Creator Selection On
August 18, 2020

Country music singer, Mickey Guyton, is set to release a new album with Universal Music Group Nashville in the summer of 2020! Included in her new album is the hit single, "What Are You Gonna Tell Her?

Mickey released the song “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?” so girls and women will find the strength, hope, and love to continue to be strong and follow their truth. Her hope for the song is, “if my message can reach one person who doesn’t feel that they have the support and gives them the inspiration to reach for their dreams, that is my greatest wish”.

Create inspiring videos that capture your interpretation of Mickey Guyton's new song, "What Are You Gonna Tell Her?"

1 Selected Creator will be chosen and will receive $4,000 for their work. 2 Finalists will be chosen and receive $3,000 for their works.

This opportunity is open globally (except for citizens, nationals, or legal residents of Brazil, Crimea, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria) to those who are at least 18 years of age and the age of majority at the time of entry.

About Mickey Guyton

In 2015 she released her self-titled EP featuring her debut single “Better Than You Left Me,” which she co-wrote with Jennifer Hanson, Jenn Schott and Nathan Chapman. The following year she was nominated for her for first Academy of Country Music Award for New Female Vocalist. Mickey has been focused on her songwriting the last few years and will release an album this summer.
