With her latest single having the moniker “Criminal,” it’s no wonder that Lindsay Ell would find herself behind bars in the new video for her latest offering.
The new video, filmed at the Tennessee State Prison, kicks off with a silhouetted image of Lindsay kissing a man, whom we assume is her boyfriend. In the next scene, a prison warden yells at a Lindsay and fellow inmates while chained in the prison yard. It unfolds from there, showing the crimes Lindsay has committed in the name of love.
“Boy, what you do to me is criminal. Baby when I look in those eyes. I feel like going through stop lights, looking at the cops like, I got nothing to lose. Yeah boy, you got me burning like a match stick. Take me to the edge and one step past it. It ain’t right, it ain’t typical. Oh, what you do to me is criminal,” she sings in the chorus.
“Criminal” is sure to take the Canadian singer to the next level in her more than decade long career. Forging her own path since 2006, Lindsay has made the break that separates her from a crowded field of newcomers vying for the spotlight
In addition, Lindsay received the news that her current single hit the top of the Canadian country music charts. This feat marks the first time a female solo artist has topped the Canadian country charts since 2008.
“I am humbled and grateful to be the first female artist to have a #1 since 2008 on the Canadian Country radio charts. Sometimes you work so hard for the things you want, they feel surreal when they happen,” remarked Lindsay. “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.”
Lindsay will heat up the summer month’s on the road as part of Sugarland’s Still The Same Tour. She will also join Keith Urban on select dates of his Graffiti U World Tour this Fall. In the meantime, the “By The Way” singer is wrapping up a stint on Brad Paisley’s Weekend Warrior Tour through April.
