HALESTORM Vocalist Lzzy Hale On Grammy Nomination - "A Personal Victory For The Four Of Us"
Earlier this week Pennsylvania rockers HALESTORM
were nominated for a
Grammy Award in the category Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance for their
song 'Love Bites (So Do I)'. IRON MAIDEN, ANTHRAX, MEGADETH, LAMB OF GOD
and MARILYN MANSON
were also nominated.Loudwire.com
caught up with vocalist Lzzy Hale
to discuss the nomination:Hale:
"It’s crazy, it means a lot considering the rock/metal
performance category – it’s kind of like a personal victory for the four
of us. The performance of our live shows, that’s what we love most.
It’s really neat, we’re extremely humbled by it, we had no idea. In
fact, I wasn’t even paying attention (laughs) to the nominees for the
past couple years — that doesn’t happen to bands like us! I never
expected it, but it’s really cool though — we actually found out in the
middle of a show, so I got to announce it onstage and the crowd went
crazy. I’m just so happy about it, it’s very cool. It’s just one of
those things that you never expect to happen. You think about it when
you’re a little kid: 'Oh it would be cool to get a Grammy,' and then it
happens and you’re like 'Wow, who screwed up?' (laughs)"Loudwire:
Not many females have been nominated for hard rock and
metal Grammys. Have you thought about the gender aspect and does it feel
like you’re representing women in rock?Hale:
"Definitely, I’m also really honored to be the only chick in
this category right now (laughs) — it’s really neat. I think just in the
past year there have been so many girls that come to our shows who are
basically saying, 'It gives me so much encouragement because you’re
doing this and that means I can, too.' I’m happy to be holding that flag
at the moment for all of the much more talented young girls that are
going to be coming up behind me – it’s neat to be representin'."
