About Mickey Guyton
Mickey Guyton was born in Arlington, Texas, and began singing in church at a young age. She was drawn to a variety of artists with big voices including Dolly Parton, Cece Winans, Whitney Houston, and LeAnn Rimes. After signing to Capitol Records Nashville, Mickey’s first appearance was an all-star concert at the White House captured by PBS. In 2015, she released her self-titled EP featuring her debut single, "Better Than You Left Me.” The following year she was nominated for her first Academy of Country Music Award for New Female Vocalist. Mickey returned to the ACM Awards in 2019 performing "I’m Standing With You” from the BREAKTHROUGH movie soundtrack alongside Chrissy Metz, Carrie Underwood, Lauren Alaina, and Maddie & Tae. During the last few years, Mickey has been focused on her songwriting and will release her EP, Bridges, on Sept. 11. Bridges will include "What Are You Gonna Tell Her?”, which Variety called "... exquisitely sung, moving and brilliant,” as well as, "Black Like Me,” a song Mickey cowrote in March 2019 at a cross-genre writing camp. Due to demand, "Black Like Me” was released in June and has been praised by critics and fans alike, with HITS noting the song "nudges America’s conscience with personal truth and gospel fervor.” Her latest single, "Heaven Down Here,” was written in recent months as a plea to God to spare a little love for this world in need.
