Lindsay Ell’s new video is the perfect metaphor for a girl in love

Let’s face it ladies, she’s hit the nail on the head with this one. 

Highlighted as a standout performer at this year’s Country to Country festival following the UK and Ireland release of her debut album The Project, country star Lindsay Ell has revealed the cinematic music video for her radio hit Criminal.

In the video, Ell is arrested for stealing a car (presumably to get to the one she loves) and then plans her escape from prison, because nothing will keep a woman in love from the man of her dreams – figuratively, most of the time. Have a look for yourself below:

“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.”
