WATCH THE MUSIC VIDEO FOR “US” FT. ERNEST HERE
ERNEST WHO IS CURRENTLY ON HIS HEADLINING THIS FIRE TOUR, RECENTLY RELEASED NEW SINGLE “KISS OF DEATH”
NASHVILLE, TENN. – 2X CMA Triple Play Award winner ERNEST today releases his collaboration with 2X GRAMMY nominated artist / producer Steve Aoki, “Us.” Featured on Aoki’s 8th studio album HiROQUEST 2: Double Helix, the music video and song are available now.
“I’m stoked to have this song coming out,” shares ERNEST. “We wrote it a couple years ago in the middle of Covid, and when we wrote it I knew that I wanted it to live in some capacity. I’m such a fan of Steve’s music, so when he reached out about putting it out together, I was ecstatic! The song brings together country and dance in a fun and playful way.”
Aoki on the collaboration: “I’ve been a huge fan of ERNEST’s songwriting for a while so when I first heard him singing on the demo of this song, I knew this was the perfect opportunity to work together. Regardless of the music genre, his lyrics and vocal delivery work perfectly. Together we were able to create a song that feels authentically dance while maintaining his country roots.”
Last month, ERNEST released his burning new single “Kiss Of Death.” Co-written by the awarded lyricist with hit makers Andy Albert and Ryan Vojtesak, and produced by Joey Moi, “Kiss Of Death” bridges traditional country soundscapes and sentiments with modern vernacular, a lane that ERNEST has made his signature as he rolls on through a record year, “headed for country music stardom” (MusicRow).
Taking the soon to be sing-along favorite straight to the stage, ERNEST brings “Kiss Of Death” and other new tracks to venues nationwide now on his headlining This Fire Tour. Rolling through November with Jake Worthington and Cody Lohden as support, ERNEST will wrap the tour with back-to-back nights at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium on Nov. 28 and 29.
Nashville’s most unpredictable hitmaker ERNEST is “The Charmer” (MusicRow), a triple threat talent and one of Music City’s on the rise artist/writers who is changing the status quo. The two-time 2023 ACM Award nominee and 2022 Variety Hitmaker fuses influences ranging from Eminem to George Jones, crafting a twist-heavy verse style that’s become his signature, proving its mettle, and earning him eight No. 1 hits to date. The eccentric free spirit and 2X CMA Triple Play Award winner dropped the deluxe edition of his critically acclaimed album FLOWER SHOPS (THE ALBUM) earlier this year, rebranding the collection FLOWER SHOPS (THE ALBUM): Two Dozen Roses, doubling its track list with 13 fresh cuts. The March 2022-released original has been praised as one of Holler and The Tennessean‘s best albums of the year, showcasing the more classically country side of his craft. Stepping into a new era, his latest offering “Kiss Of Death” gives a taste of what’s to come in his anticipated next chapter of music. Consistently putting on a show that proves “ERNEST creates a sound all his own” (Pollstar), he just wrapped his run as direct support on Morgan Wallen’s One Night At A Time World Tour and is on the road now for his fall headlining This Fire Tour.
