Courtney Patton Launches Kickstarter Campaign

Rising singer/songwriter joins legions of stars using platform to fund new recordings.

Courtney Patton has launched a fundraising campaign via the Kickstarter digital crowd sourcing platform to fund her second album, produced by Drew Kennedy.

Patton says, "I'm headed back in to the studio to work on a new album under the guidance of my dear friend, Drew Kennedy, as producer. Drew gets a sound on his albums that I crave - raw, breathable, acoustically driven, stripped down. I aim to make a traditional country album that would make a younger Willie Nelson proud. Think 'Red Headed Stranger' Willie.

"This record will be full of new material, including a few Larry Hooper co-writes and possible a cover of one of my husband's (Jason Eady) songs that was written for me to sing. I'm proud of how I've grown as a writer, and I'm excited about the material that will fill this album.  It's country. And it's full of waltzes. And I'm not apologizing for either of those things."

The campaign seeks to raise a minimum of $17,500 by Tuesday, October 28, 2014 5:46 PM CDT. Click here to donate.
