TERRELL CO., GA (WALB) - Terrell County commissioners are recognizing their hometown star Cole Swindell of Bronwood. In Wednesday morning's commission meeting, they presented a roadway sign to Swindell's mother, Carol Rainey, in honor of the successful singer, songwriter.

The Department of Transportation will soon post nine others, just like the one presented to Rainey, where all state highways enter the county. Rainey says for her hometown to recognize her son this way is an overwhelming experience.

"It's unbelievable. I just can't believe it and to think back to the day he left this county, going up there, broke my heart," said Rainey. "Now to stand here and be recognized, is just unbelievable."

Tuesday, the artist announced over Facebook that his first headlining tour will begin in November. 

Swindell has also been nominated for New Artist of the Year at this year's Country Music Awards.Terrell County commissioners are recognizing their hometown star Cole Swindell of Bronwood.
