So, “Flower Shops” by ERNEST and Morgan Wallen is one of my favorite new songs of the year (perhaps my #1 fave so far) so I really wanted to have a chat with ERNEST (all caps, because why not?) and talk about everything from music to parenthood to “Yellowstone”!
I’m all for REAL Country music, and when this song hit my inbox, I immediately fell in love with it! Up and Comer ERNEST has a true Country voice and style, and when you combine it with Morgan Wallen, you’ve got modern Country GOLD.
“Flower Shops” has one of my new favorite lines “Violets and Daisies to hide all the crazy”. The song is already #1 on itunes, and I’m thinking it’s just starting it’s run as a chart topper. I’m happy to kick off the new year with some real Country music… I hope this trend cotinues the rest of the year! I can’t wait to hear more from both ERNEST and Morgan in the coming months. As for Morgan, it looks like Country music has moved on from his controversy of last year, as his album “Dangerous” was the #1 album of 2021. NOT just in Country music, but across all the genres. Say what you will about him, the guy has chops.
Plus, if you want some bad Country music behavior- go look up what George Jones and Randy Travis -two legends- got into in their day. We just didn’t have the social media to blow things up.
