Mickey Guyton’s powerful national anthem performance praised by country music stars: ‘Smashed it’

Mickey Guyton‘s stunning rendition of the national anthem has her fellow country music stars in awe.

Guyton, donning a long-sleeved blue dress, wowed with her performance at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California on Sunday. The stadium is the home of the Los Angeles Rams, who is facing off against the Cincinnati Bengals for the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Guyton made history as the first Black woman to earn a Grammy nomination in a country category and first Black solo woman to host the ACM Awards. She’s a four-time Grammy nominee who is known for her hit song “Black Like Me.”
