2018 has so far been a great one for Lindsay Ell. Her debut album “The Project”, lauded “Best Country Album of 2017” by Billboard finally got a UK exclusive release back in March, she came away from this years C2C festival as a stand out performer having performed on numerous stages including the Spotlight Stage and the music video for her current single “Criminal” premiered over the weekend on Entertainment Tonight.

However that’s not all. This week “Criminal” has earned the top spot on both the Mediabase and BDS Canadian radio charts, making Lindsay the first female artist to hit No.1 on the Canadian Country airplay charts since 2008, which is a huge achievement for the Calgary native.

Speaking of this accolade, Lindsay has said “I am humbled and grateful to be the first female artist to have a #1 since 2008 on the Canadian country radio charts,” commented Ell. “Sometimes you work so hard for the things you want, they feel surreal when they happen. Thank you country radio for believing in me and making this possible. Thank you to each and every fan for never giving up on me. I will try my best to continue to make you proud.”

Additional to this “Criminal” is also moving further up the US charts after being the most added song at US radio on its impact day and is still climbing steadily up the charts – currently fast approaching the Top 20 on both MediaBase and Billboard Country Airplay, making it Lindsay’s highest charting single in the US to date.
