Mackenzie Porter Sings “About You” All the Way to #1
Sarah Burke here from SiriusXM Country. I’m getting a little misty-eyed as I write this because this week, another one of our emerging Canadian Country women saw her song go to #1. Better yet, this conversation about females and #1’s is becoming a little more regular, one day, one month, and one year at time. Mackenzie Porter became the 7th Canadian female artist to earn a Billboard Country #1 in 25 years this week with her song ‘About You.’ Wasn’t it just yesterday I wrote you a little something to introduce you to her music?

Congratulations, Porter.
