PRESENTED BY CROW
Nothing about Nashville's Ernest K. is easy to classify, and that's the point. Growing up making beats while most kids made paper airplanes and learning banjo while listening to rap, he's always bent the rules and eschewed the predictable. Ernest K. is set to change the way we look at the sounds and songs that emerge from Music City – and maybe just rattle the industry to the bone.
Adopted at three weeks old and victim to a freak heart attack at 19, surmounting ridiculous odds has always been a gift of Ernest K.’s. He learned banjo and guitar before he was a teen and quickly found his passion for hip hop and RnB after discovering the Space Jam soundtrack in the 3rd grade.
Soon, he was getting cuts from the likes of Florida Georgia Line ("Dig Your Roots"), under the tutelage of Nashville songwriting royalty like the Warren Brothers.
Ernest K. will be unlike anything currently afloat in Nashville. "It would be unfair to say I am a pop artist or a hip-hop artist," he says. "I don't have a genre. I have a lot of genres. Sorry if that's bold."
Ernest K signed with Big Loud Management where he continued writing and recording. Songs such as Bad Boy and Insomnia grabbed fans attention like nothing we’ve ever seen before and this was just the start for Ernest K. He kicked off 2018 with his first annual SNO’D IN show. Nothing short of unpredictable Ernest K continued to release more unbelievable hits, Trouble With Us and Cuss Fight. Spending endless amount of time in writing rooms and recording studios Ernest K is about to show us what it’s like not to have a genre. Not shy about his love for Nashville, the city he grew up in, Ernest K just released his latest single “I Love My City.”
