Watchin’ Girls Go By: Cole Swindell Scores a Judge’s Seat at Miss America

Warner Music NashvilleCole Swindell will be one of the judges at this year’s Miss America pageant. The “You Should Be Here” hitmaker joins entrepreneur and Shark Tank star Mark Cuban as one of the first round panelists, with more to be announced.

“I love a good competition and am looking forward to helping choose a winner,” Cole says. Last year, Brett Eldredge represented country music by filling one of the judge’s seats.

Hosted by The Bachelor’s Chris Harrison and ESPN’s Sage Steele, the 2017 Miss America Competition will air live from Atlantic City, New Jersey on Sunday, September 11 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC. Right now, Cole's current hit, "Middle of a Memory" is poised to break into the top-20.
