Everything You Wanted to Know About Canadian Country Singer-Songwriter MacKenzie Porter

We first fell in love with the music of Canada-born, Nashville-based country star MacKenzie Porter when she dueted with Dustin Lynch on their hit song, "Thinking 'Bout You," and we haven't looked back since.

And we're clearly not the only ones who are obsessed, because the track was nominated for Favorite Country Song at the 2022 American Music Awards. With a country-pop style that's all her own, and a number of chart-topping hits to her name, MacKenzie is making quite the name for herself as a force to be reckoned with—and here's everything she shared with us about herself as our latest Woman Crush Wednesday.
