Lzzy Hale to Host the 2021 She Rocks Awards

Lzzy HaleWe’re excited to announce that the incredible, vivacious and talented Lzzy Hale is our host for the 2021 She Rocks Awards! 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)”. The latter smash affirmed the quartet’s place in the history books as “the first female-fronted band to hit #1 on the Active Rock radio charts.Halestorm was also named Loudwire’s “Artist of the Decade” in 2019. In addition to selling out shows worldwide, they shared stages with the likes of Eric Church, Joan Jett, Avenged Sevenfold, Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie, ZZ Top, and Evanescence, to name a few.

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, The Hu, Shinedown, Stone Sour, and more for hard-hitting duets.

Among many accolades, Loudwire crowned her “2018 Rock Artist of the Year,” and she took home “Dimebag Darrell Shredder of the Year” at the 2016 Metal Hammer “Golden Gods Awards.” A critical favorite, Consequence of Sound claimed, “Lzzy Hale sings with a passion, range and grit that rivals any vocalist in the world, and Rolling Stone put it best, “Hale is bringing female sexual empowerment to hard rock.

In 2020, she was honored with the Inspire Award at the eighth annual She Rocks Awards. Going forward, Lzzy’s voice only resounds louder with each record, tour, and collaboration.
