There is new music now with new genres that people enjoy more
The advent of television allowed people to be entertained at home instead of going to dance at a large club with swing music.
Music is very much subject to changing fashions. Big bands gave way to crooning and ballads, and then to a whole series of other musical genres.

My late father's cousins were Tommy & Jimmy Dorsey, who were 2 of the most famous bandleaders of the 1940's until they died in 1957 & 58. They died too young. The big bands were popular in the 40's and part of the 50's, until rock n roll overtook swing music. Big bands have never actually died out, in fact they are making a comeback, with young people particularly attracted to this music. Linda Rondstedt, Michael Buble, Sting, and Rod Stewart, are just a few musicians, that have crossed over into this genre.
Rock and Roll as a musical genre didn't exist until the 50's. In the 40's Big Band swing music was the standard. Jimmy Dorsey was big at the time.

Swing and big band are related. Although there were some small groups that were definitely swing bands, they mirrored the style and most of the arrangements of the big bands. However big bands also played dance music and ballads that weren't really swing tunes even though they used the same instrumentation.
