Country star Cole Swindell coming to The Rose

Country star Cole Swindell will headline a Military Appreciation Night at The Rose Music Center at The Heights on Thursday, Sept. 5.

The four-time ACM Award winner and multi-platinum-selling recording artist will honor local servicemen and women in a concert that also marks the 10th anniversary of his self-titled debut album, which was released in February 2014. His hits include “Chillin’ It,” “Ain’t Worth The Whiskey,” “Let Me See Ya Girl,” “Single Saturday Night,” “Never Say Never,” and “She Had Me At Heads Carolina.”

The concert is also billed as a Hometown Heroes program presented by The Big Hoopla. Founded in 2012, The Big Hoopla has donated over 100,000 tickets to Airmen/Guardians/civilians and their families at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, veterans, and local students since its inception. Organizers said the Hometown Heroes program “honors our community’s servicemen and women affiliated with Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and the Air National Guard base in Springfield. The program began in 2003 and has grown with the generosity of local businesses to support thousands of military families in the region.” For more information about the program, visit
