  • CHRISTMAS 2021: Mickey Guyton

    Mickey Guyton is so excited for this Christmas since it’ll be the first she and husband Grant Savoy celebrate as parents. She cannot wait to make Christmas very special for son Grayson.

    “I am so excited about Christmas this year. As an adult when you don’t have children, the luster of Christmas had kind of gone away for me. But now that I have this baby boy, I just want to make sure that every holiday he celebrates is special, and especially Christmas. It’s gonna be amazing,” says Mickey. “Uhhhh, I can’t wait!”

    When she and her family go home for Texas for the holidays, the thing that has to be on the dinner table is her mom’s Italian Cream Cake, which is also a staple at Thanksgiving.

    “My mom makes this homemade, from scratch, Italian Cream Cake. It’s so freaking good, and every Christmas and every Thanksgiving, she makes this,” says Mickey. “Our families all come to my parents’ house, and we have a big dinner, and that’s the first thing that to go. That’s like the first thing that people eat the most.”

    One of her favorite childhood memories during Christmas was when her family performed a last-minute Christmas play moments before opening their presents. “One of my favorite Christmas memories is my family, [laughs] there’s a lot of us, and one day we did an impromptu play before we opened our Christmas presents. We just pretended like we were the Wise Men. We did the story of the birth of Jesus, and we filmed it. It was just a really cool memory for me.”

    The songstress released a gorgeous rendition of the classic “O Holy Night,” and a few years ago, she released “Do You Want to Build a Snowman,” from the smash hit, Frozen. She says both are her favorite holiday songs.

    “My favorite Christmas song is ‘O Holy Night,’ but I really love ‘Do You Want to Build a Snowman.’ So, both of those are like my all-time favorite.”
