Rissi Palmer’s Journey as a Black Woman in Country Music

Bon Jour Queen,

You’re in for a treat! Today on Black Women Amplified, we have an extraordinary guest. Please join me in welcoming the talented Rissi Palmer to the show.

Rissi’s musical journey has been nothing short of remarkable. With a career spanning over a decade, she has cemented her place in the country music scene, exploring and integrating other genres into her music, creating a unique sound she calls “Southern Soul.”

She released her self-titled debut album in 2007, which featured chart-topping singles such as “Country Girl,” “Hold On To Me,” and “No Air.” Since then, she has independently released a Christmas single, a children’s album called Best Day Ever, an EP titled The Back Porch Sessions, and her most recent album, Revival, which has received critical acclaim for its personal and uplifting message.

Throughout her career, Rissi has performed at iconic venues like The White House and Lincoln Center and has shared stages with music legends such as The Eagles and Taylor Swift. She has also been featured in numerous publications like Essence, Huffington Post, New York Times, Rolling Stone, and The Wall Street Journal, to name a few.

In addition to her successful music career, Rissi is also a passionate advocate for diversity in country music. She hosts her own radio show, Color Me Country with Rissi Palmer, which features in-depth conversations with artists of color who have been marginalized in the industry. Rissi has also established the Color Me Country Artist Grant Fund, which provides financial support to new country artists of color.

As a special correspondent for CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown, Rissi continues to share her insights and experiences with a wider audience.
