Country artist Mickey Guyton has had a pioneering year. In November, Mickey became the first Black female solo artist to be nominated for a Grammy; and made history once again as she co-hostws the Academy of Country Music Awards alongside Keith Urban.

The conversation with Mickey Guyton is led by Keiana Martin who herself is a woman of color working in a field dominated by white men. Mickey reflects on her trailblazing journey in the music industry. 

“I have imposter syndrome and there are many nights where I don’t feel like I’m worthy. I’ve got to be honest, it’s a big problem for me. I have a heavy heart because I’ve been working behind the scenes trying to open up opportunities for black people in this genre. I’m the only black woman signed to a major record label right now.”
