The music video for Lindsay Ell’s flirty, lemons-to-lemonade break-up anthem “By The Way” premieres exclusively across CMT platforms today.
Directed by Desmond Desmarais, the Stoney Creek Records guitar chanteuse shot the video while on tour, making use of beautiful, sunny landscapes that serve as the perfect juxtaposition to the saucy swan song.
The light-hearted, up-tempo number indeed puts an unconventional spin on the typical break-up song. Cleverly referring to ex-flames as “Mr. Cowboy Boots” and “Mr. Baseball Cap” Ell reminds them just how quickly her heart can rebound, even crediting them for helping her meet Mr. Right (i.e. “Mr. Pick-Up Truck”).
Ell’s new single “By the Way” has charged out of the gate in a huge way. The song debuted as the #1 Most Added Song at U.S. Country Radio and shot into the Top 10 at iTunes Country upon its release. Buy it here: http://geni.us/bytheway
Last month, CMT’s Next Women of Country presented Ell’s 24-hour “Busking on Broadway” event which raised thousands of dollars in tips for the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt. Ell braved torrents of rain and cold temperatures throughout the event brought to Middle Tennessee by Hurricane Joaquin. With her gear wrapped in plastic, her set list destroyed by rain and her feet engulfed in puddles, Ell performed for 24-hours straight on Nashville’s famed Lower Broadway.
