The chart topping songwriting and rising artist took it upon himself to honor his wife Delaney. The mid tempo track pulls listeners in from the first note. ERNEST vividly walks fans through all the things that he hopes his son Ryman will become, despite have a little wild child in his blood.


I KNOW THAT BOY WON’T WALK ON WATER ‘CAUSE HE COMES FROM MY BLOOD

AND I PRAY ONE DAY HE’LL LOOK BACK AND NOT BE ALL I WAS

HE MIGHT NOT LIVE BY ALL RED LETTERS, SOMETHIN’ CLOSE TO THAT WILL DO

OH IF HE DON’T TAKE AFTER JESUS I HOPE HE TAKES AFTER YOU


The Music City native puts on a masterclass of what it means to be a modern country traditionalist. Blending colorful lyrics with more contemporary production allows this song to connect with country fans new and old. The familiar theme of hoping that the "apple falls a little farther from this tree" and spins it in a way that honors the woman who will teach the boy the empathy only a mom can.


"I heard someone talking to Johnny Cash in a video,” ERNEST shared in a press statement. “They said ‘Johnny I’ve known ya a long time. I got a son now, and if he don’t take after Jesus, I’d be quite alright if he took after you.’ So I immediately thought, I couldn’t agree more with Ryman and Delaney. She is the most humble, kind, empathetic, nature loving, giving, selfless, and downright wholesome human I know. The things she’ll teach Ryman in this life by her actions will transcend anything he’ll learn in a building.”


The candid and heartwarming family footage matches the music video perfectly. showcasing cherished time spent together in the studio, on the road, and at home

.


“I want to instill in him a knowing of God and the importance of gratitude and faith,” ERNEST continues. “My wild side has won too many times and I hope by my mistakes I can help him avoid some. But like the song says, if he don't take after Jesus, I hope he takes after you.”


Takes After You is a career definer for ERNEST. Proving once again that when you approach a song with grace and a lot of personal experience, it always pays off.
