Big Loud Records has signed singer-songwriter Ernest to its roster.

The Nashville native has had songs recorded by Jake Owen, Chris Lane and Florida Georgia Line, who chose “Dig Your Roots” as the title track of their 2016 project.

Ernest will also be managed by Big Loud, with Ryan Kroon overseeing day-to-day management. Ernest is working on his debut project, which will be produced by Joey Moi and will release the track “I Think I Love You” on Oct. 4.

“I’m super blessed to call Big Loud my team. They’re like family to me, and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else,” shares Ernest of the signing. “We share the same vision, and most importantly, they let me be ME. I’m a very eccentric person and they encourage me to really dig in to everything that makes me unique.”

“We are longtime fans of Ernest and his songwriting. Over the past few years, we’ve watched him develop his vision and channel his creative flow,” says Big Loud partner Kevin “Chief” Zaruk. “He’s truly a one-of-a-kind artist and we cannot wait to introduce the world to Ernest and his music.”

Ernest will be part of two tours this fall and winter, including Mason Ramsey’s How’s UR Girl & How’s UR Family Pt. 2, which launches Oct 2 in Athen, Georgia. He will also be on Chris Lane’s Big, Big Plans Tour, launching Nov. 7 in Morgantown, West Virginia.
