Last night at The Grammys, hard rock newcomers (and personal favorites of yours truly,) took home their first win for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance for their incredible song, “Love Bites (But So Do I.)” The group were the obvious underdogs in a category full of legends such as Iron Maiden, Marilyn Manson, Megadeth, Lamb Of God, and Anthrax, but surprisingly pulled through in the end, winning the award during the show’s pre-telecast ceremony.
When accepting their award, drummer Arejay Hale took to the podium to say:
“Oh Christ, completely did not expect this! Thanks to our parents for turning us into great music. Most parents want their kids to be doctors and lawyers and our parents encouraged us to join the circus.”
Lzzy Hale, lead singer and sister of Arejay, then stepped up and gave a special thanks to Iron Maiden and Lamb Of God for being a huge inspiration to her, and dedicated the Grammy to all the “Halestorm Freaks,” gleefully exclaiming:
“Here’s to us!”
Here’s to you, indeed, Halestorm, and here’s to hoping that this Grammy is one of many in the future. Congratulations!
