It’s been a high-energy start to 2022 for Courtney Keil, which has included performing with Gina Jeffreys & Max Jackson in New South Wales (Girls Night Out Tour), opening for Andrew Swift in Victoria (The Art of Letting Go album launch tour), and performing the National Anthem for Australia’s National Basketball League (NBL), with Courtney’s rendition being broadcast on Foxtel via ESPN and live on Kayo Sport. 
 
Fans will remember Courtney performing the National Anthem at the opening race of the 2021 Supercars Championship at Bathurst, which was broadcast to an audience of 1.64 million (7 Network, Fox Sports & Kayo). 
 
This year’s excitement continues to build for Courtney Keil, with news arriving that her debut single ‘I Just Wanna Hold You’ has been selected as a Top 40 Finalist in the Vanda & Young Global Songwriting Competition for 2021.
 
After being postponed for 3 months, anticipation is now building for the 2022 Tamworth Country Music Festival in April, where Courtney will again take to the stage with Gina Jeffreys, Tania Kernaghan and Max Jackson to perform their ‘Girls Night Out’ show at West Leagues. 
 
Courtney has also delighted audiences, performing as June Carter in the ‘Johnny Cash - The Concert’ tour alongside Daniel Thompson at The Palms, Crown Casino in Melbourne, The Capitol, Tamworth and Glasshouse, Port Macquarie. She will return to the stage again for postponed shows throughout the country this year, so watch out for tour dates.
 
After the success of her debut release in 2020  ‘I Just Wanna Hold You’ (#15 TMN Country Hot 50 / Semi-Finalist 2020 ISC, Top 40 finalist Vanda & Young Global Songwriting Competition),  2021 brought releases of feel good ‘Hummingbird’ (#2 AIR 100% Independent Singles Chart / #29 TMN Country Hot 50), enchanting ballad ‘Where Does All The Love Go’ and gutsy Little Heartbreak’ which all secured high rotation across country radio networks. 
 
Courtney’s first three singles each reached #1 on the iTunes Country Australia chart with her accompanying music videos produced and directed by Duncan Toombs (7x Golden Guitar Winner) of The Filmery receiving rotation on CMT.
 
Courtney Keil brings lyrical depth, emotional connection and creates music that speaks of resilience and encourages her audience to overcome difficult and challenging times, all the trademarks of a genuine and sincere artist. She continues to add to her catalogue of songs, again writing with her mentor Gina Jeffreys (1991 Star Maker Winner/5x Golden Guitar Winner), her producer Rod McCormack (3 x CMAA Producer of the Year), Templeton Thompson (Reba McEntire/Jo Dee Messina/Little Texas), and Sam Gay (Deric Ruttan/Little Texas/Bryan White) and more.
