MICKEY GUYTON GETS PERSONAL
12/4/20

Capitol Nashville’s Mickey Guyton recently guest starred on the latest episode of the Spotify podcast, Country Shine with Graham Bunn

In the special episode, entitled Mickey Guyton’s True Self, the country star speaks with co-host Bunn and Camryn Irwinabout being a female POC in the country music scene, inspirations like Whitney Houston, Celine Dion and LeeAnn Rimes, learning about country music from Dolly Parton and more.

As the first solo Black woman to get a Grammy nom in a country music category, Guyton also speaks on her single “Black Like Me,” which was nominated for Best Country Solo Performance, career defining moments like her performance of “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?” with Keith Urban at the ACMs as well as the impact of Maren MorrisCMA Awards acceptance speech.

“Representation...still getting the opportunities to be on the radio...that is still a major obstacle for women. You can look at the charts even today. And, even with this platform and me talking about being a woman of color. I also want to stand up for white women as well within the country music industry and their own struggles….and so I would say that is one of my biggest obstacles…. representation as well,” shared Guyton.
