The 37-year-old singer's "Black Like Me" song has been nominated for Best Country Solo Performance, making her the first Black female artist to earn a solo nomination in a country music category.
In 1976, The Pointer Sisters' song, "Live Your Life Before You Die," was nominated for Best Country Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group at the GRAMMYs but never a solo Black female singer until Guyton.
On Wednesday, Guyton shared an emotional video of the moment she found out about her historic nominations. "Honestly still can't believe this happened yesterday," she captioned the clip.
"I haven't been able to put into words the emotions I feel right now. I have been hitting the pavement for so long just trying to get an opportunity to be heard. And now here I am nominated for a Grammy!" Guyton continued. "I feel seen. I feel heard. I am a living testament that you should never give up on yourself. You never know what God has waiting for you around the corner."
"This Grammy nomination is for every black girl that felt unseen. That felt unheard. That felt unloved. That felt like they weren’t enough. That felt unpretty. That felt shoved in a corner and completely unconsidered. This is for them."
