on the road with his Back Down to the Bar Tour, which launched in late September.
