MacKenzie Porter Inks With CAA [Exclusive]
Big Loud singer-songwriter MacKenzie Porter has inked with CAA for booking representation.
The Canadian-born and Nashville-based artist made quite the introduction in 2021 with her six-week No. 1 with Dustin Lynch, “Thinking ‘Bout You,” and followed it up with an impressive 2022 that saw her garner award nominations, a CMA Fest main stage debut, a rigorous touring schedule and more.
Porter has continued to release standout hits, such as “Pickup,” “About You” and “These Days,” with her full-length, debut album slated for release early this year. She made her Grand Ole Opry debut in late 2021 and was the only female nominated for Favorite Country Song at the 2022 American Music Awards.
Named the 2022 MusicRow Discovery Artist of the Year this past summer, Porter has also earned seven CCMA nominations in just the last two years alone, including a nod for Entertainer of the Year.
A member of CMT’s Next Women of Country Class of 2021, Porter previously starred as an actress in cult-followed sci-fi television series Travelers, and has toured the globe opening for Blake Shelton, Kenny Chesney, Walker Hayes, Jordan Davis, Brad Paisley, Chris Lane, Dallas Smith and Rascal Flatts.
“I am so excited to call CAA my new home,” shares Porter. “We have been building the perfect team, and it feels complete with Jeff [Krones] and Bennett [Beckner] joining the family. We will have new music coming this year, and I can’t wait to work alongside CAA to bring it to the stage!”
