Despite amusing evidence to the contrary, American singer-songwriter ERNEST has revealed that he is not running for Mayor. The campaign he shared on social media earlier this week was, in fact, promoting his newly announced upcoming album, Nashville, Tennessee.

In his mayoral address, ERNEST told viewers in an impassioned statement, “Country music’s deep and vast repertoire is expanding and becoming more beautiful every day. But those at the top don’t want you to hear it. So, this April, I’m asking for your support as we fight to legalize country music. Together, we can all win.”

Giving fans less than a month to prepare for what could be his magnum opus, ERNEST will release his new album on Friday, 12 April. Nashville, Tennessee, follows his 2021 debut country album, FLOWER SHOPS (THE ALBUM).

ERNEST’s new album will contain 26 tracks, with guest stars including Morgan Wallen (on Hangin’ On), Jelly Roll (I Went To College, I Went To Jail), Lainey Wilson (Would If I Could), HARDY (Creep), Lukas Nelson (Why Dallas), and his two-year-old son, Ryman (Twinkle Twinkle).

In addition to announcing his new album, ERNEST has shared five (!) new tracks, including the collaborations with Jelly Roll and Nelson, and three other songs, all of which you can listen to below.
