Courtney Patton is a storyteller. She’s also a mother, a wife, a producer, a singer, a songwriter, a tour-van driver, and a musician- as well as a world-traveler when she’s out on tour throughout the continental U.S., Canada, and Europe. But to anyone lucky enough to be sitting in the audience while listening to her expansive Texas twang belt out her version of deep and soulful country music, she’s a storyteller. In a musical era in which clichés and bravado are mistaken for bold noteworthiness, there is something far braver in peeling back highly personal and emotional open-book songs and delivering them with sensitivity and sentiment. Patton does just that. She is the consummate storyteller in her music. Heartache isn’t just described, it is tangibly felt. Following her previous solo albums, Triggering a Flood (2013) and So This Is Life (2015), and her acoustic collaborative project with her husband and fellow Texas troubadour Jason Eady, Something Together, (2017), Patton has drawn on true life day-to-day autobiographical life experiences and released her third album, What It’s Like To Fly Alone, earlier this year. What It’s Like To Fly Alone debuted as high at #4 on the iTunes country chart and made a mark across four different Billboard album charts (including a Top 20 mark on their Americana Albums Sales chart). Along with her exceptional acoustic shows, Courtney and friends will present another captivating and riveting specialty show presentation at The 35th annual MusicFest plus the new “Married to Music” performance in the Grand Ballroom.
