Lindsay Ell, Canadian born singer-songwriter wears her heart on her sleeve for her newly released single, “I Don’t Love You”. The release of this ballad accompanies an exciting first for the artist: a #1 American country radio single for her duet with Brantley Gilbert, “What Happens in a Small Town”. Earlier this year, Ell joined forces with country music veteran Brantley Gilbert to release this jam that has climbed the charts over the past few months.
We’re super excited for the up-and-coming singer and can’t wait for the momentum to keep going with “I Don’t Love You”. Prior to the official release, Ell teased the song during various live sets. After much anticipation, the studio version holds just as much emotion and exceeds fan expectations. The beautiful song shares the singer’s personal experience of going through a breakup, using a haunting amount of detail.
“I don’t open up a bottle with my dinner / ‘Cause I know that it’s just gonna sit out on the counter / And go bad just like the leftovers / You said to leave at the restaurant / I don’t go to anymore ‘cause I won’t go alone”
Ell opens up the song reflecting on her new reality of loneliness, while cleverly embedding memories from her lost relationship into the lyrics. The calming melody and soft guitar twangs throughout the verse bring the listener into a feeling of nostalgia and help build up to the powerful chorus. The Canada native belts into a heartbreaking and dramatic chorus, passionately singing the simple words: “I don’t love you baby / I don’t love you / No, I don’t love you anymore” Ell’s vocals shine not only during the memorable chorus but throughout the song where she brings listeners on an emotional journey from start to finish.
We’re all very excited to hear what’s next in this new chapter of music. For now, we can catch the rising star take the stage at the 53rd Annual CMA Awards on November 13th.
