Mickey Guyton highlights some of the strongest, most-fearless women on the planet in the new video for “Without a Net,” showcasing the stuntwomen of your favorite movies.
Written by Grammy winner Diane Warren about risking it all for what you love, the dramatic country-pop anthem finds Guyton’s angelic vocal soaring like a trapeze artist, and it’s featured in the new documentary, Stuntwomen: The Untold Hollywood Story.
That film tells the tale of women who perform some of Hollywood’s most dangerous action-sequence stunts, and Guyton’s clip offers a preview. Directed by Gabriel Gely, it finds the artist singing from the comfort of a studio loft, but her co-stars don’t have that luxury. They spend their time in grueling training as they prepare to put their bodies on the line — all for the perfect on-camera thrill — showing just how badass stuntwomen need to be.
“So excited about ‘Without A Net,’” Warren shared. “I can’t think of a better singer for this song than Mickey Guyton, an artist who is all about going beyond all limits.”
Guyton recently made history as the first black female solo artist to earn a Grammy nomination in a Best Country Solo Performance category, earning the nod for her acclaimed “Black Like Me.” Meanwhile, she is also waiting on another first — the birth of her first child — and was recently announced as a performer on the upcoming Rose Parade New Year Celebration, taking place January 1 on ABC, Hallmark Channel, KTLA, NBC, RFD-TV and Univision at 8 a.m. PT.
