HOSTS MACKENZIE PORTER + FRIENDS PRESENT: COUNTRY VS. CANCER BENEFITING THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY MONDAY (11/20)
NASHVILLE, TENN. – Rising Big Loud Records triple threat MacKenzie Porter brings her country-pop shimmer to all-new, mid-tempo bop “Bet You Break My Heart,” out now. Written by Mark Holman (Cole Swindell’s “Single Saturday Night,” FGL’s “Simple”), Chris Tompkins (Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats” + “Blown Away”), and Travis Wood (Morgan Wallen’s “’98 Braves,” Jake Owen’s “Up There Down Here”) and produced by career-long collaborator Joey Moi, Porter’s show-stopping vocals narrate the internal tug-of-war of falling in love with a heartbreaker.
“Heartbreak is something we all experience,” shares Porter. “We’ve all fallen for someone or something knowing it would probably end up hurting us. Taking that risk is both the most exciting and scary feeling, and I love that this song is able to put words to the back in forth you have in your head throughout those types of relationships.”
Putting on full display “Porter’s girl-next-door vocals” (Billboard), the head-bobber dives heart-first into a relationship, fully anticipating the pain that might come when it inevitably ends. Porter bets:
Bet you break you my heart
Bet you wreck my summer
Get me falling like a phone call to Momma think I love him
Bet them goodbye lights on that white 4Runner
Fading off in the dark gonna hit me like a Louisville slugger
You’re trouble for me, boy I can already see it
Like it’s written in the neon stars
I bet you break my heart
I bet you break my heart
Listen to “Bet You Break My Heart” here.
Having just wrapped her first-ever Canadian headline tour, Porter returns to Nashville, Tenn. on Monday (11/20) to host MacKenzie Porter + Friends Present: Country vs. Cancer, a concert benefitting the American Cancer Society featuring performances by Porter, Dustin Lynch, Nate Smith, Walker Hayes, Lily Rose, and Alana Springsteen. Tickets available here.
