NASHVILLE, TENN. (August 27, 2021) — Today, Big Loud Records’ riser MacKenzie Porter releases a new Amazon Original cover of Natalie Imbruglia’s “Torn.” As a product of the 90s herself, Porter belts the 1997 cover with a tremendous amount of heart and soul.

“’Torn’ was one of those songs I grew up on,” explains Porter. “I loved it then and I still love it now. It’s timeless. I hope I make Natalie proud.”
