The following news comes as absolutely no surprise to the team here at Country Music #CMchat. We have been raving over Mickey Guyton and her debut single since we first heard it and, now, it seems as though radio stations nationwide are joining the celebration.
“Better Than You Left Me,” the sole song that placed Mickey on our Country Music #CMchat “15 to Watch in 2015 list,” was added to seventy-nine country radio stations the week of its release. This makes the track the most-added song of the week, also giving Mickey the highest one-week add total for a debut release in Country Aircheck history.
The song was co-written by Mickey, along with Jennifer Hanson, Jenn Schott, and Nathan Chapman, and was released by her record label Capitol Records Nashville. In mentioning her debut single during her first ever Grand Ole Opry performance, Mickey stated:
It’s been such an incredible journey to get to today, and I am so excited to share my first single and video with the world. I can’t thank country radio enough for being so kind to me and accepting of my music.
And accepting her music, they have been, and with good reason. Between Mickey’s incomparable voice, the powerful lyrics, and a bridge that will make you hit rewind to confirm that you really did just hear what you thought you heard, the song deserves to experience record-breaking success across the board.
We can’t wait to see what’s next in Mickey Guyton’s career, as we anticipate it will be a long one filled with ongoing acclaim. Until then, we have “Better Than You Left Me” to keep us occupied; and there is no better way to spend our time listening to music right now.
