It’s a sunny day for ERNEST with his brand-new song “Flower Shops (feat. Morgan Wallen)” launching this week as the most added single at Country radio with 88 stations spinning the record now. The Big Loud Records MULTI-PLATINUM artist/songwriter surprise dropped the fan-favorite track on New Year’s Eve, quickly catapulting to #1 at Apple Music Country, Spotify Country, and iTunes overall upon release and now debuting Top 30 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. The melancholic ode was written by ERNEST with Ben Burgess and Mark Holman and produced by Joey Moi. "I'm so grateful for the fans and Country radio for getting behind this song so early on," says ERNEST. "It isn't every day that a record gets this kind of response and I couldn't be happier that 'Flower Shops' is getting so much love."
ERNEST is currently on the road for Chris Lane’s FILL THEM BOOTS TOUR, which kicked off January 13 in Boston, MA. Bringing “Flowers Shops” to the stage each night, the tour will stop this weekend at The Summit in Denver, CO (1/27), The Complex in Salt Lake City, UT (1/28), and Revolution Concert House in Boise, ID (1/29).
