Nashville, TN – (July 13, 2020) – Lindsay Ell was #1 most-added today at Country radio with her glowing new single “wAnt me back.” Released on Stoney Creek Records, Ell co-wrote this single with award-winning Country star Kane Brown along with acclaimed writers Matt McGinn and Lindsay Rimes.
Being Kane Brown’s first outside cut as a writer adds an extra special layer to this anthem of liberation for Ell. “I think Lindsay is an awesome artist,” says Brown. “I was excited and grateful to be part of the song and I’m so glad she’s my first outside cut as a writer.”
“I’m so happy by the reaction from fans and Country radio for the release of ‘wAnt me back,’” says Ell. “I feel like anyone can relate to this song by thinking back to after that one relationship in high school or college when you felt like you gained a whole newfound confidence. I can’t thank Kane, Matt and Lindsay enough for co-writing it with me, and am honored to be Kane’s first outside cut.”
Available everywhere digitally now, “wAnt me back” is from her highly anticipated sophomore albumheart theory out August 14. “I love watching people step into their own power,” says Ell. “It is one of the most inspiring moments to watch someone finally see their full potential.” Preaching confidently on reclaiming power lost, the song explains a tale as old as time of the lack of appreciation of someone until they’re gone.

“The right song at the right time.” – Taste of Country

The first partner organization receiving funds from Make You Movement will be The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN), which is the United States’ largest anti-sexual violence organization.
