Rising to international acclaim with a distinct country-pop shimmer reminiscent of iconic predecessor Shania Twain, Canada-born and Nashville-based MacKenzie Porter‘s sound knows no borders. Making an introductory statement with her critically acclaimed, chart-dominating, six-week U.S. #1 Dustin Lynch duet “Thinking ‘Bout You,” Porter now returns with lightning-like summer jam “Chasing Tornadoes,” teasing what’s to come on her full-length Big Loud Records debut due later this year. Making her mark with standout hits such as “Pickup,” which earned her a 2023 CMT Music Awards nomination for Breakthrough Female Video of the Year, and best-known head-bobber “These Days,” her “mesmerizing vocals and hook-driven songs” (Billboard) continue to spark headline-worthy moments and accolades. Standing alone as the only female in her category nominated for Favorite Country Song at the 2022 American Music Awards, the 2023 MusicRowDiscovery Artist of the Year has additionally earned seven CCMA nominations, including a nod for Entertainer of the Year. A trailblazer in her field, Porter is the first female this century to have five #1 songs at Canadian country radio, claiming her first crossover Top 10 at Canadian pop radio with “These Days (Remix)” – the first since 2003 for a Canadian country artist. The triple threat is a member of CMT’s elite Next Women of Country Class of 2021, previously starred as an actress in cult-followed sci-fi television series Travelers, and has toured the globe opening for Blake Shelton, Kenny Chesney, Walker Hayes, Jordan Davis, Brad Paisley, Chris Lane, Dallas Smith, and Rascal Flatts.
