Lindsay Ell & Poet Adam Roa Are Dating!

Lindsay Ell has a new boyfriend!

The 31-year-old country star confirmed she’s in a relationship with 35-year-old L.A.-based poet and artist Adam Roa in a post on her Instagram on Thursday (October 22).

“Every moment spent with you makes me smile,” she captioned a sweet photo of Adam giving her a kiss in a warm embrace.

The two have been spending time together over the last several months, with both making trips between Los Angeles and Nashville, according to People.

Lindsay tagged Adam in a post in September, and the new couple led a songwriting workshop together called Write From the Heart earlier in October.

“Writing is a gift that I’m so grateful for… The ability to turn your emotions into art is so powerful. It lets you process what’s going on in your life and heal from it. TOMORROW I’m hosting my first ever songwriting workshop with @adam.roa,” she wrote.

All of these couples just tied the knot in 2020!

Lindsay Ell Opens Up About Being Raped Twice As She Drops New Single Dedicated To Survivors

Lindsay Ell is opening up about being a survivor of not just one, but two rapes.

The 31-year-old country singer talked to People about her experiences as she drops a special new song dedicated to rape survivors.

“I was raped when I was 13, and it happened again when I was 21,” Lindsay says. “The song only talks about the first time. It’s just a difficult thing to talk about, and it’s something that I process every day still.”

She continues that “part of me talking about it now is liberating the little 13-year-old Lindsay and the 21-year-old Lindsay. Pain is something we can let control us if we don’t deal with it, but the minute you put a voice to your story the shame has no power.”

Lindsay says that when she was 13, she was groomed by a man in her church whom her family knew and he eventually raped her.

“I felt like I had really messed up, that everybody was going to judge me and that the rest of my life was ruined,” she revealed and added that she was 20 when she finally told her parents about it.

“They had no idea it happened, and they were absolutely horrified,” she says. “I’m so grateful towards both of them because they helped me not go into any unhealthy mechanisms to cope.”

Then, when she was 21, she was raped again, only saying that the second time was “different” and “a lot more violent.”

Lindsay has just released “make you”, as a tribute to survivors.

“I wanted to release it on Global Forgiveness Day. Forgiving people in our past is a huge thing for whatever reason, but forgiving yourself is so important,” Lindsay shared. “There’s an incredible amount of healing that can happen, and it can’t happen until you can truly open up that forgiveness for your own heart.”

Listen to the song below.

This other singer also opened up about her rape.

Get to Know Country Singer Lindsay Ell with These 10 Fun Facts (Exclusive)

Lindsay Ell is a rising star in the country music world and we caught up with her to learn some things that fans might not know about her yet!

The 29-year-old singer just released The Continuum Project, which is a re-imagining of John Mayer‘s album Continuum.

As an exercise to help her write and record her debut album, her producer Kristan Bush gave her two weeks to record Mayer’s Continuum, playing every instrument on the album. After Lindsay spoke about the project, fans begged her to release the recordings and she finally did last week. Download the album now on iTunes!

Here are 10 Fun Facts about Lindsay:

  • 1. I’m originally from Calgary, Canada. I’ve been living in Nashville for 8 years now. It’s home. If I could have another home somewhere part-time, it would either be Austin or LA.
  • 2. I love dogs. Am SUCH a dog person. Have grown up with them all my life. I travel way too much right now, and live alone, so I can’t have one myself. But I live vicariously as a dog owner through all of my friends’ amazing dogs. My girl Cassadee Pope’s dog, Cuppy, is my boyfriend. :)
  • 3. I was valedictorian of my high school, and graduated a year early.
  • 4. I took 7 years of French in school growing up (grade 4-11), and still can only say words like dog, pumpkin, Christmas, and “my name is….” I’m an expert on the holidays. I can understand it a lot better than I can speak it though!
  • 5. I love working out. Yoga, running, and am really into kickboxing right now.
