Ernest Releases New ‘Salvage Sessions’ Performance With “Songs We Used To Sing”


The one name wonder is back.

Ernest just released the second performance from his Salvage Sessions, this time breaking out “Songs We Used To Sing”, one of the three new singles he put out in the lead up to Flower Shops (The Album): Two Dozen Roses’ Deluxe Recordwhich is coming out February 10th.

Side note, I’m very excited for this project but that title is just too long…

This was my personal favorite of his recent releases and it’s not just because of the Willie Nelson reference in the chorus.

It’s yet another example of what made us grow to love him: Quality, honest, no frill songwriting that continues the tradition of country music through compelling stories from unique angles.

“There ain’t nothing like the sting
Of blue eyes crying in the rain
Still playin’ loud when you walked out and slammed the door
Now those songs we used to sing
Are just songs that I can’t sing anymore…”

Performing heartbreak songs from a junk yard adds to the mystique of the project as well.

So far they’ve been all heartbreakers, could the location be an allusion to being left broken and in pieces, slowly fading into the ground with no purpose?

Okay, that’s a bit dramatic, but I think there’s something there…

Either way, another stellar performance from the fast rising Nashville star and I can’t wait to hear what the rest of the project brings.
