Artist You Need to Know: Mackenzie Porter

There is so much talent north of the border that us here in the States have no idea about.

Take Mackenzie Porter. She’s been nominated 3 times for CCMA Female Vocalist of the Year, and just earlier in 2019 she earned her first number one song on the Canadian Country Charts with “About You.”

Now living in Nashville, Porter is writing and collaborating with a lot of top names in the industry. She has the perfect mix of country, pop, and traces of R \&B in her music to attract all of us genre-blending lovers out there. The writing of her songs is so relatable, from the brutal honesty that comes from “Cry Baby” to the instant sense of nostalgia (especially us 90’s babies) in “These Days.”

With the voice, and the songs, Mackenzie is deserving to be mentioned in the same breath as Kelsea Ballerini, Carly Pearce, and Maren Morris. With rejuvenation of her music career in 2019, it’s only going to trend upward from here on.
