Mickey Guyton made her American Music Awards performance debut with her single “All American” on Sunday, November 21.

Live from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, CA, the GRAMMY-nominated singer brought her unifying single to life on the AMAs stage.

Joined by a live band on a set that was reminiscent of a Nashville honky-tonk, Guyton delivered a powerful performance of “All American” that earned a roaring applause from the audience.  

“There’s been so much division and I think this song can really bring people together and be proud of who they are,” Guyton previously shared of the track.

Co-written by Guyton alongside Victoria Banks, Emma-Lee and Karen Kosowki, “All American” appears on Guyton’s long-awaited debut album, Remember Her Name, which was released on September 24.
