Ernest And Morgan Wallen Perform ‘Flower Shops’ In Nashville
It was a big week for Ernest and an even bigger week for his fans in Nashville. The country hitmaker performed two back-to-back sold-out nights at the Ryman Auditorium and enlisted a few friends to join him in on the action.
Wallen hit the stage to perform “Flower Shops,” the title track and lead single on Ernest’s sophomore album, which he’s featured on, and surprised him with a double-platinum plaque for the song. In the video shared to TikTok below, you can hear the crowd sing back word for word along with Ernest and Wallen.
Ernest previously said of the song in a press statement, “‘Flower Shops’ is a song that isn’t over-written or over-complicated,” explains ERNEST. “It’s a sad song with a wink; an honest song about messing up a good thing and running out of sorrys. I wrote it with Ben Burgess and Mark Holman after being on a George Jones/sad country song kick. I didn’t have a hard time going there because I know damn well what it’s like to run out of apologies, and though flowers aren’t ever going to fix it, it’s just about all you can do sometimes. It’s one of my favorite songs, if not my favorite song, I’ve written to date.”
The fun didn’t stop there, CMA winner of New Artist of the Year, Jelly Roll, came out to perform “Son of a Sinner,” written by Ernest. In addition, Lady A’s Charles Kelley also performed a song he co-wrote for Ernest titled “Songs We Used To Sing.”
Ernest is fresh off the release of his new single, “Kiss of Death,” and a brand new collaboration with DJ and producer, Steve Aoki, titled “Us.” He will join Wallen out on the road for his 2024 Morgan Wallen: One Night At A Time World Tour in May.
