It has been a special time for Ell.

Ell will join Shania TwainQueen of Me World Tour that launches April 28 in Spokane, 워싱턴.

I remember watching videos of Shania on stage and being like, I want to do that, I want to be her,” she told PEOPLE on the CMA Awards red carpet 11 월. “And now to be able to be direct support with her on tour, it’s wild. It’s so surreal speaking that sentence into existence.

“그들은 말한다, ‘Never meet your heroes,’ and I would say that Shania is definitely the exception to that rule,” 그녀는 덧붙였다, explaining how honored she feels. “She’s so down to earth and so smart. It’s really difficult, as a female artist, to stand up for the things that you believe in, and also do it with class — while being sexy. She just does it so effortlessly. She’s the queen. I can’t think of another female artist that’s inspired me more as a songwriter, as a performer.
