(Radio.com) Lindsay Ell has much to celebrate this summer. Not only is she on one of the biggest country tours with headliner Brad Paisley but the guitarist and songwriter just released her debut album The Project.

Helmed by producer Kristian Bush of Sugarland fame, the country singer told Keleigh Nealon in an interview for Radio.com that the album was exactly the type of record she wanted to make since she was a little girl. She credits Bush with helping her find her identity as a musician and songwriter for her first major release saying, "I'm so proud of the music we made."

As to why the title was simply kept The Project, Ell said, "It felt like it's been a big science project." The album's first single "Waiting on You" was actually a starting point in the studio for the release. Ell says, "It's been an amazing process to write The Project from beginning to end and 'Waiting on You' was really the song'the first time that Kristian heard it he said, 'This is where we start.'"

Now that she's made her first record in Music City, she's so proud to be a part of the community of woman creating music in Nashville. "There's so many talented female artist and musicians in Nashville right now. I'm so happy that I can help spotlight some of them on my record by cutting some songs from them as well as being a female musician," she said. "It always surprises me why there aren't more females playing instruments, especially leading bands playing instruments. Even if you look across the format there's not a lot of women playing lead instruments. And so I'm happy I can help lead that movement and be like, 'You know what, girls can play guitar too,' or play whatever instrument you want to play." Read more here.
