In September, Mickey Guyton released her EP Bridges, filled with powerful, vulnerable songs including “Black Like Me” and “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?.” That same month, Guyton offered a stunning rendition of “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?” at the Academy of Country Music Awards, and last week, she earned a shoutout from CMA’s Female Vocalist of the Year winner Maren Morris.

Tomorrow (Nov. 19), Guyton will perform “Salt,” another track from her EP Bridges, on The Kelly Clarkson Show. Guyton co-wrote all six tracks on her EP, including “Salt,” which she penned with Jesse Frasure, Cary Barlowe, and Steven Lee Olsen.

On the swirling, smoldering track, Guyton tries to warn the listener of a woman who will do whatever it takes to get ahead.

Yeah, she’ll break your heart Like it doesn’t matter/Yeah, she’ll play the part Just to climb the ladder/She’s got you blind but I see it all/You think you’re getting sugar But boy, you’re getting salt.

“We’re in an industry where there are beautiful women that work with producers that use their bodies and their beauty to get opportunities. That song’s just like, ‘Be careful, that is a real thing.’” Guyton previously told MusicRow Magazine about the track.

Guyton is also set to perform a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love” on tonight’s “Stand Up For Heroes” event, airing at 9 p.m. ET on ABC News Live, TikTok, Facebook Watch, Cheddar, Twitch and Armed Forces Network.
