Mickey Guyton

Capitol Nashville’s Mickey Guyton releases her new EP, Bridges, today (listen HERE). Bridges features six songs all co-written by Mickey including the previously released tracks “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?,” “Black Like Me” and current single “Heaven Down Here.”  Continuing to receive critical acclaim as the “unapologetic voice country music needs right now” (Paste Magazine), the Texas native is “turning a mirror on country music by speaking her truth” (Associated Press).

Mickey will perform the powerful “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?” as part of the Academy of Country Music Awards on Wednesday (September 16th) live at 8pm ET on CBS.  Variety praised Mickey’s “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?” as “…exquisitely sung, moving and brilliant” while NPR touted it as “a cry of the heart by a remarkable singer and writer who deserves to be a full-on superstar.”

Mickey has recently been highlighted by outlets including Pollstar, NPR, Rolling Stone, Los Angeles Times and more. Originally from Arlington, Texas, Mickey has made a name for herself as a powerhouse vocalist and impressive songwriter. NPR notes, “she’s emerging as a poised and galvanizing country-pop conscience, at once consummate pro, steadfast optimist and truth-teller…a stirring, sumptuous singer” while Billboard calls Mickey, “one of the most promising new voices in country in recent years.” In 2015, she released her self-titled EP featuring her debut single “Better Than You Left Me” and the following year she was nominated for her first ACM Award for New Female Vocalist. Last year, Mickey returned to the ACM Awards stage to perform “I’m Standing With You” from the BREAKTHROUGH movie soundtrack alongside Chrissy Metz, Carrie Underwood, Lauren Alaina and Maddie & Tae. Mickey has been featured on CBS This Morning, ABC’s Good Morning America and NBC’s Today Show. She has also been spotlighted in the Los Angeles Times, PEOPLE, Entertainment Weekly, NPR, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Rolling Stone, Billboard and more.

Mickey Guyton (talking about EP) OC: …around people. :31
“This EP is just so important to me. I wrote a lot of it during this quarantine, and I’m currently in downtown Los Angeles so I’ve seen a lot of protests and things happening outside of my own window and there just seems to be so much pain around the world about this pandemic so I wrote about it. And some interesting facts about this is I’ve written this EP and recorded it through ZOOM. It’s crazy what you can do during a time that you can’t be around people.”
