Luke Bryan Looks to Find Songwriting Magic With Cole Swindell on “Sunset Repeat Tour”

Luke Byran kicked off his headlining Sunset Repeat Tour on May 31 with support from longtime friend Cole Swindell, who has toured with Luke a number of times—both as an opener and as his merch-selling dude.

Six shows are already in the books, with more than 20 dates remaining, so there’s a good chance Luke and Cole will join forces to pen a few songs during their downtime. The guys have co-penned tunes before, including Florida Georgia Line’s smash hit, “This Is How We Roll,” as well as “I Just Want You” from Cole’s self-titled debut album in 2014.

As Luke told Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown, he’s really looking forward to hanging with his friend and letting the “vibe of the tour breed new music.”

“I’m really excited about those little opportunities to have fun song ideas,” says Luke. “When you’re hanging after a show, you know, having some drinks, talking, cutting up—you get fun song ideas, and you’re like, ‘Hey, we need to write this idea!’ As long as you’re out there living in the moment of the tour, you can let the vibe of the tour breed new music.”
