Courtney Dickinson – Convenience Store – The Hype Magazine
Courtney Dickinson‘s new single “Convenience Store” is for anyone who has ever felt used and unappreciated in a relationship. Clever writing, by Dickinson and Erik Halbig, and soft yet powerful vocals perfectly portray the strength in finally saying no. With her personality poured into it, “Convenience Store” delivers the right amount of sass, strength and bubbly Georgian spirit, just like Courtney. It is an instant country singalong that will get stuck in your head all day, but fair warning – after listening to it, you might have a strong urge to send it to THAT person.
“I am so excited to finally release “Convenience Store.” This song is one of my favorites I have ever written. My writing partner, Erik Halbig, and I were actually having trouble coming up with something to write, but once the idea hit, I just knew we had to write it. It’s a fun way of telling that certain someone that texts you at midnight that you aren’t just there only at their convenience. It really became an empowerment song and I am really proud of that,” said Dickinson.
Courtney has been hard at work throughout the pandemic perfecting her craft, writing new music and playing live streams. She has also picked up some new hobbies including baking and refinishing furniture given to her by her beloved grandparents, keeping their memory alive. Courtney can’t wait to get back on the road when things are safe and meet new fans soon!
About Courtney Dickinson:
A rarity having a clear vision of her goals early in life, country artist CourtneyDickinson paved her own, unconventional path from the start. Going as far as dropping the stereotypical high school and college lifestyle. She attended online classes in order to spend more time honing her skills, it’s obvious her tenacity, work ethic and evident talent set Dickinson apart from others. From her first time on stage at five years old with the Little General Cloggers dance group at the Grand Ole Opry, Dickinson knew she was destined for the stage. Later, Dickinson entered a contest with Atlanta’s Kicks 101.5 and won a duet performance with Billy Ray Cyrus during the station’s Lunchtime Live event, singing Cyrus’ “Ready, Set, Don’t Go” for listeners. As she continued to fine-tune her sound, Dickinson tested it out with performances at Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe, Hard Rock Battle of the Bands, the Country Music Association’s CMA Music Festival, Belk’s Southern Original Showcase, pre-show parties for Sugarland, Big & Rich and Cowboy Troy, the NCAA St. Patrick’s Day Party and the National Anthem and pre-show for the Atlanta Braves. Along with these performances she began to learn the craft of songwriting and began co-writing and recording new material. She released “So Over the Rainbow” and watched as it exploded onto the Music Row Chart. In a record number of weeks “So Over the Rainbow” climbed into the Top 40. She followed up with her 2nd single “Freedom,” which also landed in the Top 40. Dickinson has set herself up for success as she releases more new music this year.
