Music of the Carolinas: Rissi Palmer


Singer/songwriter Palmer has performed with such notable artists as Charley Crockett, Chris Young, Taylor Swift and the Eagles, and she has been invited to the White House and the Grand Ole Opry on numerous occasions. In addition, her music, which she describes as “southern soul,” has been popularized on such television shows as Saving Grace, Army Wives, and Heartland and was featured in The Woodsman. In the 10 years since her debut, Palmer has released two more albums—one, a children’s album, Best Day Ever—and has earned a rare appearance, for an African American female, on Billboard magazine’s Top Country Albums chart.
