Alberta Pride Artist: Mackenzie Porter
From Medicine Hat, Alberta.
At age four, Porter began studying classical piano, violin and voice. Beyond lessons, she also performed regularly with her siblings and cousins in the family’s band. After relocating to Vancouver in her late teens she fell deeply in love with songwriting and recording her own material.
In 2013, she released her self-titled debut album. Over the next three years, she garnered nominations for prestigious Canadian music awards including a JUNO for Country Album of the Year and the CCMA Award for Female Artist of the Year three years running.
Over time she’s also toured extensively on her own and in support of artists such as Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts and Blake Shelton. Additionally, in 2016, Porter was featured on Chris Lane’s ‘Circles’ from his Top 10 US Country record, Girl Troubles.
