Cole Swindell Celebrates His Fiancée Courtney With ‘Forever to Me’ [LISTEN]

Cole Swindell is celebrating his fiancée, Courtney Little, in his new song, out now. The singer-songwriter just released “Forever to Me,” a song he co-wrote about his relationship with Little, ahead of their upcoming nuptials.

“I wanted to write a song that’s special to me and also special to Courtney,” Swindell tells his record label. “And to be living in a moment and write about it, I don’t think it ever gets more real than that. Although I will say I can’t believe that this is me writing this, this is me singing it. But I know there are other people out there that feel the exact same, and I think that’s why we all love country music.”

The song says in part, “She gave a yes to the dress with her mama / That’s gonna be somethin’ to see / She gave her heart to Jesus / And He gave her to me / I wish she could’ve met my daddy / Know how happy he would be / That I gave her a diamond and she gave forever to me.” Swindell spoke about the song on social media as well.

“Thanks to Greylan James and Rocky Block for hopping on that last minute bus run to Texas and writing this one with me,’ Swindell wrote. “Also to Greylan and Jordan Schmidt for getting it just right. Proud to have this one with y’all.”

Little starred in the video for Swindell’s “Some Habits” single, from his 2022 Stereotype album. The Georgia native proposed to Little last fall, after first asking permission from her father.

“That’s probably the most nervous I’ve ever been because he’s such a great man,” Swindell admitted to People. “I can’t wait to be part of her family. She comes from a good one, and that’s what made that so nerve-wracking. I can’t imagine being a dad of a daughter and having that conversation.”

Swindell and Little were en route to the ACM Awards in Texas last year, on his bus, when he popped the question in Orlinda, where the “Some Hearts” video was filmed.

“She recognized the location,” Swindell recalled. “She probably knew what was going on then. I took her hand and walked for what felt like a long time. It probably wasn’t but a minute or so.”

“At that point, I couldn’t wait any longer,” he added. “I found a little spot right there off the side of the gravel drive in the field and hit a knee.”

The 40-year-old has yet to announce a wedding date, although it will happen this year. More than anything, Swindell is grateful to have found his soulmate, even if it took a while.

“It’s hard to put into words how happy I am,” Swindell shared when announcing their engagement. “I feel like I’m very fortunate to be where I am in my career, but I feel like I’ve missed out on a lot of real-life moments. I’m just glad to have somebody to share everything with. She makes me better, and I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in all parts of my life.”
