“I showed up to a write one day saying I wanted to write the country version of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” and next thing you know we started ad-libbing and ended up re-writing the ‘80s classic.. but with a whole lot of country flair.” – Mackenzie Carpenter

ABOUT MACKENZIE CARPENTER
Hailing from the small town of HULL, GA, MACKENZIE CARPENTER is the spunky blonde girl-next-door thatfell in love with music as a kid, writing alongside her brothers and singing in church.
Years later, the outspoken singer-songwriter is breaking the mold for small-town women by writing and singing her truth, armed with the knowledge that everyone has a little bit of “HOT MESS” in them, no matter how shiny the book cover may seem.
With an upbringing consisting of a rowdy support system, back porch hootenannies and juicy drama that feeds any plot, the affable and kind CARPENTER also embraces the crazy and “TACKY” aspects that make life more interesting.
Fans are loving SIRIUSXM HIGHWAY FIND, “CAN’T NOBODY” TIKTOK VIRAL, “HUNTIN’ SEASON,” “VULNERABLE” “JESUS I’M JEALOUS” and her latest GIRL’S GIRL ANTHEM, “DON’T MESS WITH EXS.”
Now, Mackenzie has added new tune “THROW YOU BACK” to the mix on her recently released SELF-TITLED debut EP, putting her cheeky yet nuanced songwriting ability on full display across the FIVE songs.
Since signing her first record deal with the VALORY MUSIC CO. last year, mackenzie is recongnized in country music as an artist to watch, being included in several spotlight programs including the CMT NEXT WOMEN OF COUNTRY CLASS OF 2023.
Mackenzie recently wrapped DANIELLE BRADBERY’S “A Special Place Tour” and CONNER SMITH’S “If I Went To College Tour”, having already opened for MIRANDA LAMBERT, JAKE OWEN, PARKER MCCOLLUM, CRAIG CAMPBELL, AND RYAN HURD.
