Mickey Guyton: An Artist That’s Beyond Reproach

Talks Dolly Parton's Influence on New Song “Nice Things”

Ask Mickey Guyton how much she loves Dolly Parton and she will rattle on for forever and a day about the country icon.

News correspondent Gayle King knew how much Guyton loved Parton and worked for approximately eight months to coordinate a meeting between the two stars in spring 2016.

“She is a true boss,” Guyton tells CMT.com about Parton. “And she wrote some of the most amazing songs. She came up in a time that was extremely conservative but she had such progressive views. She taught people to love for who they are no matter what and I think that’s amazing.

“Plus, imagine coming up in the country music world when it was extremely conservative and you had these giant boobs. I’m sure she might have gotten judged for them and she did not care. That is so admirable that she is OK with being different and her talent speaks for itself.”

Like Parton, Guyton is an artist that is beyond reproach. Ask anyone on Music Row about Guyton, and they will say nothing but nice things about her until the cows come home. Guyton has one of the most recognizable voices in today’s country music that can sing anything.

Her latest release “Nice Things,” co-written with Liz Rose and Stephanie Chapman, follows in the lineage of Parton’s classic storytelling. Guyton says it’s another taste of what fans can expect to hear on her upcoming album.
