It’s ALWAYS great to talk with Lzzy Hale. She’s so easy to chat with and very candid every time we speak.
She spoke to being a mid-state Pennsylvania kid, meeting and playing with her heroes. She mentioned that she grew up in a house that was built in the 1840’s, so I had to ask her if she’d ever seen a ghost in that old home. Let’s just say, she didn’t say no.
As far as Halestorm is concerned, she said it’s “Complete Chaos”. They’re going to buckle down next month and get to writing. She tells me how they write songs and what the process involves. Plus, she talks about a song she wrote that she never thought would see the light of day, which they did record. Let’s just say it became a hit. “There’s always a handful of songs (that she writes) that I think are dumb.” That’s a sexy story. LOL
As far as collaborations go, she told me how the Ashly McBryde collab came up. “It was a full on “F&*k Yes!”” She went onto say “She exceeded my expectations” as for how the song went. We talked about the Journey cover she did with Chris Daughtry, who also sent me a question for her to answer. That was funny as well.
If you’re watching this, you’ll see a piano in the background. I stumped her with naming musicians who’ve played on it. That was very entertaining. She did tell me about a metal legend who had tickled the ivory at her house. Really cool!
I’ll talk to Lzzy anytime she wants me to. She’s the best!
