Ernest Announces He’s Taking A Month-Long Break From Music


Country star Ernest shared that he is taking a one-month sabbatical from music to focus on his family. The singer made the announcement on Instagram, along with a photo of him holding his son in his arms. “Getting out and playing for you guys every night has been a dream. But running non-stop I’m not gonna lie, it’s taken its toll on me, “ Ernest wrote. “I’m going to be taking about a month off to reset and spend some time at home with my family. My son, Ryman is now at the age where every time I get home, he asks me if Im leaving… and I just can’t stand hearing him ask for daddy thru a phone call any more. I’m lucky to have a lot of incredible things coming up, and because of that I want to show up as my best self for my family and for you guys. We will be back on the road soon, and I can’t thank you all enough for the support.” (Taste of Country)
