Cole Swindell and Lainey Wilson gathered with the co-writers of their recent hit duet, “Never Say Never,” on Wednesday (July 13th) in Nashville to celebrate it topping the country charts earlier this year. The song was Cole's 11th career Number One hit and Lainey's second.
The two say “Never Say Never” has helped them both, career-wise, in different ways, and as Lainey tells us, she's very appreciative for that boost from Cole. “I will say I think it's important for people like Cole who have been there, done that, for him to show the rest of the world like, 'Hey, I believe in this girl, maybe you should too.' That is really important, especially for where I'm at in my career and I can't wait to be able to do that for somebody. (Cole) I've told her since day one that this wasn't just helping her, this was gonna help both of us and take us both to whatever that next level we want to be at and I think its definitely done that.”
Cole and Lainey perform their now RIAA-certified gold duet on the upcoming CMA Fest special airing on ABC on Wednesday, August 3rd at 8 p.m. ET and available the next day on Hulu.
