Billboard announced this morning that Hayley will be receiving the first ever Trailblazer Award at this year’s Women in Music Awards. This award “honors a standout female artist who breaks from convention to make a unique mark in music and pave the way for other talent,” according to Colin Stutz, who penned the announcement via this article. This is a huge honor, and Hayley seems just as excited as we are:
“I can remember a time when I would’ve been made fun of for doing things differently. Now I’m getting an award for it? This is too much. I’m so excited!” says Williams. “There are women in this industry who totally bulldozed walls down for the likes of me to come along and do what I believe in. I want to be that for even one girl in the future. I can’t wait for the event next month and to high-five some of my sisters in music.”
Congratulations to Hayley on this achievement! She has definitely left a mark on the industry and has influenced so many artists and musicians. Paramore as a whole has accomplished so much in music the past decade and we’re proud to be their fans!

Kelly Clarkson announced a special concert called Miracle on Broadway a few days ago on Twitter, along with a list of special guests. Hayley was one of the guests named, and she will be appearing at the show, presumably to perform with Kelly.
Miracle on Broadway is a benefit concert for a handful of charities, including Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital, Monroe Harding Children’s Home, Second Harvest Food Bank, and Thistle Farms. The event will take place Saturday, December 20th at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.
Tickets are on sale as of today, and you can purchase tickets here. More information on the concert is available here.
It’s hard to believe it’s been FIVE years since brand new eyeswas released in the U.S. and Canada! It is, however, easy to say that this album has gotten a lot of us through some tough times, and has soundtracked some rather good ones too! Come celebrate with us on Twitter, and check out what Paramore and other fans are saying about the anniversary.
Paramore talked with Bobby Bones before their performance about starting out as a band without the internet, their growth throughout the years and, of course, ‘N Sync. The whole interview is right below for you to watch!
