ERNEST: The Songwriters

There’s a dreamy romanticism—informed heavily by hip-hop—that permeates ERNEST’s country music. He keeps things contemporary by incorporating modern themes on a tune about digital despair like Sam Hunt’s “Breaking Up Was Easy in the 90’s,” or partnering with Diplo for the cool, skittering beats of “Heartless.” But it comes from a classic place, too—”Twang” by Mason Ramsey is drenched in its namesake.
