Country music visionary, ERNEST, had a record year. After dropping his first full-length album FLOWER SHOPS (THE ALBUM) in March, 2022 saw him earn his fifth, sixth, and seventh #1s as a songwriter while his debut single “Flower Shops” feat. Morgan Wallen simultaneously reached RIAA platinum certification. Selling out his first-ever headline tour across college towns this past fall, he rounded out a stacked year of touring on the road with labelmate Morgan Wallen as part of his record-breaking Dangerous Tour, and will hit the road next year as direct support on Wallen’s One Night At A Time World Tour.
The charismatic entertainer turns the page, with the release of FLOWER SHOPS (THE ALBUM): Two Dozen Roses, due February 10. Building upon the project, ERNEST adds 13 more original songs to the collection, full of heartbreaking truths.
“I can’t wait for everyone to hear the new music,” shares ERNEST. “It’s even more of the real, honest storytelling that the album was built on, and continues the character’s love story right where it left off with ‘Some Other Bar.’ It’s very reflective, I think everyone will be able to relate to a part of the story in some way. I’m really proud of it!”
The lyrical innovator gives a taste of what’s to come with the pained “Unhang The Moon,” reminiscent tear-jerker “Songs We Used To Sing,” and the poetic, pleading “Miss That Girl” and its accompanying official video. Directed by Justin Clough with a treatment conceptualized by his wife, acclaimed creative Delaney Royer, the video shot in Columbia, Tenn., gives life to the track that yearns for relief from heartbreak.
“These first three are some of my favorites,” ERNEST continues. “This is just a taste of what’s coming, and hopefully hearing them makes everyone even more excited for what we have cookin’.”
