A native of Huntsville, Alabama, Ernie realized a lifelong dream when he became a member of the Grand Ole Opry on March 7th, 1964. In addition to his string of country hits as an artist, songs penned by Ashworth have been recorded by Little Jimmy Dickens, Carl Smith, the late Johnny Horton, Wilma Lee Cooper, and Paul Anka.

Never one to rest on his laurels, Ernie continues to write, record, and perform. It was announced on August 2nd that Ernie Ashworth currently holds the #1 spot as the most played country artist in Europe. Truly an international ambassador for the music he loves, Ernie Ashworth has certainly earned the title of “Living Legend”.

Now for Marli's perspective of Ernie Ashworth's New Album.

This wonderful new album entitled, "Ernie Ashworth, the Early Years", Collector's Edition has taken me back to a time when the world was an easier place. There was  blackberry cobbler bakin' while green beans from the garden simmered on the stove.. all the smells and sounds of comfort and home. I'm suddenly young again and entranced by this heartbreakin' balladeer, then toe tappin' to the upbeat 2-steppin' tunes. It was indeed a true gift when Ernie sent his CD and photo to me and I just couldn't keep it to myself, I had to share it with y'all. The only hard part about this is, I can't fit 30 sound clips here and I have to choose just a few from all of these wonderful songs. NOT an easy decision, I love 'em all! Ernie, thank you for sharing your music with me and the world. It is indeed a treasure to me. I'm in Hillbilly Heaven and I didn't have to die to get there.
