lindsay ell drops sonny and cher inspired “wAnt me back” music video

Nashville, TN – (October 9th, 2020) – Today, chart topping musician, vocalist and songwriter Lindsay Ell has released the music video for her hit single “wAnt me back,” which premiered exclusively on CMT and is available to watch HERE. The video takes fans back in time with a dramatic storyline that showcases a glamorous Ell as she harnesses her self-confidence, inspiring fans to step into their own confidence and bringing the song’s relatable lyrics to life in a whole new way. CMT praised that “with self-confidence and a dose of Hollywood glamour, Lindsay Ell steps into the spotlight on her own terms.”
“For this music video we based the narrative on the story of Sonny and Cher, where I’m previously in a duo called “Eddie and Ell,” until I ultimately decide that I want to emerge as a solo artist. The video captures the story line in which my whole persona changes from an unconfident, held-back woman, to then realizing my own self-power and stepping into it,” Ell explained to CMT.
