Lindsay Ell Talks About 'Creating A Moment' At Bonnaroo

June 26, 2019

Women of country ruled Bonnaroo 2019, and Lindsay Ell was one of them! 

Lindsay Ell joined GRiZ’s G.O.A.T. A Celebration of Music Legends SuperJam and paid tribute to Chris Cornell with a performance of “Black Hole Sun” by Soundgarden. She was sure to make it a moment by ending it with a laid out guitar solo.

"Bonnaroo was so crazy," Lindsay said. "We were playing SuperJam, so it is the really, really late night jam. Griz the DJ was hosting it and all these crazy bands - Rainbow Kitten Surprise - all these people were there, so I went up and I was playing “Black Hole Sun” and at the end of it, I was like whatever, we are just going to do it. We are just going to get into it.

"So I step out onto a monitor and I was like, we just need to make this moment, a moment. So I leaned back and that was kind of the scariest part was how do you get up while still playing guitar, because I can't use my arms. But you know, you just go slowly."

It happened...and it was AMAZING!! 

Check out the captured moment: 

Well, that was pretty epic @bonnaroo. --
