42:31 Download October 31st, 2020

Not only does Lzzy Hale front record-breaking GRAMMY® Award-winning platinum rock band Halestorm, but her voice also echoes throughout popular culture at large.  

Since co-founding the band in 1997 during middle school, she has quietly cemented herself as a powerhouse vocalist, deft and dynamic guitarist, and influential force at the forefront of a faithful fanbase. To date, the group’s catalog encompasses two gold singles “Here’s To Us” and “I Get Off,” two gold albums Halestorm and The Strange Case Of…, and one platinum single “I Miss The Misery” in addition to streams in excess of a half-a-billion—all unprecedented accolades for modern rock. They logged two back-to-back Top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top 200, namely Into The Wild Life [2015] and Vicious [2018]. Among a pair of nominations, the musicians notably scored the 2013 GRAMMY® Award for “Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance” in recognition of “Love Bites (So Do I)”.  

Simultaneously, some of the biggest names in rock, pop, hip-hop, and electronic music would seek out Lzzy for high-profile collaborations. She lent her voice to Lindsey Stirling’s gold-certified crossover smash “Shatter Me” in addition to joining forces with Machine Gun Kelly, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Dream Theater, Shinedown, Stone Sour, and more for hard-hitting duets. 

In this episode of 100 Years of Radio -100 Years of Hit Makers, we talk with songwriter and musician Lzzy Hale to hear stories behind the lyrics and songs she helped create. 

100 Years of Radio – 100 Years of Hit Makers special podcast series is produced in partnership with Beasley Media Group, XPERI (HD Radio), and BMI in celebration of the 100-year anniversary of the first commercial radio broadcast.
