Lzzy Hale on 2012 Rock Goddess of the Year Competition: ‘We’re All Voting for Each Other’

Mary Ouellette,

With the release of their very successful second studio album ‘The Strange Case Of…,’ Halestorm have had one hell of a year, including a recent Grammy nomination, nonstop touring and plans for a new covers EP. Not to mention, the band received multiple nominations in our very own 2012 Loudwire Music Awards.

We spoke to Halestorm frontwoman Lzzy Hale shortly after the band’s Grammy nomination, and she was kind enough to share some thoughts on being one of the contenders for the Rock Goddess of the Year and other topics related to the 2012 Loudwire Music Awards.

“It’s so neat, thank you so much for including us in that,” Hale told us. “It’s funny, we were talking about this and it’s like, we’re the new kids on the block, so it’s neat that all of a sudden we’re part of this rock club. It’s just cool to watch and it’s a lot of fun for the fans, too, because they feel like they’re a part of something — so it’s really great that you’re doing that.”

In the Rock Goddess of the Year category, Hale joins her pals Amy Lee of Evanescence, Maria Brink of In This Moment and other female artists who have been prominent this year in music.

“It’s funny because just in the past couple years we’ve become really good friends with a lot of the people who are included, so all of us, between myself and Amy and Maria, we’re all voting for each other,” Hale remarks. “Right now, I’m on Twitter with Maria Brink and everyday [laughs] we’ll be like, ‘How many votes do you have now?’ It’s a lot of fun for us too.”

Hale also talks about the her little brother Arejay Hale being nominated for Drummer of the Year alongside musicians such as Vinnie Paul. “It’s so funny, he’s so thrilled about that too. He’s like, ‘I’m with Vinnie! It’s so cool.’ I’ve been watching the whole time just getting everyone to vote.”
