Courtney Patton

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 andEurope.But to anyone lucky enough to be sitting in the audience while listening to herexpansive Texas twang belt out her version of deep and soulful country music, she’s astoryteller.In a musical era in which clichés and bravado are mistaken for bold noteworthiness,there is something far more brave in peelingback highly personal and emotional open-booksongs and delivering them with sensitivity and sentiment. Patton does just that. She is theconsummate storyteller in her music. Heartache isn’t just described, it is tangibly felt.Following her previous soloalbums, Triggering a Flood (2013) and So This Is Life (2015), and heracoustic collaborative project with her husband and fellow Texas troubadour Jason Eady,Something Together, (2017), Patton has drawn on true life day-to-day autobiographical lifeexperiences and released her third album, What It’s Like To Fly Alone, earlier this year.Patton explains the genesis behind the project, “The album is titled after one of its songs,“What It’s Like to Fly Alone”. The title sounds melancholy, but the resolve isn’t. This record isfull of songs about people who have had to “fly alone” in some way, whether through grief,loss, life choices, addiction or love. We have to work through our struggles, choose our owndestiny, just like the characters in each song. We have to make ourselves happy. No one elsecan do that for us. I’ve been down in all of those ways, but I chose happiness. In the end, “flyingalone” is soaring because you pick your path and you find your way.”She’s shared the stage with leading lights of the country-folk scene including Walt Wilkins,Bruce Robison, Jamie Lin Wilson, Cody Jinks, Sunny Sweeney, Brennen Leigh and DrewKennedy. Musicians on her latest project include musical talents such as Chip Bricker, pianoplayer with Gene Watson's highly acclaimed Farewell Party Band, Austin City Limits Hall OfFame member Lloyd Maines on pedal steel, Heather Stalling (wife of Texas troubadour MaxStalling) on fiddle, and Jamie Lin Wilson (The Trishas) and Dan Tyminski (Alison Krauss & UnionStation) on background vocals.What might be most remarkable, however, is that Patton is doing this all independently. Afterhaving Kennedy produce her last album, Patton took the production reins this time around,further cementing this as her most personal work to date.There is no marketing team or musiclabel support. It’s Patton and her spirited passion for the music that has her hands-on overevery part of her career.That makes the fact that What It’s Like To Fly Alone debuted as high at #4 on the i-Tunescountry chart and made a mark across four different Billboard album charts (including aTop 20 mark on their Americana Albums Sales chart) all the more remarkable.But then again, Patton is a storyteller.It only makes sense
