ET interviewed country artist Mickey Guyton about her new music, motherhood, and headlining tour. On being a trailblazer in country music, Guyton says, “People don’t realize [that] when you are considered a trailblazer — which, I didn’t consider myself that, but I guess I am.” Guyton admitted, “You don’t realize getting to these milestones in your life comes with a price.”

The singer pointed out how the “really bad things” she’s had said about her have affected her mental health. “I was just fighting for equality, and that comes with a price when you’re putting yourself out there to try to bring people together and bring light to certain things that are hard in [other] people’s lives.”
