All over the world, participating Cafes will be hosting Hard Rock Rising live battle events. In February, voting took place at Hard Rock Atlanta's Facebook page, where Courtney was among the top downloaded artists and moved on to the Live Battle Rounds on March 20th. The other artists Courtney competed against that night were Megan Fowler, Three Mile South and The Grind Theory. Courtney came out on top of this Battle Round and will now move on to compete against the other two Battle Round winners on Thursday, April 3rd at 8:00pm EST. Admission is free and part of the judging is based on crowd participation.
For four of the last five summers, Courtney has performed at Tootsie's Orchid Lounge during CMA Fest. This year was no different. Courtney played an hour long set with her band that included originals and some of today's most popular country tunes. Here are two of the covers from Tootsie's: Hunter Hayes' Somebody's Heartbreak and Little Big Town's Pontoon. You can view pictures from the week here.
Courtney recently had the honor of playing one of the most historic venues in Nashville, Tennessee - The Bluebird Cafe. Courtney was invited to play as part of the long running, world wide, Chick Singer Night, which has been running for over 20 years!
