On The Verge Artist Ernest Drops Music Video For "Feet Wanna Run"

One of Big Loud’s biggest songwriters, Ernest Keith Smith (known professionally as ERNEST) has penned number-one hits for artists such as Florida Georgia Line, Chris Lane, Morgan Wallen, Sam Hunt, and Kane Brown but now is working on his career as a singer and performer. Since signing with Big Loud in 2019, ERNEST has released a nine-track album called Locals Only and a few singles including “American Rust,” but has predominantly focused his craft on songwriting. Following the success of his collaboration with Wallen, “Flower Shops,” which skyrocketed to #1 on iTunes, Apple Music Country, and Spotify Country upon its release and currently sits in the top-25 on country radio, he decided to turn it into a full album.

Impressively, ERNEST also scored a multi-platinum hit with Diplo and Wallen’s “Heartless” as well as notable cuts such as Lane’s current single “Fill Them Boots,” Kane Brown’s “One Mississippi,” FGL’s “Blessings,” and 11 tracks on Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album.

“It’s a very good feeling to have this body of work ready to share with the world,” he said in a recent press release. “It feels like there’s a shift happening in country music and the people want to hear more honesty in songs, and with honesty comes pain – sometimes we need to feel that too. I hope this project provides a little sepia tone world for the listener to escape to and go on a journey of their own…feeling everything from love to lost," he shared in a recent interview!

“Feet Wanna Run” portrays the life of a touring artist—constantly conflicted between staying home with the ones you love or hitting the road and chasing your dream.

The idillic new video captures that pull between dreams and leaving home.
