"Courtney Smith - Women's Radio"

Having gotten the ‘naughty’ bits out of the way early in this week’s episode, up-and-coming Nashville vixen, Courtney Smith, brings our listeners back to the world of tactfulness with a wholesome, emo-centric song to get that old ticker pumping again … it’s called “My Love” and can be felt all the way across the country; perhaps even across oceans. - Women's Radio


Still working on that hot first release.



Courtney Smith calls the music on her debut EP, Lips that Taste of Tears,
“honest and emotional… love, lust and heartache set to music.” She
confides that there’s a very vulnerable aspect of exposing your deepest
hurts to the world, yet there’s something quite beautiful and therapeutic
about it as well. According to Smith, “this record embodies several stages
of relationships, from being madly in love to finally letting go of
someone you loved for so long. If I’ve felt it, so have millions of other
people. I wanted to be honest with myself, first and foremost. I think the
emotions shine through the music.”

Smith grew up in Johnson City, TN, but found a home in Nashville in 2008.
She bounced around to several states as a child, her father being a
minister of music, but moved to Johnson City after his passing. Her mother
raised her and her brother while putting herself through a Master’s
program at the local university. While there was always some sort of music
being played or practiced at home, Smith says it took her until high
school to realize she could sing. “In ninth grade I got the solo I
auditioned for, and almost couldn’t believe it… It was the beginning of
opening up as a person and starting to grow into who I‘ve become,” she

With a fire to continually push herself and never stop growing as an
artist, it’s no surprise she already has a new arsenal of songs she plays
live and looks forward to sharing with the world. “First things first,”
she laughs, “I’m excited to see how this album is received. I just want it
to be relatable… if one other person connects with a song, it’s a success
to me.”

Lips that Taste of Tears will be out on Nascent Republic Records in
December. The label will be taking Smith and two other artists, Joey
Barnes and Patrick Rock, to several cities on an acoustic tour early next
