“Country Girls (Just Wanna Have Fun) Remix,” with its contagious melody is readymade for a night out on the town from the pre-game playlist to the GNO montage the next day. Written by Mackenzie, her brother Micah Carpenter, Kyle Clark, Ben Williams and Robert Hazard (“Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”), and produced by Julian Bunetta, the Country take on Cyndi Lauper’s ‘80s classic directly reflects the Georgia-native’s fun-loving and affable personality and ability to turn a phrase. 

“My parents surprised everybody at my wedding with learning the choreography to the song and the whole place erupted into a cheers and dancing—it was a moment I’ll never forget,” said Carpenter. “With the remix, I wanted to just kick it up that much more. I hope it becomes a soundtrack for good times.”

Carpenter is coming off a strong 2023 after being recognized in numerous Artist To Watch programs, making her Grand Ole Opry debut, releasing her self-titled debut EP and marrying the love of her life. With more up her sleeve in 2024, the young talent is coming into her own, aiming to stay top of mind by continuing to cross milestones and put her “great ear for a clever lyric” (Country Swag) on full display in the music she creates. After recently wrapping The Lucky Tour with her “I’m Not Pretty” co-writer and friend, Megan Moroney, Carpenter is currently writing and working on new music.
