Guyton sought to unify the crowd with her poignant track about American pride with her band in tow. “We got the same stars, the same stripes / Just wanna live that good life /Ain’t we all, ain’t we all American,” she belted alongside her back-up singers. The crowd waved their hands back and forth as Guyton powered through the Remember Her Name standout.
In an interview with Apple Music earlier this year, Guyton recalled writing “All American” when she was on the brink of giving birth. “I also wrote ‘All American’ in the pandemic while very, very pregnant,” she said. “And the funny story about that is, when I tried to record the song if I ate, I couldn’t sing because I had no room left. My baby was taking over. So, I would have to come back another day when I didn’t have any food in my stomach to be able to record it.”
This month, Guyton also performed “Love My Hair” at the 55th annual CMAs.
