Lindsey Stirling’s latest YouTube video has garnered nearly 1 million views in a single day. The video features Stirling facing off in a Wild West shootout in which she doesn’t use a gun but rather her most powerful weapon: her violin.
The video premiered on Buzzfeed.com on Monday morning.
“I have always loved country fiddle music, so I wanted to try to combine country fiddle with rock ‘n’ roll and EDM (electronic dance music) and see what happens,” Stirling told Buzzfeed. “Then, as I was writing this in the studio, I immediately knew that it would a steam-punk, Western throw down: me battling against an outlaw with music.”
Stirling regularly posts videos on her YouTube channel, and it is not unusual for these videos to gain millions of views. Her most popular video has been viewed more than 100 million times.
