Every country fan and music connoisseur knows that Mickey Guyton is the next big thing in country music. Apparently the news spread to Maroon 5 frontrunner, Adam Levine, who invited Mickey to join them on the band’s new song “Middle Ground.” The song comes after Levine and his wife Behati Prinsloo went through a difficult time last year. The lyrics seem to describe the couple’s journey to repairing their relationship and finding “Middle Ground.” (Prinsloo joins Maroon 5 for the music video.)
“Oh, sisters and brothers are picking sides
And both of our mothers are terrified

And I’m crying out to an empty sky,” Levine and Guyton sing in unison on the track.
Originally released on May 19, the new version featuring Mickey Guyton dropped on August 11. After the song’s release Maroon 5 invited Guyton to join them on stage for the last night of their Las Vegas residency at Dolby Love at Park MGM. “One week of ‘Middle Ground’ 🙏🏾 I’ve had a lot of pinch me moments recently and this is definitely one of them. I am so grateful to @maroon5 for not only letting me be a part of this beautiful songs but for having me out to sing it with you in Vegas. Feeling so blessed,” Guyton captioned her post of photos from the show on Instagram.
Aside from her collaboration with Maroon 5, Guyton has released two singles this year: “Home Movies” ft. Lukas Graham and “Nothing Compares to You” ft. Kane Brown. Similarly to Maroon 5, she hasn’t released a full album since her 2021 album titled Remember Her Name.
