Pregnant Mickey Guyton Cradles Baby Bump, Performs with Host Keith Urban at ACM Awards 2020

Mickey Guyton puts her baby bump on display while performing at the 2020 Academy of Country Music Awards, which aired on Wednesday (September 16).

The 37-year-old pregnant country singer performed her song “What Are You Gonna Tell Her” at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn.

Mickey was accompanied by the show’s host Keith Urban, who played the piano while she sang.

“This song is a call to action,” Mickey previously told CMT about the song. “We are all so obviously very much so aware of the problems with the lack of women being played on country radio and just getting played period in country music and getting signed, whether it’s publishers or anything. It’s a really, really hard position to be in. And I’ve been dealing with so many issues as being a woman for so long and I wanted to write about it.”

Mickey and her husband Grant Savoy are currently expecting their first child together!
