Gill, Guyton team up for "American Underdog" soundtrack song

Friday, December 17, 2021 – Vince Gill and Mickey Guyton recorded a song together for a movie.

The pair said they cut "Love Changes Everything" for the movie "American Underdog."

The movie, which comes out on Christmas, is the inspirational story of NFL Hall of Fame quarterback, two-time MVP and Super Bowl Champ Kurt Warner. Five years before he played in the NFL, he was stocking shelves at a supermarket. The film stars Zachary Levi as Warner, Anna Paquin as his wife, Brenda, and Dennis Quaid as St. Louis Rams coach Dick Vermeil.

"Loved being a part of this song," Guyton said on social media.

Gill takes lead vocals on the song with Guyton backing him on harmonies throughout.

"I remember the first time I heard Mickey sing at an industry event," Gill said in a Billboard interview. "I went and introduced myself and told her that someday we'd sing together because I really loved her voice. Finally, that has come true. This great Tom Douglas song is better because of her being a part of it."

Guyton returned the compliment in the Billboard interview. "I've always been such a big fan of Vince's. Beyond his incredible voice and musicianship, no one has a bigger heart for giving back to the community and lifting people up like Vince. For him to ask me to be on 'Love Changes Everything' and to get to work with him on such a beautiful song was just so special."

And there is quite a lot that works on his first solo album since 2011's "Guitar Slinger." (He did release the excellent "Bakersfield" with Paul Franklin in 2013). Gill prefers a more soulful approach, ...
CD review - Mickey Guyton Mickey Guyton, a Dallas native, follows in the footsteps of female singers like Carrie Underwood and Martina McBride on this 4-song, 16-minute CD that's probably meant as more of an introduction for those who never heard her 2014 very much under the radar EP, "Unbreakable." That translates into a powerful set of vocal chords that dominate. Guyton brings a sense of authenticity to the opening "Why Baby Why." She doesn't need to go full-blown vocally all the time, but ...
CD review - Guitar Slinger It's hard to believe, considering what Vince Gill has accomplished over the past three decades, but the triple threat singer-songwriter-guitar picker may be in the most creative, productive stretch of his lengthy, remarkable career. Five years after Gill's Grammy-winning 4-album 43-song box set "These Days," his latest 12-song release again finds Gill tapping every ounce of his immense talents. The title song sums up his reputation as an ax man worthy of playing Eric ...
