Mickey Guyton is one of Nashville’s up and coming female singer + songwriters making a change. Throughout the duration of 2020, Guyton has been drawing attention to different causes, and her third single of the year “Heaven Down Here” asks for prayer and a little bit more love that we are all in need of.
Written by Guyton, Gordie Sampson, Josh Kear, and Hillary Lindsey, “Heaven Down Here” asks for help for our current state of the world. It’s structured as a conversation with somebody of higher power full of prayer and glimpses of hope and love. She sings: “If you got a little love // Left in your back pocket // Rain it down like pennies // In this wishing well of tears // I know that you’re busy // But if you could hear me talking // We could use a little more heaven down here // We could use a little more heaven down here.”
Guyton shared on her Instagram page, “I wrote ”Heaven Down Here” during our lockdown and after seeing so much hate in this world. To be hated for something you cannot control is still so unfathomable to me. I wrote this asking God that if he has any love left up there to rain it down on us because we need it. I hope you can hear my heart and I hope you can find healing in this song.”
“Heaven Down Here” follows the singer + songwriter’s “What Are You Gonna Tell Her;” a call to action song recognizing the injustices of being a woman. It also follows Guyton’s single “Black Like Me” released in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd. The songstress has been very vocal on her social media platforms encouraging change and calling on fans to do the same.
