Lean into your uniqueness

Mickey Guyton, Singer-songwriter

As a young girl raised on the gravel roads of central Texas, Mickey Guyton falls in love with country music – but as a Black woman in a traditionally white industry, her authenticity is constantly questioned: Too Black. Too white. Not country enough. Plagued by self-doubt, Mickey’s breakthrough comes when she leans in to what makes her unique – and finds her true voice. Photo credit: Phylicia J.L. Munn.
