Mickey Guyton has released the title track of her upcoming debut album. “Remember Her Name,” written by Guyton with Parker Welling, Blake Hubbard, and Jarrod Ingram, is a sharp slice of power-pop country with an empowering message that dovetails with Guyton’s own experience in Nashville.
“Remember her laughing through all the pain/remember the girl who didn’t let anything get in her way,” she sings.
Pulsing drum sounds and bird-call guitar tones frame Guyton’s dynamic voice, which she flexes throughout the track. Near song’s end, she hits a particularly dramatic, forceful note that transforms into a defiant yell. The title track arrives with an accompanying video that shows Guyton, in the stunning dress from the LP’s cover art, moving across a rocky landscape.
Remember Her Name will be released by Capitol Nashville on September 24th, a decade after the Texas native signed her deal with the label. The album is the follow-up to Guyton’s 2020 Bridges EP and features a new version of her 2015 single “Better Than You Left Me” and a cover of Béyonce’s “If I Were a Boy.”
On August 24th, Guyton will join artists like Keith Urban, Sam Hunt, and Old Dominion at the ACM’s Party for a Cause concert at Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville.
