Guyton’s debut studio album Remember Her Name was released in September 2021 by Capitol Records Nashville. The 16-track offering includes singles like “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?” and “Black Like Me,” as well as a cover of Beyoncé’s “If I Were a Boy.”
The country star joins a long, esteemed list of heavy hitters to have performed the National Anthem at the Super Bowl. Recent performers have included Demi Lovato (2020), Gladys Knight (2019), Pink (2018), Luke Bryan (2017) and Lady Gaga (2016).
