Courtney Peveler Sings for Muhlenberg Job Corps Staff

January 11th, 2019

The 2018 MJCC Christmas party was blessed to have the very talented Courtney Peveler, as the event’s entertainment.  Shannon Gorham, who works at MJCC, said, “Courtney is not only a cousin and best friend to my daughter, Gracey, she’s also a very special part of our family. So her performing for MJCC is a memory I will cherish forever.”

Courtney held the MJCC staff’s full attention with her strong vocals and ability to play the guitar. One staff member stated they couldn’t believe someone that small had such a powerful voice. MJCC staff noticed the talent in Courtney’s ability to sing and write from the first song performed. They are not the only ones who noticed!  Courtney, a 16 year old junior at MCHS, has recently signed a contract with Nashville management/booking agency Last Train Home. Courtney is not only a talented singer, but also writes most of her own songs.  She released her first album “Never Been Before” in 2016.

Most recently Peveler and (then) Muhlenberg County Sheriff, Curtis McGhee, collaborated a song together, which included the words to a poem he wrote titled, “Officer Down.”

Courtney’s dad, Trent Peveler, was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer a few months ago and in the midst of the family’s difficult journey, Courtney wrote a tribute song to her father titled “Strong.”

Courtney has won competitions at the Pennington Folk Festival, Kentucky State Fair, WBKR Talent, Nashville Country Showdown, as well as numerous other local events. She was also nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year (Josie Music Awards 2018).

What a truly amazing way to bring in the Christmas holiday and start the New Year for MJCC.
