May 28—NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Grammy-nominated multi-platinum country music superstar Cole Swindell recently earned his 11th career No. 1 single with his current hit, the duet with ACM Top New Female Artist of the Year Lainey Wilson, "Never Say Never."

The powerhouse duet reached No. 1 on both Mediabase and Billboard country singles charts in just 23 weeks. It is the follow-up to Swindell's multiweek No. 1 "Single Saturday Night." The back-to-back No. 1 singles are on his recently released fourth album, "Stereotype."
