The inspiration behind Mabelle is footed deeply in Ennis’ love for Nashville, TN, which the Georgia native now calls home.
The title Mabelle refers to the name of the building where Ennis lived when he first moved to Music City with his three best friends. The tiny one bedroom apartment, where he and his friends slept in multiple bunk-bed setups is where Ennis found the inspiration to pen his current, fast rising sure fire hit song, “Woke Up In Nashville,” which he co-wrote, co-produced and played all instruments on the recorded version.
On Facebook he shared: "Think & Drive this song is extra special to me and I want thank all my cowriters who helped me say what I needed to say - and to the best band in the land for helping bring this song and the rest of the Mabelle EP to life! Lurv y'all goons”

A Nashville-based, Georgia-raised country-pop singer/songwriter with equal amounts of swagger and sweetness, Seth Ennis broke onto the scene in 2016 with his heartfelt debut single, "Woke Up in Nashville."
The son of a military colonel, Ennis spent his formative years honing his chops while traveling base to base with his family in locales like Georgia; Alabama; Washington, D.C.; and Japan. He began his musical development on piano at the age of five.
As the years went on he added drums and guitar to his arsenal, and by the age of 13 he was writing, playing, and singing his own material. Ennis spent his late teens and early twenties touring as a multi-instrumentalist before striking out on his own and inking a deal with Sony Music Nashville in 2015. The following year saw the release of the ballad "Woke Up in Nashville," which drew favorable comparisons to contemporaries like Hunter Hayes, Dierks Bentley, and Lee Brice.
