He just announced deluxe version of his debut album, Flower Shops, cleverly titled FLOWER SHOPS (THE ALBUM): Two Dozen Roses. The tracklist will feature 24 songs in total, and Ernest is a co-writer on each one.
You might recognize his name from co-write’s on songs like Morgan Wallen’s #1 hit “Wasted On You,” and “Dangerous,” from his incredibly successful Dangerous: The Double Album, but Ernest is starting to make a name for himself as a solo artist now, too.
Flower Shops featured the old fashioned country heartbreaker of a title track, a duet with his friend and frequent collaborator, the aforementioned Morgan Wallen, and Ernest says these new songs will be a continuation of the sound, content and storytelling of the original tracklist:
“I can’t wait for everyone to hear the new music. 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!”
He shared the news in a post on Instagram, saying in part:
“What is up, y’all know I just put out three songs and also announced, ‘Flower Shops,’ we’re gonna call it part two, ‘Two Dozen Roses’ the album comes out February 10th.
I’m stoked, these are some of my favorite songs we ever wrote and I’m super proud of this project. I didn’t hold any songs back from the ‘Flower Shops’ album, all the songs, all 13 new songs have been written in the last year and just a continuation of the same story, same vibe.
There’s gonna be a couple songs on there with a little bit of a wink, couple love songs, and some sad songs. So y’all stay tuned.”
