Mickey Guyton, a country singer, recently joined METALLICA on stage in New York at Global Citizen Festival for a performance of “Nothing Else Matters.”
“Finally a real singer!” James Hetfield remarked on Guyton’s appearance, before the singer belted through the song’s verses and delivered a riveting duet with James Hetfield on the track’s chorus. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below.
The country singer previously covered the classic power ballad on the 2021 tribute album The Metallica Blacklist, which celebrated the 30-year anniversary of METALLICA’s classic 1991 self-titled record.
Also appearing at the event were Charlie Puth, JONAS BROTHERS, MÅNESKIN, Mariah Carey and Rosalía.
