Over the past year Sarah Elizabeth has had performances across Tennessee, Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, written countless songs, began a journey playing with an incredibly talented band at her side.

This will be Sarah Elizabeth’s second time on the Hard Rock stage, and she’s looking forward to the experience once again!  

 

 

Courtney Dickinson 

 

A rarity having a clear vision of her goals early in life, country artist Courtney Dickinson paved her own, unconventional path from the start. “I knew it was going to take a lot of work to be able to pull this off, but I knew from an early age that if I wanted to be successful, I needed to put everything into my music. Luckily, I have a very supportive family that has helped along the way” said Dickinson. Going as far as dropping the stereotypical high school lifestyle for 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 chasing the music dream. 

 

Dickinson’s talent started as a toddler when she began her acting and modeling careers. At five years old, Dickinson danced with the Little General Clogger’s dance group on stage at the Grand Ole Opry. It was with that performance that Dickinson knew she was destined for the stage. “The calmness that came over me when I walked onto that stage taught me one thing – “that this is where I belong.” I have never had a problem performing and the excitement I feel when I get ready to step on stage...It’s my safe place. It feels like home.” Her dreams quickly turned from clogging to performing at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville with the audience singing her lyrics back to her. “To have an audience know your lyrics and sing along is one of the most incredible experiences… To have them do so at the Grand Ole Opry? That’s my goal for my next visit to the Grand Ole Opry!” 

 

At twelve, 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 at Turner Field. With these performances, Dickinson felt confident taking the leap and moving to Nashville, which she did in 2015. 

 

Upon her arrival in Music City, Dickinson began co-writing and recording new material. In March of 2016, she released her debut single, “Young Forever”, currently at radio nationwide and landing in the Official Top 80 of the Music Row Chart. Young Forever climbed the chart to a successful # 72. 

 

Despite the excitement surrounding the release, and a busy radio tour to promote the single, Dickinson maintains that her favorite part of the entire process is the weekly chart release. 

 

“You know that feeling you get when you are waiting on a boy you like to text you back? That’s how every Thursday feels when I am waiting to see my name on the charts with some of my biggest idols.” 

 

Aside from the success of her first single, Dickinson also performed in the Marriott Rewards Battle of the Bands, finished in the Top 3 and performed in Austin Texas at Marriott’s Corporate Event.
Her self-titled EP is available on ITunes, Amazon and iHeart Radio.

 

 

 

Sarah Mootz

 

I am a singer-songwriter based out of the Atlanta area. I have over 50 original songs and enjoy every chance I get to play them. I have played out ever since I was 16 years old and haven't stopped since! 

 

My love for music started in middle school when I realized that my connection with it had the power to pull me through any situation. Since then, it has continued to grow. It grew dramatically when I found a passion to write what I was feeling and create the melodies to go along with it. I picked up guitar along the way!
