Halestorm co-founder and also the frontwoman who is considered as one of the most talented female stars of the new era, Lzzy Hale, has posted a new photo on her official Instagram account today and shared her feelings after winning Grammy-Award back in 2012.
As you might remember, Lzzy Hale has earned her first-ever Grammy award in 2012 for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance for ‘Love Bites (So Do I).’ With this award, she has managed to become the first female musician to earn a Grammy in that category.
In her latest post on her verified Instagram page, Lzzy Hale has shared what she felt these days and likened the cheer roared after hearing the announcement to winning the Super Bowl. After sharing the post, over 5K people pushed the like button including her bandmate and also the co-founder of Halestorm, Joe Hottinger.
Here is what she said:
“We were In Madison WI on stage when we first heard the news that we were nominated for our first Grammy. At the time, we didn’t even think, as underground Hard Rockers, that we were even on the Recording Academy’s award. In the middle of our set, I was sitting myself down at the piano to do a solo ballad for the audience when Joe ran out to me to give me the news that we were nominated…
The look of shock on my face stirred our front row freaks into a frenzy… when I turned to the mic and announced this craziness… the cheer that roared from the crowd was what I can only liken to us winning the Super Bowl. Holy shit. What a night. We knew who we were up against, and didn’t actually believe we would win. I mean, if it hadn’t been for our fellow nominees in the category, we wouldn’t be the rockers we are today! So we went to the Grammy celebration… we walked the red carpet, we went to all the parties, hung out with Katy Perry, John Mayor, Quincy Jones, Sting etc and everyone in the cool kids club…”
“Then patiently waited to hear our name come up as they announced the winner. When David Alan Grier opened the envelope and read our name, their was a collective pause of disbelief and for the first time in my life… I was speechless. This honor for us as a band… was personal. I’ve been in Halestorm since I was 13 years old. All I’ve ever wanted to do is Rock. And this award was confirmation that yes, being in a Rock band was a crazy risk… but pursuing my happiness and dreams was not stupid. Could I have lived a normal, white picket fence life, yes.
But it would’ve never given me the hope, strength or satisfaction that my All-in..no back up plan Life of a rockstar has given me. My advice to anyone thinking about pursuing their own dream…do it. Don’t let anyone convince you that you can’t or shouldn’t. I stand here today…living proof that you are capable of greatness. Expect it of yourself. Follow your compass. We only get one trip on this ride. Make it your best one.”
