Mickey Guyton is set to release full-length debut album Remember Her Name, on September 24th. The music, grooves, melodies, and lyrics of its 16 songs lay bare the heart of a woman and the life she began to lead once she decided to let her truth set her free. That freedom has been mesmerizingly translated into intimately confessional ballads of piercing power including “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?” and “Black Like Me” and also fizzy ditties like “Rosé” as well as the sultry “Dancing in the Living Room” that remind us that playfulness and passion are necessary partners to reflection. Remember Her Name finds Guyton celebrating her truest voice in ways that will resonate with any listener who has loved, lost, struggled, laughed and lived.

“It’s crazy that the album is a story essentially,” says Guyton of the project that has been both three years and, in some ways, a lifetime in the making.

“I was just writing and writing,” she says. “I didn’t even know what the album meant or what it was going to be, when I was writing these songs. I just started writing songs about my feelings.”

The Texas singer-songwriter understandably had a lot of those having arrived in Nashville a decade ago and been lauded for her powerhouse voice. While some success and accolades followed, including her 2015 hit “Better Than You Left Me,” barriers within the industry seemed insurmountable.

Until one day, she decided to be herself and not the woman Nashville expected her to be. “I had a conversation with my husband three years ago asking him why my career wasn’t really taking off and why it wasn’t working out for me,” recalls Guyton. “He said it was because I was running away from everything that made me different.”

The lightbulb officially clicked on. The positive consequences were almost immediate on every level. Guyton began writing songs that spoke to powerful truths and gained recognition for them, including a Grammy nomination for “Black Like Me,” making her the first black female solo artist to earn a Grammy nomination in a country category. Critical plaudits also poured in from The New York Times, L.A. Times, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone and more with NPR proclaiming succinctly, “Guyton raises the rafters and distills emotion with impeccable clarity. Her high notes thrill, her nuance in storytelling captivates. A star for our times claims her place.”

You can hear Guyton, who was preparing to be a new mom amidst the maelstrom of 2020, staking that claim on the title track, a triumphant anthem of self-assurance: “Where did you lose the girl with no fear?/Oh, she never left/Take a good look, she’s right in the mirror/Don’t let yourself forget/ Remember the fire/Remember her face…Remember the girl that didn’t let anything get in her way.”

She decided to make that song the title track “to remind all of us, including myself, about the strength we have inside that we don’t always know is there,” says Guyton. “As women, there are so many times where we lose ourselves and our dreams as we’re growing up and living life. This song is about a woman rediscovering herself and what made her strong. That is my life story, discovering my own power, and that felt like the right title for the whole album since it explains all the facets of my story.”

Today, four-time GRAMMY-nominated artist Mickey Guyton unveils her new song, “Scary Love.” “Scary Love,” written by Guyton with Emma-Lee, Karen Kosowski, and Victoria Banks, showcases Gutyon’s undying appreciation for motherhood and serves as a ballad dedicated to her three-year-old son, Grayson. Throughout the song, Guyton describes her journey as a mother with poignant lyrics, singing, “Ain’t a thing I wouldn’t do, ain’t a thing I wouldn’t give. It’s the kind you fall into and never hit the bottom of. It’s a scary love. It’s a scary love.”

Guyton also releases a corresponding lyric video for “Scary Love” that features a montage of adorable family footage of Guyton, her husband Grant, and son Grayson.


“There’s so many types of love, but for parents who truly love their kids, there’s nothing we won’t do for them,” Guyton says. “That kind of love is so scary because your heart is literally outside of your body and you’re seeing your heart grow up and become somebody. All you want to do is protect this person – that’s the scariest love that you’ll ever experience.”


The new song coincides with the announcement of the Texas native’s upcoming 22-city headlining tour, CMT ON TOUR Presents Mickey Guyton. The tour, produced by Live Nation, kicks off Sept. 18 at Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta with stops across major cities in the United States and Canada including New York, Chicago, Columbus, St. Louis, Toronto, Washington, D.C. and more.

Audio / Mickey Guyton talks about why she wrote "Scary Love."


Mickey Guyton (Scary Love) 1 OC: …moments of my life. :32
“I wrote ‘Scary Love’ because, you know growing up, our moms were always so crazy. I could never understand why my mom was losing her mind over me. I said ‘Mom, I’m fine,’ and then I had my son Grayson and it changed everything for me, and it made me realize how precious life is. And what a lot of people don’t know is back in November 2021, my son got really sick and he almost died, and it was literally one of the hardest moments of my life.”

Audio / Mickey Guyton explains what "Scary Love" means to her after almost losing her son, Grayson.
