Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale salutes “fore mothers of rock n’ roll” in honor of Women’s History Month.
On her Tumblr page she shared the following statement:
“I’ve been in Halestorm for nearly 20 years. If it wasn’t for our ‘Fore Mothers of Rock n Roll’ who came before me, I may not be where I am today. They showed me that it was possible, and that even with all the odds against you, and obstacles in your way… you can achieve your dream. They did not give in, they did not quit, they did not wither. They were a powerful force in inspiring and encouraging me to go after My dream.
It’s a reminder, ladies, of how important it is for us to encourage one another. We must be examples, and show our fellow femmes that society’s definition of a ‘woman’ is false. To be a woman is not one idea of what a woman should be. We are the sum of many women who were brave enough to take risks, carve paths, stand out and be unapologetically themselves. All the great women of history were not the ones who followed the rules, or kept their eyes to the ground. No, all the great women thinkers, inventors, artists and leaders were the woman who broke from the chain, and swam against the current.”
She also pointed out that the commentary is not meant to be a “boys vs. girls” post, and that boys are also “taught some pretty warped things too about what it means to be a ‘man.'”
