As she prepares for the September 11 release of her Bridges EP, rising country artist Mickey Guyton has the song “Without A Net” released today (4) from the soundtrack of the documentary Stuntwomen: The Untold Hollywood Story.
The track is a new original composition by prolific hit writer and Academy Award nominee Diane Warren. The film, directed by April Wright, is the untold story unsung professional stuntwomen in some of Hollywood’s biggest films, and their struggles both on and off screen. The score has been written by Nora Kroll-Rosenbaum and Bonnie Greenberg is executive music producer.
Stuntwomen: The Untold Hollywood Story is narrated by Michelle Rodriquez and based on the 2015 novel by Mollie Gregory, which described the lives of stuntwomen from the days of silent movies (notably the 1914 movie The Perils of Pauline) all the way to modern-day blockbusters. The film will be released digitally this fall by Shout! Studios.
A statement from the film’s producers says: “These unheralded heroines are the generations of stuntwomen who risked their lives in front of the camera, while behind it they fought for equal rights with male stunt performers, battled sexism and harassment, sustained life-threatening injuries and returned to the fray after each battle.”
Guyton, from Arlington, Texas, has been described by NPR as “a poised and galvanizing country-pop conscience.” On July 24, she released the typically heartfelt track “Heaven Down Here,” which will feature on the EP and which she wrote with Gordie Sampson, Josh Kear and Hillary Lindsey.
The six-track release will also include her much-admired social conscience commentary of 2019, “Black Like Me.” Guyton is also due to perform “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?”, another of her signature songs from the new EP, on the ACM Awards show on September 16, from the Grand Ole Opry, broadcast by CBS.
