Lindsay Ell revealed via social media that she underwent surgery on Feb. 28 to have pre-cancerous cells removed.

“I don’t have cancer, but the doctor found pre-cancerous cells growing in my body that need to be removed,” said Lindsay via Twitter. “Sometimes we think we’re fine, but never underestimate the power of a check up. It could save your life. Going in for surgery today. Gonna get this stuff out of my body.”

Ell’s collaboration with Brantley Gilbert, “What Happens In A Small Town,” continues to climb the radio charts, and she also nabbed a New Female Artist of the Year nomination for the upcoming 2019 ACM Awards.
