Mickey Guyton: The Winding Road to Country Music Stardom

Thanks for tuning in to the Andy Hnilo Show! I have a great episode for you today, as Mickey Guyton joins us for an inspiring conversation. Mickey is not only a longtime friend (having worked together back in the day at Abercrombie & Fitch), she is an American country music singer and songwriter currently signed with Capitol Nashville Records. She is also one of the few African American country artists to make a name for her self, in a predominately white/male industry. Today we cover the winding journey that music has taken her on, from a kid growing up in Waco Texas, to the bright lights of Los Angeles. The road is never clear, as there were many obstacles she had to overcome. Mickey readily admits “I was ready to give up and move home to Texas,” but her gut told her to stay a little longer… and it made all the difference, as a chance encounter changed her life. Her message is clear. Never give up on your dreams; you might be one inch away from the treasure you seek. Enjoy the show!
