Winning the GRAMMY Gig of a Lifetime would mean everything to Lovebettie lead vocal singer Alexandra Naples. "We are super excited and honored to be nominated. Music is about passion and sincerity and connecting with my audience," said Naples. "I cry onstage all the time (the band laughs at me) but it's true. When you see somebody singing the words to a song that's straight out of your heart, it just melts you. That's what it's all about."

Recently deemed a RollingStone.com's "Band to Watch" and called "Pittsburgh's Hottest Band" by Microsoft Windows, Lovebettie is known as pioneers of "Swagger Rock."  This Pittsburgh native group comprised of four members has toured relentlessly, launching them from a local favorite to a national success story.  Lovebettie has performed on Van's Warped Tour, direct support slot on Milwaukee's Summerfest, and featured on Microsoft Windows Media Player.  They have shared bills with multitudes of national acts including: Lifehouse, Hinder, 311, Carly Rae Jepsen, The Joy Formidable, Fuel, Hanson, Rick Springfield, Imagine Dragons, and many more.  In 2010 Lovebettie performed The Official Lady Gaga Afterparty for her Monsters Ball Tour, and were personally selected by Jon Bon Jovi as one of three bands to contend for a tour opening spot.

"We have been working day and night, sacrificing a lot of things people take for granted," continued Naples. "For Lovebettie to win the GRAMMY Gig of a Lifetime would be absolutely incredible because it's putting us in front of a huge audience and giving us that opportunity to prove ourselves and say 'we're here, we mean this.' We've worked hard, very, very hard and we want this badly. We're at the point now that we're ready for that opportunity."
