Mickey Guyton has been on a soul-searching journey the last few years focusing on her songwriting. “Sister,” co-written by Mickey, Nathan Spicer and Victoria Banks is the first song from this period of introspection and inspiration. Produced by Forest Glen Whitehead (Kelsea Ballerina), “Sister” is an anthem for female support and solidarity.
“Sisterhood is truly what gets me through every day,” explains Mickey. “I have two sisters but anyone who knows me, knows I call all the women in my life sister. I wrote this song during a time when I challenged myself to write more honestly, be more open about my feelings, and reflect on how I’ve been uplifted by so many women in my life. ‘Sister’ is about my love relationship with all my sisters, and how we lean on each other through highs and lows.”
Mickey is currently in the studio with Forest working on more new music. In April her song “Hold On” which she co-wrote with Karen Kosowski and Victoria Banks is featured the major motion picture BREAKTHROUGH starring Chrissy Metz (This Is Us). The poignant and uplifting song was written and recorded in less than 24 hours after Mickey received a summary of a scene in the film. At this year’s ACM Awards, Mickey performed alongside Metz, Carrie Underwood, Lauren Alaina and Maddie & Tae, the song “I’m Standing With You” also from the BREAKTHROUGH movie soundtrack.
Mickey has been featured on CBS This Morning, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today Show. She has also been spotlighted in PEOPLE, Entertainment Weekly, NPR, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Rolling Stone & Billboard.
She’s been hard at work on her music and hard at work on herself the past couple of years. Check out the short video below of what she’s been up to lately.

Mickey Guyton (Sister) 1 OC: …my sisters. :56
“I really wanted to write a song about my sisters, and if anybody knows me, I call people my sister. I have two sisters of my own, and anytime I talk to someone, like you’re my sister. I wanted to write something that really happens. The words are, ‘Sister, I’ve got your back on a long drunk stumble home.’ I can’t tell you how many times my girlfriends, or even my sisters have picked up the phone needing me at like two o’clock in the morning and vice versa for me. I go over there, pick them up, help them, whatever it is. And I just felt like it was so important to show women relationships – sisterhood – because it is truly what gets us through every day. We have our own romantic relationships, but there is nothing like your sisters; there’s nothing like your relationship with your girlfriends. There’s just nothing like it. This song really is just about that – it’s my love relationship with my sisters.”
