Lzzy Hale Details Her First Meeting With Heart’s Ann Wilson

Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale recently spoke to FM99 WNOR radio station and recalled her first meeting with Ann Wilson of Heart, which didn’t go as she expected.

Ann Wilson is one of the mighty women in the rock music scene with a music career full of achievements. Her band Heart is the first hard rock band fronted by women, and she has been contributing to the group with her sister Nancy Wilson since the early 1970s.

In addition, Lzzy Hale is another female figure in the male-dominated rock music scene. Heart’s Ann Wilson is a great inspiration source for her, and she tries to support women in rock with all of her heart. In a recent interview with FM99 WNOR, Hale recalled meeting her hero Wilson for the first time.

Hale stated that she had a chance to meet Ann Wilson several weeks ago, and meeting her was a beautiful moment. However, it turned out that Hale expected Wilson to be more lively and energetic, but Wilson was a quiet and calm person who was happy to be there.

Moreover, Hale revealed that she owes Wilson her current place in the scene as a singer. Then, she admitted she wasn’t picturing the Heart singer in her mind like that due to her powerful voice. Saying it was a surprising encounter, the Halestorm lead stated Wilson is so loud when she sings but quiet when she talks.

Here is what Lzzy Hale said about meeting Ann Wilson:

“And then, on the surprising end of it, and this is not a bad thing, but I just got to meet Ann Wilson for the first time a couple of weeks ago, and it was such a beautiful moment, but she’s so quiet. She’s so just calm and subdued and is just happy to be there. And I was picturing in my mind that because of her powerful voice.

I mean, I wouldn’t be the singer I am today without her. I was expecting something a little more energetic and lively, and she’s just cool as a cucumber. So that was just surprising, like, ‘You’re so loud when you sing, but you’re so quiet when you talk.’ So that was kind of cool and surprising, but, again, not super detrimental.”
