NASHVILLE, TN — (23rd November, 2021) — BBR Music Group label-mates Chayce Beckham, the latest winner of ABC’s American Idol, and Lindsay Ell, award-winning triple threat (musician, vocalist, songwriter) are teaming up for irresistibly steamy new single, “Can’t Do Without Me,” dropping Monday, November 29th. Pre-save/pre-add HERE.
Soaring with powerhouse vocals and a heart-pounding, high-energy beat, “Can’t Do Without Me” – produced by Ross Copperman – describes a couple’s long-awaited reunion. Beckham’s rough, gravelly voice and Ell’s bluesy, soulful flair, the pair perfectly complement each other’s distinctive vocals.
“Working with Lindsay on this song was a blast,” said Beckham. “Being in the studio with such a talented artist really took this song to another level for me.”
After releasing his self-penned track “23” (and winning American Idol) earlier this year, the pensive song shot to the top of multiple viral charts, racking up more than 22 million on-demand streams (and counting).
“There is such a raw intensity in this song that when A&R brought it to me, I knew I had to cut it—it hit me like lightning,” said Ell. “Chayce, wow, did he bring it on this song. I had heard so many great things about him but he more than understood the assignment on this one.”
The song drops the same night Ell is set to co-host the 2021 Canadian Country Music Awards, where she is the most nominated female artist (with five nominations). Ell, with a No. 1 already under her belt, is currently serving as host to Canada’s Got Talent as she recently kicked off her first headlining tour in Canada, since recently wrapping Blake Shelton’s 2021Heroes & Friends Tour.
Penned by Jordan Walker, Trannie Anderson and Michael Carter, “Can’t Do Without Me” will mark Beckham’s label-debut single.
The supercharged duet hits DSPs on Monday, November 29th. For more information on Lindsay Ell and Chayce Beckham, visit their websites at www.lindsayell.com and chaycebeckham.com.
ABOUT CHAYCE BECKHAM:
Chayce Beckham is one of the most buzzed about newcomers in country music today, having won over millions of hearts while competing on Season 19 of ABC’s American Idol. From the first audition, superstar Katy Perry highlighted how Chayce’s gravely vocals sound like “the heart of America.” Armed with a determination to make something of himself and the unwavering support of his family, Chayce auditioned for the competition show after undergoing a particularly difficult year to ultimately become the first-ever show winner to claim the title with an original song—kickstarting his journey to fulfilling his lifelong dream of becoming a singer, songwriter and entertainer.
Following his first time onstage after performing in his fifth-grade talent show, the southern Californian began teaching himself guitar—eventually finding his way into a Reggae band (while earning his wages at a construction equipment rental company). Influenced by artists such as Chris Stapleton, Tyler Childers, and Kolton Moore & The Clever Few, and knowing that country music was where his heart called home, Chayce turned to Instagram as a creative outlet for his more intimate songs, sharing his original material.
With his family, his hometown of Apple Valley and now America behind him, the mellow 25 year-old with an alluring rasp recently released his debut song, “23.” The song is a semi-autobiographical account of his struggles with alcohol and of the lows it can take on a person. The song quickly shot to the top of both the iTunes Country and All Genre charts and numerous viral charts, racking up more than 22 million on-demand streams (and counting). Now signed to 19 Recordings in partnership with BBR Music Group/Wheelhouse Records and finding his home in Nashville, Chayce is ready to dig into new music and share his signature sound with his legions of fans.

The Calgary native learned to play guitar while traveling with her father to country-bluegrass camps as a young girl.

These wins and nominations are well earned after Ell exhilarated audiences as part of Keith Urban’s Graffiti U World Tour, Brantley Gilbert’s Not Like Us Tour, and Brad Paisley’s Weekend Warrior World Tour. Ell’s first full-length album The Project debuted at No. 1 on the Country Album Sales Chart and was named Billboard’s “Best Country Album of 2017. “What Happens In a Small Town,” Lindsay’s duet with Brantley Gilbert, claimed the top spot at country radio, marking her first No. 1 in the US.
