Gibson has announced that Lzzy Hale, frontwoman of Halestorm, will join Gibson as their first woman Brand Ambassador. In celebration of the team up, Hale has designed two (already sold-out) guitars with Gibson and Epiphone luthiers, called The Gibson Lzzy Hale Explorer and Epiphone Lzzy Hale Explorer. In addition to being a brand ambassador for Gibson, Hale will also be part of the Gibson Gives Artist Advisory Council to help drive the culture of giving back. Hale shared her excitement by saying, “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. 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.”
