Ernest announces first-ever headlining tour

Sucker for Small Towns Tour will trek through college towns

Ernest announces his first-ever headlining tour dubbed Sucker For Small Towns Tour. Kicking off in Birmingham, AL on October 6th and continuing through mid-November, the singer/songwriter brings Flower Shops (The Album) and more selects from his catalog to the road. Country up and comers Jake Worthington, Lauren Watkins, and Noah Hicks join as support across the fall run.

Concertgoers can join Ernest’s community to receive a code for tomorrow’s (Tues, Aug 9th) pre-sale by texting (615) 235-5823. Subscribers will receive the code in the morning before the pre-sale goes live at 10 am local time. General on-sale goes wide Friday, August 12th at 8 am CT for all dates excluding Chicago, which will be on-sale August 26th. Exclusive pre-show VIP Experience Packages are available for all shows at point of purchase, including one general admission ticket, VIP early entry into the venue, a Q&A and photo with Ernest, a pre-show performance, signed merchandise, and more.

“I’m stoked to get out there and take the ERN show on the road,” Ernest shares. “Gonna be playin to rooms I think we can pack! It’s an experience we put together specifically for the fans and I think it’s going to be special for them to be able to say they were there for it!”

Ernest just clinched his sixth No. 1 as a songwriter with Morgan Wallen’s multi-week chart topper “Wasted On You.” The hitmaker is on the road now opening select dates of Wallen’s sold out Dangerous Tour and playing stand-alone sets at fairs and festivals nationwide.
