WATCH: ERNEST & Morgan Wallen Drop Acoustic Version Of “Flower Shops”

ERNEST and Morgan Wallen released the acoustic rendition of their chart-climbing duet, “Flower Shops.”

In honor of Valentine’s Day, the fast rising star and East Tennessee native shared the stripped down version of the fan-favorite tune on Monday (Feb. 14).

“Happy Valentine’s Day to allllll of you!” ERNEST wrote. “It’s the best day for flower shops so we decided to give y’all the acoustic version today!!”

The acoustic song, which truly allows the pair’s vocals, is accompanied by a music video. The black and white clip features ERNEST and Wallen singing the “Flower Shops” with their acoustic guitars, similar to how they would perform the song live during their concerts. 

Listen to the new version of the track below.

Produced by Joey Moi & co-written by ERNEST alongside Benny Burgess and Mark Holman, “Flower Shops” finds the fast rising singer and Wallen trading verses and choruses before joining together for the track’s final chorus. 

“Mister I’ll take your roses / If you cut off the thorns / She can’t take no more / I’ll buy violets and daisies / To hide all the crazy / It’s gonna take all you’ve got / Awe It’s a bad day for love / But a good day for flower shops,” ERNEST and Wallen sing during the chorus.

In addition to sharing the late last year, the singers dropped the music video for the track, which features both ERNEST and Wallen performing the song with minimal production, while leaning on a flower-covered car, truly allowing the song’s lyrics to shine vibrantly. 

The pair recently performed the tune during ERNEST Grand Ole Opry debut.

Ahead of the song’s release, Wallen shared, “I’m really excited to see what you think about this song. I’m really fired up for it and really grateful that ERNEST asked me to be on it with him. It’s kind of like the opposite of ‘Broadway Girls,’ we just went a really traditional country direction, and I’m super fired up for it. Hopefully you guys enjoy it as much as we do.”

In late July 2021, during Whiskey Jam’s massive ten-year anniversary celebration at The Ryman Auditorium, ERNEST gave the debut live performance of “Flower Shops.” The song earned immediate approval from fans, who begged for the song’s release. 

Then, on August 9, during Wallen’s surprise performance at Losers Bar and Grill’s 15th Birthday Bash, he announced that he would be joining ERNEST on “Flower Shops” and he performed the song live.

“Y’all cool if I sing you a new song that I’m going to do with my buddy Ernest?” Wallen asked the beyond capacity crowd.

“Well, y’all kind of knew this already, but I love singing sad songs,” he continued. “It doesn’t matter if I’m the happiest person in the world, I just love riding around listening to sad songs. That’s what I’m going to sing tonight. This is a new one, I don’t know if y’all heard this or not but me and Ernest are doing this together, it’s called ‘Flower Shops.’”

Ahead of Wallen’s Whiskey Jam performance, the pair shared a clip on Instagram singing the highly-anticipated track’s chorus in a dimly lit room.

“I’ll take all your roses / if you cut off the thorns / can’t take no more / how ’bout violets and daises to hide all the crazy / it’s going to take all you got / it’s a bad day for love / but a good day for flower shops,” ERNEST and Wallen sing the clip.

Wallen and ERNEST teased the new duet for quite some time and have even performed the tune during their live shows together last year. Fans already knew every single word to the song during their live performances together, further proving the fan’s connection with the traditional country song.
