Country music singer-songwriter Makenzie Phipps is excited to announce the release of her latest single “A Little Of Both.” Premiered by Taste of Country, “A Little Of Both” highlights life’s ups and downs while using opposites to explain that sometimes you don’t have to choose, but rather enjoy both! “Jack Daniels or Jim Beam, Mick Jagger or McCartney, I’ll have a little of both” sums up the single while “I roll with the punches, it gets me where I’m going” truly paints the portrait that you can’t control life, but you can enjoy the ride! “A Little Of Both” was written by Vanessa Olivarez, Elizabeth Elkins, and Sonia Leigh, and produced by Sal Oliveri (Chris Stapleton, Garth Brooks, Keith Urban).

“I want to thank Taste of Country for premiering my new single,” shares Phipps. “I had so much fun getting to chat about everything I have going on and I appreciate all y’all are doing for me. I know so many people out there will relate to this song in their own way and I can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks about it!”
As part of a recent meeting with legendary singer-songwriter Lacy J. Dalton, Phipps recorded an acoustic video of Lacy J.
