Friend, daughter, singer, producer, vibrant young woman: Courtney Blooding has left an indelible mark on our hearts and on the world. She lit up a room when she walked in and pursued every endeavor with passion and tenacity. Music has been a dominant thread running through her life, from singing in children’s choir in Murfreesboro to completing dual degrees in vocal music and recording production to working with a brilliant producer in Los Angeles and traveling around the world.
Courtney’s passions embraced healthy eating and distance running, dark chocolate and a chocolate “minpin” named Mousse whose feistiness matched her own. The love of her life, Curt, centered her and drew her back home to the Nashville area to continue her pursuits in the music industry.
