After a pure-Country premiere during her Grand Ole Opry debut last Friday (11/12), MacKenzie Porter’s infectious new anthem, “Pickup,” is out now and available everywhere. 

Co-written by the emerging Big Loud Records star with Will Bundy and Lydia Vaughan, the track finds Porter looking in the romantic rearview: flashing back to a bench seat and her first love, wondering what might have been if not for a fork in the road.

Produced by Joey Moi, the song features a bright, open-road feel, a rush of lush vocals and a hooky, modern-timeless presentation, as her mind and heart race with full-throttle nostalgia.

"I can honestly say I’ve never been more excited to release a song," says Porter. "Since the day we wrote 'Pickup,' it has felt like a really special song. The writers room had something magical that day and I hope you sing this at the top of your lungs about the person you miss the most."





As her career ignites, Porter also made her late-night TV debut on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! November 10, performing her hit collaboration with Dustin Lynch“Thinking ‘Bout You.” And she’ll deliver the power duet again with Lynch for the Canadian broadcast debut performance on the CCMA Awards November 29, where the Canadian native is up for four awards – Entertainer of the Year, Female Artist of the Year, PRS Guitars Video of the Year (“Drinkin’ Songs”) and Fans’ Choice.

As “Thinking ‘Bout You” is rising through the Top 5 on at Country radio, Porter is readying to return to the road. She’ll be featured on Jordan Davis’ BUY DIRT TOUR through December before joining Walker Hayes’ FANCY LIKE TOUR next year. 




MacKenzie Porter is a rising Country talent whose sound knows no borders. Signed to Big Loud Records, she is surging now with Dustin Lynch collaboration “Thinking ‘Bout You” at Country radio, plus latest releases “PickUp,” “Unlonely Me,” and “Heaven Heard Me.” The new music follows DRINKIN’ SONGS: THE COLLECTION – an arsenal of two years’ worth of music produced by Joey Moi. 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 Porter’s four 2021 CCMA Awards nominations - Entertainer of the Year, Female Artist of the Year, PRS Guitars Video of the Year (“Drinkin’ Songs”), Fans’ Choice – plus a 2021 JUNO Awards 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 Country artist – with "These Days (Remix)," and joined CMT’s elite Next Women of Country class of 2021. The Pandora 2021 Country Artist to Watch is currently on Jordan Davis’ BUY DIRT TOUR and will join Walker Hayes’ FANCY LIKE TOUR in 2022. She has previously shared the stage with Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Chris Lane, Blake Shelton, Dallas Smith, and co-starred in the Netflix series, Travelers.
