Grieving In Uvalde

New Song & Video from Ernie

Dedicated to the families of the children and teachers lost in the Robb Elementary School massacre May 24th, 2022

Another night, staring at the ceiling, hoping to wake from this nightmare
Or to fall asleep, and be no longer breathing,for to wake without you is more than I can bear
I’m gonna lose my mind, trying to find a reason, but at the end of the day what’s the use
My baby’s gone, and my heart’s blown to pieces, and I don’t know how to live, without you
Grieving in Uvalde, grieving in San Antone, no quiero creerlo, ya no tengo mi corazon,
For to take up arms against a child who can atone, grieving for by far the darkest days we’ve ever known
Just eighteen one day before, he walked through that gun shop door
Like he was going off to war, and not but seven days more
Grieving in Uvalde, grieving in San Antone, no quiero creerlo, ya no tengo mi corazon,
For to take up arms against a child who can atone, grieving for by far the darkest days we’ve ever known
There’s an ill wind blowin’ down the Nueces River, from the Hill country down to the Rio Grande, there’s a good guy with a gun home at his table, and twenty one souls never going home again
Grieving in Uvalde, grieving in San Antone, grieving in Oklahoma, Nashville and Ohio
Parkland, Newtown, Columbine, still grieving there I know, grieving in these troubled times most anywhere you go
No quiero creerlo, ya no tengo mi corazon

Ernie HendricksonFor Ernie Hendrickson, the process of writing and recording his new album, Roll On, has been bound up in the changes he’s gone through as an acclaimed musician who is a perceptive chronicler of life in America, as a husband and father, and as an artist who remains open to the challenges and rewards that living this ever-so-complex American life can bring. What Roll On does so superbly well is bring life-affirming humor, wisdom, and even doubt, to the stories Ernie tells throughout the record’s thirteen songs.

Ernie’s latest songs were written over a period that stretches from the release of his last album, 2013‘s One for the Dreamers, to late 2018, when he began recording Roll On with producer Brian Deck at Narwhal Music Studios in Bucktown, Chicago. Ernie Hendrickson’s journey from recording One for the Dreamers in Nashville–home of country music, Americana, and big dreams–to finishing Roll On on his home turf of Midwest, U.S.A., found him walking a path of self-affirmation and hard work that makes his new music his richest and most universal to date. In classic singer-songwriter fashion, Ernie writes about what he sees and feels, but Roll On is a record that speaks to the human condition in ways that transcend time and place.

Album Review at Indie Band Guru

Ernie Hendrickson - Roll On Indie Band Guru Review

Mike O’Cull, over at Indie Band Guru, reviewed Ernie’s new album recently. Here’s what he had to say.

“Americana singer/songwriter/guitarist Ernie Hendrickson delivers a dose of soft-spoken genius to the world with his latest album Roll On. Released on September 24th, 2019 on LoHi Records, Roll On is a set of original roots-inflected songs that aim to address some very current issues in American life, specifically the senses of alienation and commercialization that are overwhelming a great many of our citizens at this very moment. Doing this is an amazingly tricky balancing act between music born of the past and stories told about the present and most songwriters struggle to do it in a convincing way. Hendrickson, however, pulls it off like a boss and displays an innate knack for combining character, setting, and meaning.”

New Album, “Roll On”

Roll On - Ernie Hendrickson

Ernie Hendrickson’s new album, Roll On, was released in September 2019 on LoHi Records. Produced by Brian Deck in Chicago with a stellar roster of studio musicians, Roll On features thirteen new songs by the acclaimed American songwriter.

Six years after releasing his 2013 Nashville-recorded album One for the Dreamers, Americana singer-songwriter and guitarist Ernie Hendrickson returns to his Chicago home with Roll On, his most mature, observant and musically wide ranging collection.

CHICAGO–It was six years ago that Ernie Hendrickson, who was born in the Wisconsin region known as the Driftless Area and raised in Illinois, released his last album, One for the Dreamers. Hendrickson, who recorded One for the Dreamers in the fabled city of Nashville with producer Chad Cromwell and a cast of musicians that included legendary Willie Nelson harmonica wizard Mickey Raphael and harmony singer Lera Lynn, took away the myriad lessons of Music City, and the record displayed his songwriting savvy, guitar acumen and feel for the American language.
