Mackenzie Porter is basking in the glory of earning her very first Billboard Canadian Country Number One hit, with her song“About You”. The chart-topping hit was the first of seven new songs Porter has released since December 2018. “About You” has collected nearly 4,000,000 streams to date on various music platforms and has primed the industry and fans alike for the release of new music from Porter. Porter’s success on the charts makes her the seventh Canadian female artist to reach the number one spot on the Billboard Country Airplay chart in 25 years, and the first female independent artist to do so.
The official music video for “About You” stars Porter and her real-life partner Jake Etheridge.
Porter will celebrate her successful return to country music on Dallas Smith’s and Dean Brody’s highly anticipated Friends Don’t Let Friends Tour Alone Tour this fall, with 26 stops planned across Canada. With five new songs including “Cry Baby” and “These Days” recently added to Porter’s collection, fans can anticipate more new music this fall.
Music has touched my soul since day one. Whether it is performing or sitting down with some of the biggest names in music, I can always be found sharing my profoundly tender affection of music with anyone who will listen. Being a music journalist has allowed me to expand my knowledge of music and interact with some of my biggest childhood heroes. From days of radio broadcasting to sitting back, kicking off my cowboy boots and sharing my adventures with likeminded music fans online has been nothing short of amazing. Canada is full of true musical talent and I look forward to continuing to share my adventures in music with you.
