Fresh off of his promise to "Legalize Country Music," ERNEST has shared the finer details of his upcoming album, Nashville, Tennessee.

The 26-track project, releasing on April 12, is set to pay homage to the genre and city the 'Flower Shops' star loves so well. The album will be packed with collaborations from today's country frontrunners, like Morgan Wallen, Lainey Wilson, HARDY and more.

ERNEST has shared a sample of the star-studded effort, releasing the record's first five songs the night of its announcement. The Jelly Roll-assisted 'I Went To College / I Went To Jail,' 'Ain't As Easy,' 'How'd We Get Here,' 'Ain't Too Late,' and 'Why Dallas,' which features Lukas Nelson, have all joined the artist's previously released 'Kiss Of Death' and his cover of John Mayer's 'Slow Dancing In A Burning Room.'
