The EP opens with his smooth version of “Roller Coaster,” a song that Swindell co-wrote that became a chart-topping single for country superstar Luke Bryan. It is followed by a gentle rendition of “Get Me Some of That,” which was a No. 1 country single for Thomas Rhett. Equally fun is his take on Craig Campbell’s “Outta My Head,” which he co-wrote.
His cover of “This is How We Roll” is infectious, and it would make country duo Florida Georgia Line proud. It closes with the mid-tempo, drinking song “Beer in the Headlights,” which was an album cut on Luke Bryan’s Crash My Party album.
Overall, it is a pleasure to hear Cole Swindell offer his own interpretations on these five songs that he co-wrote, which became major hits for other country acts. He does that that well on his Down Home Sessions IV EP, and leaves his fans and listeners wanting to hear more, which perhaps he can do on the next EP in his Down Home Sessions series. This project garners 4.5 out of 5 stars.
