PREPARING FOR PARENTHOOD
Guyton and Savoy, who tied the knot in Hawaii in 2017, are now busy preparing a nursery room and baby essentials for their child. The couple has also bought a stroller in downtown Los Angeles.
As they prepare for parenthood, Guyton hopes that she can give her son a bright future despite the rampant racial injustices. The issue has weighed heavily on the “Black In Me” singer.
For Guyton, 2020 is a tough year. She shared that Savoy fell victim to racial discrimination at the hands of a white woman who lashed out at him.
A SUPPORTIVE MOTHER
Aware that her future son may experience the same situation, Guyton is praying that her son will grow up to become a strong and independent person. She will support him in every way she can.
Being one of the few Black artists in Nashville, Guyton has been an inspiration to young Black women. She will continue using her voice to make a difference and to promote diversity and inclusion in the industry.
Fellow country singer Kelsea Ballerini described Guyton's performance as "a force" on stage.
MICKEY MAKING HISTORY
A proud Black woman, Guyton has made her community beam with pride. She made history as the first Black female country artist to perform her own song during this year’s 55th Academy of Country Music Awards.
She performed her hit song, "What Are You Gonna Tell Her?" with Keith Urban on piano. Her song deeply moved many artists during the awards night.
Many country artists had attached a “#MickeyMakesHistory” to their social media comments while praising the singer. Fellow country singer Kelsea Ballerini described Guyton's performance as "a force" on stage.
SPEAKING HER TRUTH THROUGH MUSIC
Gracing the prestigious convention of famous country music superstars became Guyton’s way of reclaiming both her career and identity. She was plagued with doubts considering that white men dominate the genre.
As she continues to thrive in the country music scene, Guyton will soldier on in speaking her truth by sharing music mixed with her advocacy to uplift the Black community.
