Check out what they have to say.

Also performing tomorrow is Mackenzie Porter and Emily and Mercedes got a chance to talk to her. Mackenzie Porter is a Canadian country singer/songwriter and actress. When asked what it means to perform on the CMA’s Mackenize says, “It means everything. It’s kind of a staple in Nashville if you are an artist, to get to play something like this and the last time I played CMA Fest was probably six years ago and I played some B-side stage and like nobody came to it and the next year I got to play it, we were playing at Nissan Stadium and it’s a pretty cool thing. I’ve really looked forward to it my whole career.”

Mackenzie has released one self-titled album, has four Canada Country number ones with "About You", "These Days", "Seeing Other People", and "Pickup", and she is featured on Dustin Lynch's number one Country Airplay hit "Thinking 'Bout You".
