Nashville’s Mickey Guyton will release her album, Remember Her Name, on September 24th. Mickey co-penned 15 of the 16 songs on the album. Remember Her Name follows the release of her critically acclaimed EP Bridges which included “Black Like Me” for which she went on to receive a historic GRAMMY nomination. Her performance on the prestigious GRAMMY show was the first by a Black female country artist and was touted by NPR as “the night’s most affecting live performance.”
“Remember Her Name is a culmination of the last ten years of my life in Nashville,” shares Guyton. “This album is the closing of a chapter. All those years ago, I set out to create music that would make people feel self-empowered, loved, and comfortable with being themselves and this album holds true to all of that. I hope everyone who listens finds something that connects and speaks to them.”
Mickey 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 The Associated Press.

After signing to Capitol Records Nashville, Mickey’s first appearance was an all-star concert at the White House captured by PBS. In 2015 she released her self-titled EP featuring her debut single “Better Than You Left Me,” which he co-wrote with Jennifer Hanson, Jenn Schott and Nathan Chapman. The single made Country Aircheck history as the single highest one-week add total for a debut first single. In 2016 she was nominated for her for first Academy of Country Music Award for New Female Vocalist. At this year’s ACM Awards, Mickey performed alongside Chrissy Metz, Carrie Underwood, Lauren Alaina and Maddie & Tae, the song “I’m Standing With You” from the BREAKTHROUGH movie soundtrack.
