To celebrate Mother’s Day (in the USA, UK’s was in March), Halestorm released the lyric video for new track Dear Daughter.
Frontwoman Lzzy Hale said of the ballad: “This song was inspired by a conversation I had with my parents about 2 1/2 years ago. We started this band when I was 13, and my parents supported our decision to immerse ourselves completely in music. What they never let on was that they were terrified for their little girl, whom they wanted to protect from all the ups and downs they knew I’d have to face following my dream. But they took a deep breath, put on their brave face and encouraged me to go for it at all costs. This song is not only an ode to my parents and their unwavering love and support, but it is a passing of the torch to all the young girls I meet and perform in front of every night. I’m living proof that you can do anything you want to in this life full of love, pain, hope and fear. Keep your head held high, and go for it at all costs. If anyone tries to tell you you can’t… Tell ’em to come talk to me!”
