“Women Want to Hear Women With Elaina” Featuring Leah Turner

“Women Want to Hear Women With Elaina” Featuring Leah Turner

Leah Turner has had such an interesting career since moving from California to Nashville in 2012. She is a true example of how finicky the country music industry can be—but her hard work and talent have not gone unnoticed.

While Leah has had many challenges, she’s also had many victories, including releasing her self-titled EP and charting two singles. Leah is one of the hardest working women in Nashville, and I’m thrilled we were able to sit down and chat. You’ll also find out how Leah originally sparked my idea for this podcast. Enjoy!

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
