• MICKEY GUYTON RELEASES NEW SONG “LOVE MY HAIR.”

    Capitol Nashville’s Mickey Guyton releases new song, “Love My Hair” today from her forthcoming debut album Remember Her Name out September 24th. Written by Mickey with Anna Krantz, the personal “Love My Hair” continues the theme of self-acceptance and embracing differences that is a thread throughout Remember Her Name.

    If I could go back to twelve

    I would tell myself

    That straight up or down

    Baby, that’s your crown

    Whoever made up those rules

    They don’t apply to you

    Straight up or down

    Turn the world around

    “I wrote ‘Love My Hair’ after seeing a video of a little Black girl who was sent home from school because she was told that her hair was too distracting,” shares Mickey.  “Seeing this young girl’s embarrassment and agony brought me back to my own struggles with self-love and I wanted to write a song to this little girl facing adversity because of what God gave her. I want her and anyone facing similar struggles to feel seen.”
