It's official: Lzzy Hale is Gibson guitars' first female Brand Ambassador.
The news was announced latest during a ceremony at the Gibson Garage in Nashville, Tennessee.
“I am beyond honoured to be named a Gibson ambassador,” the Halestorm frontwoman said in a statement. “Ever since I was 16 years old, it was my dream to someday be a part of the Gibson circle. It’s an incredible feeling to know that this dream has become a reality.”
“Something magical ignites within me when I hold a Gibson guitar in my hands, the same guitars that my forefathers and foremothers of rock slung over their shoulders. With Gibson, I am the rockstar I’m meant to be," she continued. “It is a privilege to represent my genre, my gender, and the incredible power of music that unites us all, with my beautiful Gibson Family.”
In addition to being named Brand Ambassador, Hale also designed a new line of guitars and gear for Gibson.
Hale will surely be shredding on a Gibson when her band goes on tour with Evanescence this fall. Check out the full list of dates below.
