* required – Lindsay Shares Her Family’s Funny Celebrity Encounter With Randy Bachman


Lindsay Ell may be fairly new to the solo county music scene, but she’s been a well-respected guitarist for some time, a talent that was recognized by Randy Bachman of the Guess Who and Bachman Turner Overdrive when she was just a teenager.

“Randy had been song writing with a friend of mine way, way back when I was about 13, and this friend of mine was like, ‘Randy needs to meet you,’” Ell tells The Boot. “So we gave Randy this demo CD I did of cover songs and acoustic guitar things, and Randy said, ‘This sounds like a young Chet Atkins.’ Because he heard a lot of my guitar playing. But then he found out I was a girl, and he said, ‘I need to meet her.’”

After hearing her demo, Bachman joined Ell for a writing session at her house, an experience she remembers fondly.
