Ahead of their upcoming gig at Crossfire, Mackenzie Roark (of 'Mackenzie Roark and The Hotpants') joins Today Radio's Country Road gals Emma and Meredith for a chat about songwriting, traveling Europe and life as a working musician.

Hailing from Richmond, Virginia, singer/songwriter Mackenzie Roark - and her band The Hotpants - are bringing their brilliant fusion of classic country, 70s folk, and raw-edged rock 'n' roll to Crossfire in Luxembourg City on Saturday 3rd, February.

With influences stretching from Loretta Lynn right up to Sheryl Crow, Mackenzie Roark and The Hotpants will be delivering what they describe as "...a performance that's both emotionally evocative and sonically compelling, inviting audiences to sway to the songs, reflect on the stories, and ultimately feel the pulse of genuine, heartfelt music.".

Ahead of the gig, the lovely ladies of Today Radio's Country Roads show sat down with Mackenzie to chat about what makes country music, the ever-evolving subject matters captured within the genre, discuss dream collaborators and how life on the road is as a working musician.
