A Nashville native with an unpredictable style and personality to match, hitmaker ERNEST is now turning heads on both sides of the singer-songwriter game – and his career is just getting started. Described by Music Row as “The Charmer”, ERNEST is a triple threat talent and has quickly become one of the most sought-after co-writers on Music Row.
This bright new talent fuses a broad range of influences stretching from Eminem to George Strait, and has now scored five #1 smashes with Morgan Wallen’s “More Than My Hometown,” Florida Georgia Line’s “I Love My Country,” Chris Lane’s “Big, Big Plans,” and Sam Hunt’s “Breaking Up Was Easy In The 90’s.” A MULTI-PLATINUM hit with Diplo and Wallen’s “Heartless” is also part of his growing catalog, and other notable cuts include Lane’s current single, “Fill Them Boots,” Kane Brown’s “One Mississippi,” FGL’s “Blessings,” and more – including 11 tracks on Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album.
As an artist, the eccentric free spirit released his vibrant debut album “Locals Only” on Big Loud Records in 2019 and followed up with the hand-on-your-heart anthems, “Cheers,” and “American Rust.” He also appeared alongside 90s country legend David Lee Murphy and Big Loud Records labelmate Ben Burgess on the HIXTAPE: Vol. 2 track “Red Dirt Clouds.” His podcast Just Being ERNEST kicked off in the spring of 2020 and has hosted big-name guests including Keith Urban, Diplo, Jason Aldean and more.
Out now, his brand-new track “Flower Shops (feat. Morgan Wallen)” charted #1 at Apple Music Country, Spotify Country, and iTunes overall upon release. Adding to this, the new single was launched at US radio in January this year and secured a phenomenal 88 first week adds, the #1 most added single of the week, and was Top 25 after just 6 weeks!
