Halestorm, a hard rock band with roots in Red Lion, won a Grammy Sunday night.

It won the Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance for the song "Love Bites (So Do I)."

Elizabeth Hale, who goes by the vowel-free name "Lzzy," and brother Arejay Hale are both of Red Lion and are founding members of Halestorm.

"This Grammy is dedicated to all the Halestorm Freaks," Lzzy Hale purportedly wrote in a message the accompanied a photograph she posted on the photo-sharing website Instagram.com. "Here's to us."

Lzzy Hale is the band's lead vocalist, backed by her drummer brother, guitarist Joe Hottinger and bassist Josh Smith. Halestorm signed with Atlantic Records in 2005.

This was the first year the band was nominated for and won a Grammy.

Food break: The local rockers were up against some tough competition.

Also nominated in the category were Marilyn Manson, Anthrax, Iron Maiden, Lamb of God and Megadeth.

After winning the Grammy, Arejay Hale posted a picture on Instagram of himself chowing down on a McDonald's sandwich.

"Who eats McDonald's at the Grammys? Me. (Because) we just won," he purportedly wrote in an accompanying message.

Halestorm recently released its second studio album, "The Strange Case Of...", featuring tracks including "Daughters of Darkness," "I Miss the Misery," and the Grammy award-winning "Love Bites (So Do I.)"

Halestorm got its start in Red Lion about 15 years ago, when Lzzy and Arejay Hale first took the stage as kids.


The two siblings cut their musical teeth playing at places like the York Fair and the Tourist Inn in Hellam Township.
