It seems This Fire is spreading, with Ernest adding a second headlining date at Nashville's iconic Ryman Auditorium this Fall.
Since the Tennessee crooner announced his This Fire tour earlier in the week, tickets to see Ernest have been flying off the virtual sales, so much so that the ‘Flower Shops’ hitmaker will now be delivering a double-header at the Ryman in November.
Both of his Ryman shows will be supported by Cody Lohden and Jake Worthington. The latter features on Ernest's recent deluxe album, Flower Shops (The Album): Two Dozen Roses, with the two Big Loud label-mates combining to produce a neo-traditional, Strait-like anthem, ‘Heartache in My 100 Proof’.
Ernest then returned the favour by appearing on Jake Worthington's newly released self-titled debut record for another classic honky-tonk track, ‘Pop Goes The Whiskey’.
Ernest's 2023 This Fire tour will take the chart-topping songsmith through Ohio, Michigan, Mississippi, South Carolina, Louisiana, Georgia across October and November, before he finishes up at the Ryman.
It's safe to say Ernest has a unique affinity with the much-loved Nashville venue, with the singer-songwriter having named his child after the historic performance space. Heartwarmingly, he announced his second show at the Ryman to coincide with his son's second birthday.
Before he embarks on his hotly anticipated This Fire run of shows, Ernest will be performing across the US and Canada as he continues his supporting role on Morgan Wallen's hugely popular 2023 One Night At A Time world tour, which is currently on a brief, unplanned hiatus due to Wallen having lost his voice.
