Mickey Guyton Tries to Find the Words to Sum Up Her Feelings

Mickey Guyton Tries to Find the Words to Sum Up Her Feelings

Mickey Guyton is having a break out year in 2021 — personally and professional.

On the personal side, she gave birth to her son in February.

On the professional side, in 2021, she made her late-night debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, received an ACM New Female of the Year nomination, AND was also asked by Keith Urban to co-host the ACM Awards show, plus she performed on the Grammy Awards!

And it’s just mid-March!

Mickey recently shared a video montage of the events leading up to her Grammy performance, with the caption, “I have sat here and tried to find the words to write up the perfect caption for this video but the only thing I could come up with is how grateful I am. This moment would not be possible without so many people. It really took a village. I do not take this moment for granted and I will continue to stand up for what is right and for what is good. I love you guys so much. Thank you for believing and if there is anything to take away from this is to never EVER give up on yourself.”

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
