Country singer Mickey Guyton was joined by Keith Urban on piano to make history at the 55th ACM Awards. Her live performance of “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?” was the first time in the show’s history that a Black woman performed.
She spoke to ET Canada about the honor, noting “if you see it, you can be it,” and she hopes to inspire others. It turns out she was surprised to learn she was the first!
Earlier this year, she released “Black Like Me,” about her experiences growing up in a small town.
