Watch Mickey Guyton, BRELAND, and Gladys Knight Perform at the CMT Music Awards

Gladys Knight graced the CMT Music Awards in Nashville, performing “Friendship Train” with Mickey Guyton and BRELAND. After Guyton and BRELAND performed “Cross Country” as a duet, Ms. Knight came out and sang the song of inclusion and tolerance. Guyton is an innovator in the country music space, blending elements of pop and R&B into her twang. This year, she became the first solo Black woman nominated for a country Grammy. Guyton has also spoken out publicly in favor of creating a safer country industry for people of color. When Morgan Wallen was caught saying the N-word in a video, Guyton tweeted “How many passes will you continue to give? Asking for a friend. No one deserves to be canceled [but] this is unacceptable.” Guyton was nominated for multiple CMT Music Awards, including Female Video of the Year and Breakthrough Video of the Year. She also presented Linda Martell, the first Black woman to perform solo at the Grand Ole Opry, with the CMT Equal Play Award.

Mickey Guyton Teams Up With Breland and Gladys Knight on CMT Awards

Mickey Guyton pulled double duty on the 2021 CMT Music Awards Wednesday night (June 9), delivering a tag-team collaboration with Breland and Gladys Knight. Starting off with country riser Breland, Guyton sang along with the hip-hop influenced newcomer’s “Cross Country,” an inspiring anthem about a search to find yourself. Matching Breland’s soaring vocal with a shimmering verse of her own (and a shimmering gown), Guyton and her partner brought the good vibes up — and then Knight knocked them out of the park. The soul diva took Breland’s place and led a smiling, country-funk rendition of “Friendship Train,” letting the good times roll. All three then finished the timely moment of togetherness off, with the CMT Awards’ live audience roaring in approval.
