Candace Mycale "Mickey" Guyton (born June 17, 1983) is an American country music singer and songwriter. She is signed to Capitol Nashville, and has released her debut single, "Better Than You Left Me".[1]

Musical career

Candace Mycale "Mickey" Guyton was born on June 17,[2] 1983 in Arlington, Texas,[3][4] to parents Phyllis Ann Roddy and Michael Eugene Guyton.[5][6][7] She said that she was inspired to begin a singing career after, at the age of eight, she saw LeAnn Rimes sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the start of a Texas Rangers game.[6] In 2011, Guyton signed with Capitol Nashville and recorded an extended play, Unbreakable three years later.[3] Guyton auditioned for American Idol and was cut just before the live shows for the top 24.[8] She was only seen for a few seconds during her final singing performance during the auditions.[8]

Guyton wrote her debut single, "Better Than You Left Me", with Jennifer Hanson and Jenn Schott. She debuted the single at the Grand Ole Opry on January 10, 2015, and released both it and the music video two days later.[9][10]

The song debuted at number 56 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart dated for the week ending January 24, 2015.[11] An article in The Guardian made note of the song's early success on the charts, particularly in relation to Guyton's being an African American female in a genre dominated by white men.[12] In 2016, she was nominated for the New Female Vocalist of the Year honour at the ACM awards.[13]
