Recently named one of the Country Music Association (CMA’s) 2013 New Artists to Watch, 15-year-old Lizzie Sider has accomplished a lot, including: garnering the attention of some big names in Nashville, New York and Los Angeles.
Lizzie, a Florida native who lives in Boca Raton, recently performed her song “Butterfly,” on the nationally-syndicated Queen Latifah Show.
Lizzie will perform at 80 schools throughout California during her campaign to bring awareness to the anti-bullying movement.
Lizzie’s song “Butterfly,” was written about her own experiences being bullied and how she overcame the teasing and learned a life lesson within the words of her father.
“My goal is to spread a good message and hopefully inspire these kids. I always wanted to inspire and help people. It’s something I have always been passionate about,” she said.
A victim of bullying at a young age, Lizzie shared the idea of hitting the road to promote an anti-bullying agenda with her parents, and after reaching out to California schools, the 80-stop tour was born.
“Every time after these assemblies, the kids come up to me afterwards and I get to talk to them and really make friends. I can’t describe the feeling I get when these kids tell me that I have inspired them. It really makes my heart smile.”
Lizzie performs to an average crowd of about 500 children — ranging in age from kindergarten through 8th grade.
“Butterfly,” which she co-wrote with Jamie O’Neal about her experiences being bullied in school, recently ranked in the Top 40 in the Music Row Charts in Nashville.
“My dad told me, ‘Nobody has the power to ruin your day,’” which is the theme of the tour.
“Butterfly has become my anthem and I want it to inspire others and for it to give them courage to spread the message that nobody has the power to ruin your day.”
The 80 School Bully Prevention Assembly Tour in California is Lizzie’s idea and is endorsed by Pacer.org, the United States National Bully Prevention Organization.
Lizzie is working on a new album for release sometime in 2014 and recently participated in her first CMA Fest with her own booth and a LIVE performance at the famed country music venue, The Wildhorse.
She will be touring Florida schools in January and February 2014.

LIZZIE SIDER, 15-year old emerging country artist, performed her self-penned song, “Butterfly,” on The Queen Latifah Show earlier this week (Tuesday, October 8 –http://queenlatifah.com/loving/lizzie-sider-heads-out-on-anti-bullying-tour). The appearance coincides with the launch of her bullying prevention assembly tour. As a spokesperson for PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center in relation to October’s National Bullying Prevention Month, which was launched by PACER in 2006, Sider announced the launch of an over 80-school tour to speak to students throughout the state of California. Visiting Elementary and Middle Schools, and performing “Butterfly,” Sider will conduct more than 70 assemblies during the tour, often meeting with students from multiple schools a day. The tour began on October 7 at in the northwest part of the state and will end on November 26 in California’s southeastern desert.
During the assemblies, Sider will encourage kids to help prevent bullying as she recounts her own personal journey as a young student who was teased. She will also perform her original song “Butterfly,” which Sider co-wrote about her experience and how she overcame the teasing. Sider’s goal is to help kids as a positive role model, having risen above her own ridicule, to pursue a career in music.
Says Julie Hertzog, the Director of PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center: “Butterfly is a song that helps young people realize that we all have potential and something important to offer.”
Sider has been interviewed by Access Hollywood, Billboard, Hallmark’s Home & Family show, TIME for Kids, Nashville’s Crook & Chase, and was named by the Country Music Association as an “Artist to Watch in 2013.” Sider, who splits her time between Boca Raton, FL and Nashville, TN, recently participated in her first CMA Fest week with her own booth and with a live performance at the famed country music venue, the Wildhorse Saloon. Both “Butterfly” and Sider’s follow-up single, “I Love You That Much,” charted in the Top 40 on Music Row. The video for “I Love You That Much” was directed by award-winning Steven Goldmann, whose past credits include Alan Jackson, Martina McBride and Shania Twain. Sider is currently working on her first full-length studio album for release in 2014.
PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center unites, engages, and educates communities nationwide to prevent bullying through the use of creative, interactive resources. PACER offers educators, students, families, and individuals the tools they need to address bullying in schools, the community, and online. Through her partnership with PACER, Lizzie has shared her song and reflection questions that are posted at PACER.org/bullying as resources that can be used in the classroom to creatively explore the issues around bullying.
