Somebody Else Will

Album: Mickey Guyton (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • The second single from Mickey Guyton's self-titled EP, this was penned by Luke Laird, Ashley Gorley and Hillary Lindsey.

    Guyton told Billboard magazine that despite the fact she didn't write the tune herself, it's an easy message for her to convey. "Most songs that I've cut or written are my personal experiences. So I think of those things when I'm singing," she explained. "I try to reflect that in the way I sing certain parts - whether it's a soft song or a certain crack in my voice, I just try to put myself into it and sing it. I don't try to do too much flashy stuff vocally. I just try to do what's in my heart at the time."
