MICKEY GUYTON RELEASES NEW SONG “LOVE MY HAIR”

DEBUT ALBUM REMEMBER HER NAME OUT SEPTEMBER 24

 

MICKEY EARNS CMA NEW ARTIST OF THE YEAR NOMINATION

 

 

10 SEPTEMBER 2021 (TORONTO, ON) – Capitol Nashville/Universal Music Canada's, the country's leading music company, Mickey Guyton releases new song, Love My Hair today from her forthcoming debut album Remember Her Name out September 24. Written by Mickey with Anna Krantz, the personal “Love My Hair” continues the theme of self-acceptance and embracing differences that is a thread throughout Remember Her Name.

 

If I could go back to twelve

I would tell myself

That straight up or down

Baby, that’s your crown

Whoever made up those rules

They don’t apply to you

Straight up or down

Turn the world around

 

“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 Mickey.  “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.”
