Courtney is originally from Texas and enjoys playing up the CA/TX rivalry, since, in her opinion, the states are two sides of the same coin (although CA is prettier and Texans have more character). That way of looking at the world informs her life in Sacramento, where she often finds herself playing contrarian. If you look closely, you might see it when she performs. If you look really closely, you might also sense a spicier edge she picked up from years on the East Coast. Really, Courtney is just trying to find a place to belong, which may or may not be on stage — you be the judge!
