In 2012, Guyton received a standing ovation when she performed her song "Better Than You Left Me" at Nashville's Country Radio Seminar, and in 2014, the tune became Guyton's debut single for Liberty, following a fine four-song acoustic EP, Unbreakable. On January 12, 2015, the song debuted on Billboard's Country Airplay chart, and the same month, the music industry bible highlighted Guyton as one of "10 Hot Country Artists to Watch in 2015," declaring "Guyton is quite possibly the best female voice to come along since Carrie Underwood."
"Better Than You Left Me" eventually peaked at 34 on Billboard's Country Airplay. Its follow-up, "Heartbreak Song," went to 45 on the same chart in 2016, but her 2017 single, "Nice Things," didn't chart. In 2019, Guyton released three singles: "Hold On," which was taken from the film Breakthrough, "Sister" and "Crazy." In the spring of 2020, she released "What Are you Gonna Tell Her?" ~ Mark Deming
