Mickey Guyton has nothing to lose. She’s been actively pushing for change in the country music world this year ─ sometimes alone, other times with allies. Now, with her long-awaited new EP, she seeks for connection and a lifeline to truth. The title cut, “Bridges,” doesn’t skimp on reality, rather utilizing it as a way to meet in the middle somehow.
“There’s fire in the streets / People on their knees,” she sings. Her observations are ripped from the headlines, her voice a guiding light, and it’s meant to drive the conversation forward. “What if that space between changed / If we started building bridges?” It’s the question of our lifetime.
