As I’ve mentioned before, there aren’t a lot of women who are able to make a living in country music these days, thanks to the closed doors of terrestrial country radio.

That was the inspiration on the day I wrote “Sister” with Capitol artist Mickey Guyton and track producer Nathan Spicer. Mickey has now recorded it with producer Forest Glen Whitehead and released it as a single, and she just revealed a beautiful video for it (below) in which she celebrates sisterhood with women of a variety of races, sizes and gender identities. I think it’s just beautiful!
