Project (8/11) has earned the No. 1 position on the Nielsen Soundscan
Current Country Albums Chart this week. An incredible feat, Ell is only
the second solo female to debut at No. 1 with a debut album in 2017.
Additionally, the album solidified a Top Ten All Genres debut, landing
at No. 7 on Nielsen’s Top Current Albums.

Project is the record I’ve wanted to release since I was a little girl,
but as an artist, sometimes it takes time to figure out what you want
to say and how you want to say it. I’m so grateful to my entire team for
standing by my side throughout the whole process. Every single fan that
has come to my shows, stood in meet and greet lines, and sang songs
that they’ve learned through YouTube videos is what keeps me working so
hard. Having a No. 1 selling album is incredible and I’m overwhelmed by
the support. I’ve finally made a record that’s me, and I’m just happy
fans are loving it as much as I do,” shares Ell.

Following an explosive week of high-profile television and media appearances including a performance on NBC’s The Today Show
(8/9), as well as an outpouring of support across social media from
celebrities and the music community at large, widespread critical
acclaim continues to pour in for Lindsay Ell and The Project. USA Today lauds Ell is “a true triple threat,” and also draws comparisons to the legendary Bonnie Raitt and Shania Twain. ABC News writes the album is “ear-catching” and “commands the crowd,” while Sounds Like Nashville boldly
declares, “her growing talent as a songwriter and standout vocalist add
a whole new element to The Project, which demonstrates that Lindsay Ell
is one of the best, most diverse and talented acts poised to
break-through the Country scene.”

“I’m a firm believer good things happen to good people and today is the
epitome of that. Lindsay Ell has worked long and hard for this moment
and we are so happy for her.  She is a special person and it’s so
gratifying to see this album receiving the accolades it deserves,” said
Jon Loba, EVP, BBR Music Group.

could throw into a blender to create a musical artist, such as soulful
vocals, writing chops, ability to play the fire out of a guitar, being
gorgeous, and not to mention class and kindness, Lindsay is all of it.

Named one of The Huffington Post’s “Top Country Artists to Watch,”
Lindsay Ell is a triple threat:  accomplished musician, unique vocalist
and songwriter. The 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 touring alongside the likes of Luke
Bryan, Buddy Guy, The Band Perry and Keith Urban, as well as wowing
audiences as Carrie Underwood’s guitar player live on the “50th Annual
CMA Awards” and holding her own alongside icon Melissa Etheridge on
Skyville Live.

2016 CMT Music Award and Canadian Country Music Award nominee, Ell
exhilarated audiences from coast-to-coast as part of the 2016 CMT Next
Women of Country Tour and is featured on Brad Paisley’s 2017 WEEKEND
WARRIOR WORLD TOUR. Ell’s debut album The Project released on August 11
and debuted at No. 1 on the Nielsen Soundscan Current Country Albums
Chart. For more information visit:
