    Guess who's back! This guest has recorded more hours with ERNEST than anyone else, and now he's brought us our longest episode yet. Lock in for 2 hours: JELLY ROLL

    The boys are locked in and ready to go. They have been drinking together for 24 hours and start off the pod recapping ERNEST's epic 4th of July party, Ern gives a shoutout to Nashville's greatest rapper, and Jelly Roll reiterates his admiration for Ern and the Big Loud crew.

    Next, the two talk about coming of age as a musician, the changes taking place in country music, and ERNEST plays a new song live in-studio for the listenERNS. Then, they transition to a more serious tone, and Jelly has an emotional moment discussing the duality of man and what he learned from his late father.

    This week's guest is someone you all know and love. He's a badass singer-songwriter, he's got the best mullet in Nashville, and he's your favorite podcast host: ERNEST

    Ern is rockin' solo today for the first time in a while. It was time for him to have a moment with his ListenERNS. He starts off talking about his new facial hair, being a dad, and playing a show in Peoria last weekend. Then we take a quick scroll down Ern's IG feed and have a laugh at the hilarity of some of his recent posts. Next, Ern talks about his trip to Florida for the Kayak Games, driving the second fastest car in the world, and his new invention of the Nashville hot chicken margarita. Next, Ern answers a few fan questions and poses a question of his own to the fans. He closes out the episode with some recommendations for some new spots to try in Nashville and a story about trying some hot sauce that put him on his ass.

    HARDY III

    HARDY III

    Episode 34 comes with a little surprise for you listenERNS. You are all familiar with this guest from his appearances in previous episodes, but he made an unexpected stop by the studio and decided to crash the pod once again: HARDY

    Ern was expecting to do a solo pod until HARDY walked in and decided to hang for a while. They kick off by talking about HARDY's weird sleep habit, a failed golf trip with Michael Jordan, and their upcoming summer shows together. Next, they come up with a new band name, Ern tells a story of an intense rash-turned-yeast-infection, and HARDY teaches Ern how to take a shot without getting the "shivers." Lastly, they close out by talking about mini kegs, absinth, Kanye West's genius, and HARDY orders a bidet on the pod after ERNEST tells him how it has changed his life for the better.

    Mike.

    Mike.

    This week's guest was the first artist Ern ever toured with... Artist, entrepreneur, and podcaster: MIKE.

    Ern and Mike are quite literally rollin' from jump. Passing a blunt around the studio, they kick off the discussion by breaking down what their musical interests are at the moment, how Mike’s baseball career as a pitcher at Duke turned into a musical career, and Ernest’s experience on tour with Mike in 2019. Then Mike offers a hot take on Nashville, names his favorite spots to hang, and finds out he and Ernest are chasing different things downtown...

    Next, Mike goes into detail about why he changed his stage name and what his new music is leaning towards before he drops some entrepreneurial wisdom from his business ventures. Lastly, Mike shares a story about almost catching a felony on his 21st birthday and how that motivated him to pursue music with a whole new ambition.

    Jordan Davis

    Jordan Davis

    We are back with Episode 32! This week's guest is a 2x Platinum artist and possibly Dan Bilzerian's brother: JORDAN DAVIS

    Ern and Jordan jump in discussing their favorite artists, Jordan shooting his first animal at nine years old, and how Ernest is becoming a household name (which might be old news for some of us). Then, Jordan talks about his first few years in Nashville, and the two swap pickup lines. Next, Jordan shares how he and his college roommates were catfished by a guy they lived with for 2 years at LSU.

    Moving on, the two react to Fergie singing the national anthem, they take the Livin' La Vida Local segment for a spin around town, and Ern tells a story of a disaster avoided while out to eat. Lastly, they close out the episode with a New Orleans haunted hotel story, Ern talks about living in the Virgin Islands for a year, and Jordan's new music coming out soon!

    Jelly Roll (Pt. II)

    Jelly Roll (Pt. II)

    PART 2 with JELLY ROLL! And whoever said sequels are never as good as Part 1 was WRONG.

    After a little smoke to kick off Part 2, Ern & Jelly pick up right where they left off. They start by discussing the creation of Ernest's album, "Locals Only," how the "Tropical Cowboy" brand came to be, and Jelly explains the two things he CANNOT STAND about artists. Then they debate the best songwriters in Nashville, Jelly throws some praise at Big Loud, and he tells the legendary story of watching the Music City Miracle from his cell in juvenile hall.

    They wrap up the episode with Jelly sharing his favorite books and movies (which brings Ernest to tears), they do a classic Livin La Vida Local segment, Ern tells a story about lighting a lawn on fire, and they share a laugh about an instance where they took "do whatever you want" a little too far.

    Enjoy!
