Lindsay Ell made headlines earlier this week after opening up about a song she wrote following her much-publicized breakup with multi-media personality and American Idol mentor Bobby Bones. And on Wednesday (Oct. 16), Ell answered a phone call from The Bobby Bones Show and shared more details about the buzzed-about song with Bones, his co-hosts and their listeners.
“The only reason I am nervous is that you’ve been talking about how you’re nervous about some of these songs that I am writing,” Ell told Bones when he asked why she was reluctant to release the song, insisting, “I would never write a song that’s bad or that’s mean. That’s not who I am.”
The song, which Ell reluctantly shared is titled “Get Over You,” was written on a day when Ell “wasn’t particularly happy” about something Bones said on air. She says went into a songwriting session and ended up pouring her feelings out. It’s something Ell says she’s done quite a bit since their split.
“We’ve been broken up for two years, Bobby,” she told him, adding, “That’s crazy….I’ve gone through all phases of a breakup and over the past two years, I’ve written about every single phase because that’s what we do as a songwriter.”
Bones knew there was a possibility Ell would eventually write about their relationship and the ultimate demise of it. He asked her to tell listeners what he told her about sharing those details.
“In all honesty, you said, ‘you’re an artist, you can write what you want to write. Put whatever you want on your album, but remember, I have a microphone too,'” she revealed.
As for “Get Over You,” fans may never have a chance to hear it as Ell says she doesn’t know if it will end up on her album or not. She does, however, have a new single on the way. Details about that song have yet to be released.
In the meantime, the talented songstress is currently in the studio working on the much-anticipated follow-up to 2017’s The Project. She also has a current Top 5 song at country radio with “What Happens In a Small Town,” a duet with Brantley Gilbert.
