Mickey Guyton scored three Grammy nominations for the 64th Annual Grammy Awards this week (11/23) including one for Best Country Album for her debut album Remember Her Name, and for Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song for the title track, “Remember Her Name,” written by Guyton with Blake Hubbard, Jarrod Ingram, and Parker Welling.
Mickey said upon hearing the news, “I was reminded recently of the C. S. Lewis quote, ‘the longest way round is the shortest way home’ and I am home now. I am a living breathing witness that you should never ever give up on yourself. No matter what anyone says, know your worth and trust your gut no matter how many times anyone tries to push you down.”
She added, “I am so incredibly grateful. This is for Breonna. This is for Grayson. This is for my family. This is for women in country music. This is for people of color in country music. We are here. Our stories matter. Our voices matter.”
It’s been a big couple of years for Guyton, who was also nominated at last year’s (63rd) Grammys and performed on the show.
