Mickey Guyton – “Heaven Down Here”

I swear it feels like Mickey Guyton is the only mainstream country artist speaking out these days. Black squares in solidarity are fine, but actionable steps are crucial now. On the heels of her stirring and outstanding “Black Like Me,” she returns with the equally powerful “Heaven Down Here,” on which she sends up a prayer.

She attempts to reconcile her faith and the ongoing brutality against Black people, as well as a presidency that cares so little about human life. “Hey God, I know I don’t hit you up that often / But the world is turning upside now,” she sings. “I swear it feels like all we got is problems / And there’s so many, I’m losing count.”

Listen to “Heaven Down Here” below.
