How many of us have a phone number stuck in your head? Could be your home number as a kid or, like me, a number of your first crush, but those numbers really become unforgettable.
Funny how those digits can stick. 666-3132 will never leave me as long as I live after thousands of hours tallking with my teenage crush. Before texting, social media and phones that store numbers, I wonder if future generations will remember numbers like we have?
Cole Swindell sure remembers.
"Everybody kind of knows my story from 'You Should be Here,' losing my dad unexpectedly, and I've heard so many 'You Should be Here' stories. And to know that a song like that, that really hits you, is more powerful than probably anything I've ever put out makes me want to record more songs like that. We've still got the fun stuff, but songs like 'Dad's Old Number,' I know from experience listening to that song what it does to me and anybody. It doesn't have to be their dad. Anybody that's lost someone, and still has that number, and they just don't think twice sometimes and dial it up on accident. It's a pretty powerful feeling. And I think a lot of people are going to love this song. It's going to hit them. Songs like this are why I love country music."
