NASHVILLE, TENN. – Today, country music hitmaker ERNEST takes fans to Big Sur, Cali. in his official music video for “Feet Wanna Run” from his debut full-length album Flower Shops (The Album). Shot on the scenic Pacific Coast Highway, the elevated video directed by Justin Clough features ERNEST’s 1975 Coupe DeVille, shipped out specially for the occasion, driving along the coastal route’s stunning ocean waters. As he chases the sunset, caught between his heart’s desire to stay and his urge to run, the lyrics he penned alongside Chris LaCorte, Brad Warren, and Brett Warren come to life.
“The video is a vibe”ERNEST
“The video is a vibe,” ERNEST shares. “I saw the Pacific Coast Highway in my head from the second we started writing the song. When it came time for the video, I knew most folks rent old cars for videos, but I thought why not ship mine out to California and make a little trip out of it. I’m so glad I did because I’ll have those images and footage forever. The video looks like the song feels, and that’s important to me.”

Nashville’s most unpredictable hit maker ERNEST is “The Charmer” (MusicRow), a triple threat talent and one of Music City’s on the rise artist/writers that’s changing the status quo. As a chart-topping songwriter, he fuses influences ranging from Eminem to George Jones, creating a twist-heavy verse style that’s become his signature, proving its mettle, and earning him six #1 hits to date.

Morgan Wallen in January to 88 first week stations, the #1 most added single of the week, and is Top 20 and rising now. His debut full-length album of the same name – Flower Shops (The Album) – is out now, showing off the more classically country side of his craft.
