Lindsay Ell has done it all in her country music career. She’s toured with Brad Paisley, performed alongside Carrie Underwood and had an album debut at #1. Ell’s new single “Criminal” is one of the hottest songs in country music right now and the 29-year-old will be at this weekend’s ACM Awards.

Ell recently stopped by the CBS Local Studios in New York to discuss her unique music style, touring with Brad Paisley and how she went from Canada to the top of the country music charts.

Watch the 53rd Annual ACM Awards Sunday, April 15th at 8pm EST/PST on CBS.
