This country singer is building Bridges and uniting listeners with her music.
Mickey Guyton, Texas-born songwriter, is nominated in this year’s Grammy Awards for her single “Black Like Me” for best country solo performance.
The “Caught Up in Your Storm” singer told PEOPLE in 2020 that creating the single was a part of the process of finding her voice as an artist as well as speaking on her own experience of being Black in America amidst a time of racial violence in the country.
“As long as I can spark conversation, that’s really all that matters,” Guyton said. “All of this music was created from love. And that’s what my message is. It’s spreading truth and love.”
Her powerful vocals are also showcased on her most recent EP, Bridges, on songs like “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?” and “Heaven Down Here.”
Listen to her latest single, “Boys,” with singer Dean Brody.
