Big Loud Records’ MacKenzie Porter is serving up another heartbreak anthem with all-new release “Drinkin’ Songs,” available across streaming platforms and digital retailers today.

Written by Lucas Nord and Griffen Palmer plus produced by Joey Moi with co-production by Jacob Durrett, “Drinkin’ Songs” channels the transporting moment of hearing the soundtrack to an old relationship post breakup. Reminiscing on everything the verses and choruses used to represent, Porter belts the upbeat anthem as a celebration of getting over him, listening to the addictive tune over and over with changed significance as its now just another one of her “drinkin’ songs.” 

“You know when you’re dating someone, and you have ‘your song.’ The one you pick together to be the theme song of your relationship.... the one where every lyric seems to be singing about your love.... this is about THAT song.... after you breakup,” shares Porter. “It’s the one that now magically seems to come on the radio every single time you get into the car just to remind you what was once yours. The song that used to make you feel so secure and whole – but now it’s just another one of your drinkin’ songs.”




Adding to release day, Porter is also dropping a colorful, nostalgic lyric video to pair with the track – watch it here

After making history as the only female other than Shania Twain to have three back-to-back #1 singles at Canadian Country radio, Porter took the U.S. by storm launching her debut single “These Days” with style. Whiskey Riff is “instantly obsessed” while Billboard notes that “Nashville will soon take notice of her mesmerizing vocals and hook-driven songs.” Get to know her better by watching “This is MacKenzie Porter” here.

Singer-songwriter MacKenzie Porter is a rising Country talent whose sound knows no borders. Signed to Big Loud Records, Porter is surging now with an arsenal of new music produced by Joey Moi (Jake Owen, Morgan Wallen). Since moving to Nashville in 2014 from her native Canada, she’s developed a radiant Country style which threads the needle between traditional heart and modern energy, often collaborating with songwriting mainstays like Nicolle Galyon, Craig Wiseman, Natalie Hemby, and Tommy English. Her "mesmerizing vocals and hook-driven songs" (Billboard) have sparked a list of headline-worthy accolades, including multiple Canadian Country Music Award nominations — 4X Female Artist of the YearSongwriter of the Year and Fans' Choice — as well as a previous JUNO Award nomination for Country Album of the Year. Making her mark, Porter became the first female artist to have three back-to-back #1 singles at Canadian Country radio in 22 years with “About You,” “These Days” and “Seeing Other People” in early 2020, following Shania Twain in 1998. Porter also earned her first crossover Top 10 at Canadian pop-radio — a first since 2003 for a Canadian female country artist — with "These Days (Remix)." She’s toured extensively on her own, sharing the stage with Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Chris Lane, Blake Shelton and Dallas Smith, and also co-starred in the Netflix series, "Travelers."
