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.”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
