Capitol Records Nashville’s Mickey Guyton releases her debut album Remember Her Name this Friday (September 24th). On release day, she is set to perform on NBC’s TODAY Summer Concert Series followed by NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday (September 27th) and ABC’s The View on September 28th.
Featured on Sunday’s (Sept. 19) The New York Times Arts & Leisure music cover, Guyton shares, “There’s so much on this record that is so positive, that is so inclusive,” while the outlet says, “Though it tackles some deeply scarred subject matter, ‘Remember Her Name’ is, at heart, a fundamentally optimistic album, from its resolute lyrical stands on decency and empathy to its production, which is often reminiscent of the majestic, big-tent country music of the 1990s.”
Guyton, who is currently nominated for CMA New Artist of the Year, also has her episode of “Live from My Den,” an Artists Den intimate concert streaming now exclusively on Variety.
Guyton co-penned 15 of the 16 songs on Remember Her Name including the recently released “Love My Hair,” “All American,” which she performed on ABC’s CMA Summer Jam earlier this month, title track “Remember Her Name,” and Grammy-nominated “Black Like Me.”
Guyton is coming off an incredible year that saw her co-hosting the 56th Academy of Country Music Awards in April with labelmate Keith Urban, a historic performance and nomination for “Black Like Me” on the 63rd GRAMMY Awards in March and “Black Like Me” being named a Top 5 song of 2020 (all genre) by NPR and Associated Press.
Billboard recently featured Guyton on its cover and The New Yorker also profiled her in a recent issue. Over the last year she has been featured in American Songwriter, BBC News, CBS This Morning, Disney+ Turning the Tables with Robin Roberts, Ebony, Elle, Entertainment Weekly, Essence, HITS, The Kelly Clarkson Show, Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Los Angeles Times, New York Magazine’s Vulture, The New York Times, PEOPLE, Pollstar, Rolling Stone, Today Show, USA Today, Variety, VIBE, Vogue, Washington Post and many more.
