Ernie Rowell was born in Auburn, Alabama and grew up in nearby Loachapoka. So, it was only natural that he attend Auburn University when he graduated high school. And that he did, but upon gaining his college degree he beat a quick path to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue his life-long dream of being a part of the music business.

He had played and sung with local bands, but there was nothing like the lure of the Grand Ole Opry and working with superstars like George Jones, Ray Price, and Mel Tillis. Ernie spent a total of eleven years with these three, performing for audiences in all the United States, the provinces of Canada, and several other countries.

Ernie has enjoyed some secular chart success on his own, and as a songwriter has been recorded by George Jones, Kenny Rogers, Mel Tillis, Ricky Van Shelton, Johnny Paycheck and Gene Watson, among others.

However, all this was just a prelude to his "new beginning" with Christian Country. He first began by writing Christian songs with country arrangements, drawing from his early up-bringing in the Methodist Church in Loachapoka. Later, he decided to record some of them, and the Lord has blessed his work with eight straight singles reaching the top of the Christian Country Charts (CCRB)!

Ernie's first CD/Cassette release, In His Will, is loaded with other super songs he and his co-writers put together. Especially interesting are the titles "Safe At Home ," and "Cross examination." "Family Man" is a great song encouraging men to keep a strong relationship with their family and the Lord. "Here I am" is powerful in helping people take that first step to a walk with our Lord. This project is sure to place Ernie as a mainstay in the center of the Christian Country movement.  Order your copy of In His Will today!

Ernie\'s newest CD/Cassette release, Favorites, is a 12-song collection of some his and surely your all-time favorite hymns and spirituals.  Included are "Just a Closer Walk", "Peace In The Valley", "In The Garden", "Wings Of A Dove", "Precious Memories", "Swing Low Sweet Chariot", and "How Great Thou Art" alongside one original Ernie wrote in tribute to the Andy Griffith Show, "I Want To Be Like Andy".  This project is a must add to your collection.

Ernie is currently touring the country, working churches and other organizations needing inspirational entertainment. !
