Track is from forthcoming debut album
Capitol Nashville’s Mickey Guyton releases new song, “Love My Hair” from her forthcoming debut album Remember Her Name out September 24th. Written by Guyton with Anna Krantz, the personal “Love My Hair” continues the theme of self-acceptance and embracing differences that is a thread throughout the entire project.
“I wrote ‘Love My Hair’ after seeing a video of a little black girl who was sent home from school because she was told that her hair was too distracting,” shares Guyton. “Seeing this young girl’s embarrassment and agony brought me back to my own struggles with self-love and I wanted to write a song to this little girl facing adversity because of what God gave her. I want her and anyone facing similar struggles to feel seen.”
The album comes ten years after signing her record contract with several singles and EPs having been released during this period. Guyton teamed with a variety of producers for the project, including Karen Kosowski, Johnny Simmen, Gavin Slate, Nathan Chapman, Andy Skib, Forest Whitehead, David Kalmusky, and Jimmy Robbins.
Guyton earned her first ever CMA nomination yesterday (Thurs, Sept 9th) for New Artist of the Year, adding to the incredible year that has seen 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.
Guyton also has her rendition of Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters” available as part of The Metallica Blacklist celebrating the band’s 30th anniversary celebration reissue of The Black Album.
