PORTER MAKES SOME NOISE WITH NEW CAA DEAL
1/23/23

Following the success of 2022's "Pickup," blossoming Big Loud artist MacKenzie Porter has joined Creative Artists Agency's (CAA) roster with representation from Bennett Beckner and Jeff Krones. The Alberta native will continue to be based in Nashville.

"We have been building the perfect team, and it feels complete with Jeff and Bennett joining the family," Porter said. "We will have new music coming this year, and I can't wait to work alongside CAA to bring it to the stage."

Porter has already shared the stage with a slew of notable country artists, including Blake Shelton, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts and her labelmate, Dallas Smith.

Porter scored a hit in 2020 as a guest on the Dustin Lynch single "Thinking 'Bout You," which landed at #1 and stayed there for six weeks. She's the first Canadian woman this century to have five #1 songs at Canadian country radio and only woman since Shania Twain to land three consecutive #1s at Canadian country radio. She also earned a crossover Top 10 at Canadian pop radio, a first since 2003 for a Canadian country artist.
