Vocal powerhouse Mickey Guyton is back with a new song and it’s an anthem for women everywhere.

Guyton co-wrote the new track, aptly titled, “Sister,” alongside Nathan Spicer and Victoria Banks. The powerful song was written during a time when the Texas native stepped away from the spotlight to focus on her songwriting. Produced by Forest Glen Whitehead, “Sister” serves as the introduction to the much-anticipated next chapter of Guyton’s career.

The song is one Guyton couldn’t be more proud of as it comes from a very personal place.

“Sisterhood is truly what gets me through every day,” she shares.  “I have two sisters but anyone who knows me, knows I call all the women in my life sister.  I wrote this song during a time when I challenged myself to write more honestly, be more open about my feelings, and reflect on how I’ve been uplifted by so many women in my life.  ‘Sister’ is about my love relationship with all my sisters, and how we lean on each other through highs and lows.”

The song’s empowering lyrics have Guyton vowing to stand by her sisters, no matter what.

“Sister / I got your back on the long drunk stumble home / Sister / I’ll be your hell yeah, when all you ever heard was no / I’m your speed dial call / I’m your late-night cry / I’m your shotgun seat / Yeah, I’m your ride or die / Sister,” she sings throughout the chorus.

Earlier this year, Guyton made headlines with the debut of her song “Hold On,” which was featured on the soundtrack of the film Breakthrough, starring Chrissy Metz.

Guyton is currently back in the studio with Whitehead working on even more new music. If “Sister” is any indication of what’s to come from Guyton, fans are surely in for a treat.
