Mickey Guyton

Today, on International Women’s Day, Mickey Guyton is celebrating with all her ladies as she releases her new song, “Woman.” The four-time GRAMMY-nominated country queen is honoring women around the world with an ode to women’s empowerment. Written by Guyton with Victor Franco, Oliver Frid, Kameron Glasper and Tayla Parx, “Woman” is Guyton’s first release this year with more music expected in the coming months.

“I loved the idea of writing a song that celebrates the power women have,” says Guyton. “Throughout history and even today, women have taken pain, setbacks, and doubt, and they turn that into inner strength, and they persevere to achieve incredible things. Releasing this on International Women’s Day seemed only fitting. We’re miracle workers, y’all!”

Guyton set to perform at the Grand Ole Opry tonight. Fans can tune in on the Opry Facebook and YouTube channels or tune in to the Opry’s radio home WSM at 7pm CT.

Mickey Guyton (Woman) OC: …little moment. :42
“The idea actually came from Tayla (Parx). At the time there was so much going on online about what defined a woman, and there was so many interpretations and the whole internet was ablaze, and we thought it was so important to release a song called ‘Woman’ on International Women’s Day. It’s funny how we wrote it. Tayla was actually in her Tesla driving from New York to L.A., so we literally wrote this song while she was in, while her Tesla was driving to L.A. and it was just a special moment and the song just felt so powerful. We wrote it about two years ago maybe, and so it’s just so really cool to finally seeing it have a little moment.”
