Pennsylvania born Rissi Palmer took her first step towards making history with her 2007 release of her self-titled debut album.

 

The lead single “Country Girl” earned Palmer the distinction of being the first Black woman to chart on Billboard’s Hot Country Song charts since 1987. With a warm, rich voice that lends itself perfectly to country music, Palmer has well earned her place in the industry over the years with a body of work that has proven her versatility and talent.

 

In 2013 Palmer released a children’s album, “Best Day Ever”, followed in 2015 by a 5 song EP “The Back Porch Sessions.”

 

In 2019 “Revival”, a full-length album where  Palmer bears her soul by digging into tough subjects like police brutality and immigration was released.

 

In August of 2020 Palmer once again made history when she debuted “Color Me Country Radio” on Apple Music Country. Color Me Country brings the diversity of country music to the spotlight by highlighting Black, Indigenous, and Latinx stories and having the tough, necessary conversations about the obstacles those artists face.
