As she’s getting ready to co-host this weekend’s ACM Awards with Keith Urban, Mickey Guyton made a stop by CBS This Morning to talk with Gayle King.
After the interview, Mickey said “Thank you Gayle King! Just 2 years ago I was ready to let this all go. I’m so glad I didn’t. It really goes to show when you’re at your lowest is when you can have your biggest breakthrough.”
In the emotional interview Mickey admits that “I try to act like I’m strong…but, I’m not always strong.”
Mickey also shares that while she received negative messages from people about her song “Black Like Me”, she says “I got so much support for this song…from all walks of life. There’s so many loving messages from people that showed me that I was doing the right thing.”
Mickey added “As weak as I felt, I still feel strong because I know that I’m standing up for people that don’t necessarily have that ability”
