Mickey Guyton has been gaining traction with her song, “Lay It On Me” from her debut album, Remember Her Name.
The fifth track on Remember Her Name, released in September of 2021, “Lay It On Me” was inspired by Guyton’s husband, Grant Savoy. The emotional song was written by Guyton, Jaden Michaels and Gavin Slate. Slate also produced the track alongside Karen Kosowski.
“I want your good, your bad, your ugly / I want the truth and all your lies / I want your perfectly imperfect / Lay it on me tonight,” Guyton sings on the chorus.
Guyton shared a sweet tribute to her husband, Savoy, via her Instagram page when her album was released. Guyton posted a reel using “Lay It On Me” as the audio. In the reel, Guyton explained that she wrote the song for her husband because he “sacrificed a lot to help [her] pursue a career in country music.”
“I wrote ‘Lay It On Me’ for my husband,” Guyton captioned her reel. “This song is dedicated to those of us who are lucky to have people in our lives that support our dreams. Relationships aren’t always perfect, but we can lean on each other to get through the hard times. [red heart emoji] Listen now – link in bio.”
In addition, Guyton recently shared a throwback video of her recording her vocals for “Lay It On Me” in the studio.
“Throwback to recording vocals for ‘Lay It On Me.’” Guyton said. “@karenkosowski makes me feel like I can do anything. [purple heart emoji]”
Jaden Michaels, one of Guyton’s co-writers, commented on the video, saying, “I love you [emoji] best day writing this with you, I’ll never get over this vocal and hearing it, YOU ARE MAGIC [two red heart emojis]”
Guyton performed “Lay It On Me” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last September.
She will sing the national anthem at Super Bowl LVI on Feb. 13 at SoFi Stadium in California. Guyton reacted to the news via Twitter, saying she was “shook,” “grateful,” and “praise dancing.” Guyton previously performed the anthem at PBS’ 2021 Memorial Day Concert.
Guyton and her husband, Savoy just celebrated their son, Grayson’s first birthday. She shared a series of family photos to mark the special occasion.
