Black Country artist Mickey Guyton made GRAMMYs history Sunday evening as the first black woman to be nominated for a GRAMMY in a Country Music category with song “Black Like Me.”
Worth noting sis did this WITHOUT the support of Country Radio.
The nomination comes five years after the 37-year-old country singer released her debut single, “Better Than You Left Me” which was dropped from air play after only a few radio spins.
Dream team! I couldn’t have done this without every single person on that stage. It was so special to be able to perform “Black Like Me”, a song that is so so special to me. Sharing this moment together is something I will never forget. #GRAMMYs pic.twitter.com/3A2NzrNiFT

Just before performing her autobiographical single from her new EP Bridges, Guyton sat down with TETRIS from Billboard to discuss her history making night.
