Lindsay Ell had a unique prop at the 2021 CMT Music Awards: a casting.
The 32-year-old Canadian singer-songwriter appeared at the awards ceremony on Wednesday night with a silver cast on her foot, but still managed to strut the red carpet anyway.
For the special night out, she paired her cast with a matching silver cocktail dress with a cutout on the belly. The dress also had only one long sleeve, while her other shoulder was completely exposed.
Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Ell revealed how she ended up in a casting.

“I was running after my dog! she revealed. “She got off the bus, we left the bus door open and she fell downstairs. Of course, like any dog owner, [I ran] after her, but I was in socks. “
Eager to save her pup, Ell said she jumped off the top step of the bus into the parking lot and “landed badly”.
“I broke it pretty well,” she said.
The crooner said her doctors warned her the injury could take eight weeks to heal – but she wasn’t going to let that stop her from enjoying the CMT Music Awards.

“I just think that’s the point of life,” she explained. “If we’ve learned anything in the last year and a half, it’s how to take lemons and turn them into lemonade.”
The country star is becoming known for her guitar solos, which could prove difficult with a bulky cast, but she also revealed that she and her team are discussing taking her on stage to a moving throne when the time comes.
Ell helped open the awards show with Lady A, and before the performance she exclaimed how accommodating they were.

“Lady A has been so incredibly kind to embrace my whole situation,” she said. “So for my guitar solo, Hillary [Scott] comes to me, and we worked on the directing so I don’t need to go on stage. “

She said the “epic” performance “would celebrate the women of the house.”
