INTRODUCES HIS NEXT CHAPTER OF MUSIC WITH BURNING COUNTRY SINGLE – LISTEN HERE
ON THE ROAD NOW HEADLINING HIS THIS FIRE TOUR
NASHVILLE, TENN. – Giving a taste of what’s next today, verging artist-writer ERNEST steps into a new chapter with “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).
“I’m digging deeper into some of the stuff I was cutting my teeth on as a real young kid with a banjo and a dream,” ERNEST shares. “The folk / bluegrass influences that I absorbed from such a young age…. I’ve been playing ‘Kiss Of Death’ and some other new ones on the road already, and seeing our crowd’s reactions to the new music is priceless.”
Chock full of fiery passion, the lyrics of the irresistible toe-tapper dive heart first into a relationship on danger’s edge, pleading:
Cuz I feel like dancing with the devil
Take my heart and rip it out my chest
When I’m with you I’m good as gone girl
My angel in a fire red dress
My kiss of death
Kiss me, kill me
Listen to “Kiss Of Death” HERE.
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 Lohen as support, ERNEST wraps a year packed with live performances milestones with his final 2023 stop of Morgan Wallen’s One Night At A Time World Tour on Nov. 11 at Atlanta’s Truist Park, alongside additional dates at the National Peanut Festival, Tailgate N’ Tallboys, and Opry NextStage Live.
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 delivers dynamic performances while on the road now as direct support on Morgan Wallen’s One Night At A Time World Tour and his fall headlining This Fire Tour.
