Cole Swindell's New Wall Decor

Heavy metal is Cole Swindell's thing if a recent Nashville get-together is any indication.

Swindell and a handful of Nashville VIPs gathered last week to celebrate his sixth No.1 single "Middle of a Memory," which almost always includes the presentation of a snazzy record plaque or two.

One was notably special, however. The night's big presentation was a plaque commemorating Gold certification for Swindell's sophmore album You Should Be Here. Both of his albums and every single he's released in the last three years has gone to No. 1 and been certified Gold or Platinum by the RIAA, according to his record label.

That's one shiny trophy wall!
