Lindsay Ell Has Finally Realized Her Childhood Dream of Having a #1 Song

BRANTLEY GILBERT and LINDSAY ELL’s “What Happens in a Small Town” has hit Number One on the “Billboard” Country Airplay chart.  And if you’re wondering why that’s a big deal, check out what Lindsay said on Instagram.

“This is a moment I’ve been waiting for since I was a little girl.  So many nights I’ve gone to sleep praying to be able to celebrate a #1 song.  To be a part of this and to work with an incredible team of hard-working people . . . I’m so grateful.”

The song is up for Musical Event of the Year tonight, so I’m sure winning that would be icing on the cake.  Even Brantley wants it to win for her sake.  Well, that’s what he says.  “It’s [my] first nomination since 2012, but it’s Lindsay’s first.

“[I’d] love to see awesome things happening for any female in our genre, but especially Lindsay.  [As] close as I’ve been with her and seeing how hard she grinds just makes it that much more special.  I’m more excited for her than I am for me.”
