With his simple yet poignant way of capturing universal feelings, Cole Taylor has quickly become an in-demand country songwriter, with Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan, Cole Swindell, Darius Rucker, Chase Rice and others lining up to record his songs. But since no one can truly sing a Cole Taylor song quite like he can, the Georgia native has developed a reputation as an artist with a unique knack for singing timeless truths with a fresh melodic twist. Nine months after moving from Cuthbert, Georgia, to Music City, Taylor signed a publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing Nashville in November 2013. Since then, he has released two of his own EP’s and had two songs reach #1 on the country music charts; “Sippin’ On Fire” by Florida Georgia Line and “Home Alone Tonight” by Luke Bryan featuring Karen Fairchild of Little Big Town. Cole has found success writing with top songwriters such as Jimmy Robbins, Rodney Clawson, Ryan Hurd, Matt Dragstrem, Cole Swindell, and more. (Provided by Hill Entertainment Group)
