Cole Swindell’s Mom, Betty Carol Rainey, has Passed Away

Our hearts and thoughts are with Cole Swindell.

He shared on Monday (September 13th) that his mom, Betty Carol Rainey, has passed away.

On his Instagram story, Cole posted a picture out a plane window with the comment, “Took this on the flight home to Georgia this afternoon. Lost my sweet Mom today. I know she’s up there. Gonna miss her so much. Love y’all.”

Cole lost his dad. William Keith Swindell, unexpectedly in 2013 – sadly, it also happened in September, on the 2nd.

It was the loss of his father that inspired Cole’s very personal & powerful song “You Should Be Here.”
