Break Up in the End: Cole Swindell and Barbie Blank Split After Making Their Red Carpet Debut
Country singer Cole Swindell and professional wrestler Barbie Blank first confirmed their relationship in April, attending the 2019 ACM Awards together
After making their debut as a couple back in April, the country singer, 36, and professional wrestler ended their relationship a number of weeks ago, PEOPLE confirms.
At the time, Blank shared a selfie with Swindell in the car on the way to the show on her Instagram Story, writing alongside the image, “Here we go! #ACMAWARDS”
The WWE star hinted at her relationship with Swindell in February, after the "Love You Too Late" singer expressed his gratitude for the Academy of Country Music and songwriters behind “Break Up in the End,” which was nominated for song of the year. (The award ultimately went to Dan + Shay‘s hit single "Tequila.")
“I am beyond excited and proud of you babe!!!” Blank tweeted that month, followed by a praising-hands emoji.
Blank hinted at their relationship on Instagram ahead of confirming it — and even though she hadn’t shared a photo of the pair as a couple on her main feed, she had tagged many photos with a Nashville, Tennessee, location.
“Baby can we get chick fil a pleaseeeeee 🍟” she captioned a March photo of herself in Music City.

“I’m single but I’ve been in relationships and I’ve been through [the] lyrics of ‘Breakup in the End’ and know what that’s like,” Swindell said. “There are love songs on here, like 'I'll Be Your Small Town,' that I hope when I settle down I can be that for somebody, but right now I’m focused on the album.”
“Hopefully, it’ll happen when it’s supposed to happen,” the musician noted.
E! News was the first to report the split.
