“One of the brightest rising stars in country music, Courtney Dickinson is that lightning-in-a-bottle, once-in-a-lifetime talent that reassures you that the future of country music is in very good hands. This powerhouse voice has a warm, endearing personality, God-given talent and a do-anything work ethic that makes it easy to believe in her and her craft. And I do believe in Courtney Dickinson. I believe Courtney Dickinson is the next big thing in country music and I believe the sky’s the limit for this soon-to-be superstar!” — Heath Shelby KWCK Program Director/Music Director Crain Media”
Every once in a while there’s a song that catches your attention. It just sounds so good from the first time you hear it. Other times there’s an artist that catches your attention. That ah- ha moment when you realize that you’re hearing someone special. It’s very, very rare when those two things happen at the same time. In my opinion they happened with Courtney Dickinson, “Young Forever”. Her talent, poise and infectious personality make Courtney such a pleasure to interact with and “Young Forever” is simply one of those songs that just makes the Radio Station sound good when it’s played. ”

"In an industry that is desperately looking for a unique artist that is setting trends, rather than following them, see Courtney Dickinson. Her new single “Freedom” is just the kind of song country radio is looking for. Modern and fresh, but still country. VERY well produced, and Courtney sings it like she’s lived it."”

"Courtney Dickinson has the unique ability to make singing seem easy. Never over-the-top or over-produced, she's an artist who sounds as good on the front porch as she does in the studio. The new single, "Freedom," is Courtney at her best. A sassy, happy breakup song on which her voice perfectly fits the smooth groove. A no-brainer for the format."”

Courtney’s set list is miraculously drawn from my favorite artists and songs over a generation of listening to country music. And not all so obvious. KT Tunstall’s Black Horse and a Cherry Tree, and the Dixie Chicks’ (via Fleetwood Mac) Landslide don’t necessarily belong on the same album, but in Courtney’s voice make for a perfect performance. Shania Twain, Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Dolly Parton, Taylor Swift, Hunter Hayes, Keith Urban, Brooks and Dunn, Chris Stapleton, Jo Dee Messina, Little Big Town, Deana Carter, and more all put in appearances in the playlist. I know and love them all. Courtney’s song selection cements my obsession. She likes what I like. That girl has good taste. And still that great voice. Other interviewers make comparisons to Trisha Yearwood or Carrie Underwood. I can hear it, but Courtney’s voice is both more and different. She says she likes the drums. Maybe that’s it. She offers a modern rhythm but has the range and can hit those ringing harmonies.”
