MacKenzie Porter Kicks Off Her First Canadian Headline Tour Tonight in Toronto
Toronto, ON (November, 3rd, 2023) - On the rise country chart-topper MacKenzie Porter joins forces with multi-platinum artist and producer Elijah Woods for the new version of Wood's fan favourite ode to love ‘’Last Girl (ft. MacKenzie Porter)'' out now! Originally featured on Woods' Bright Orange Everglow EP, he enlists Porter's distinct country pop shimmer to pair with his dreamy, synth-pop vocals, creating a perfect complement on the reimagined, cross-genre love son.
‘’I'm such a fan of Elijah's music and when he brought me this song, I knew I had to be a part of it,'' Porter shares. ‘’It's the perfect mix of honest country lyricism and dreamy-pop. I'm so excited to collaborate with another incredible Canadian artist.''
‘’As soon as I heard MacKenzie's vocals I knew she would be perfect for ‘’Last Girl.'' ‘’It was written with a blend of easy-listening pop and country undertones, ‘’ says Woods. ‘’The song lends itself perfectly to a duet, and I couldn't be happier on how it turned out.''

Most recently winning Musical Collaboration of the Year at the 2023 CCMA awards, Porter continues to be a trailblazer in her field.
