This week has been a HUGE one for our girl Lindsay Ell

The country songstress unveiled the music video for her current single “Criminal” on Saturday (April 7) to learn only two days later that the song has earned the top spot at both Mediabase and BDS Canadian country radio.

“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.”
