Stoney Creek Records star Lindsay Ell is already turning heads with the release of her scorching, guitar-driven new single “Shut Me Up,” which debuted today as the #2 Most Added Country Song in the U.S. with 31 first week stations.
The song has been hand-picked by Townsquare Media editors for its multi-genre “Hot Releases” campaign, sponsored by McDonalds. The “Hot Releases” playlist will be featured across syndicated tastemaker sites including Taste of Country, Popcrush, Loudwire, Just Jared, The Boot, Consequence of Sound and more beginning this Friday, August 15th.
Additionally, “Shut Me Up” will be featured prominently on-air all week as part of SiriusXM The Highway’s “Fresh Female Voices” campaign.
Today, Taste of Country exclusively premieres the lyric video for “Shut Me Up,” which is unique to the video genre. Alongside the song’s lyrics – some written in Ell’s own cursive – the lyric video features brazen silhouettes of the Stoney Creek Records star as she performs “Shut Me Up.”
Written by GRAMMY award winners Zach Crowell, Brett James and Hillary Lindsey, “Shut Me Up” allows Ell to show off not only her lead guitar prowess but also her vocals and performance skills. All three have earned the rising star critical praise from the likes of Rolling Stone, Guitar World, Billboard and more. Just last week, Ell was heralded by Teen Vogue as “your coolest new girl crush” in an article spotlighting ten of the summer’s hottest new country acts. Read it here: http://www.smarturl.it/dt19qj

ABOUT LINDSAY ELL:
Lindsay Ell is a triple threat: accomplished musician, unique vocalist and songwriter. The 25-year-old Calgary native learned to play guitar while traveling with her father to country-bluegrass camps as a young girl. Ell honed her craft as a musical stylist and songwriter after being discovered by BTO and The Guess Who’s Randy Bachman (“American Woman” / “Taking Care of Business”) who discovered her at the age of 13. The multi-instrumentalist was soon opening for the likes of Buddy Guy and Keith Urban. Most recently, Ell travelled the globe as the opening act for The Band Perry’s “We Are Pioneers” World Tour (50 dates across 12 countries) while her debut single “Trippin’ On Us” earned critical acclaim. Ell has been called “a true triple threat” by Guitar World; “a star in the making” by Taste of Country, “a distinct figure in the modern country recording camp” by Country Weekly and was named one of Rolling Stone Country’s “10 Artists You Need To Know” in Summer 2014. Ell is currently in the studio recording her debut album. http://www.LindsayEll.com
