Rissi Palmer talks with Hunter and Ashley on All Our Favorite People Podcast 

I had an absolute BALL talking with Hunter and Ashley. We discuss my new Apple Music Country series, “Color Me Country Radio w/ Rissi Palmer .” The show shines a light on the rich history of Black, Indigenous and Latinx people in country music, and why the success of Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” inspired me to start the series. I also talk about her own experience as a black woman making country music on a major level in the 2000s. 

We also dig into my latest album, “Revival,” which addresses issues of social justice and the pressing need to keep speaking up for equality in America. Plus, I explain the relationship between my daughters Grace and Nova, describes the ongoing influence of ‘80s television on our need for “pageantry” and explains how watching the banning of The Chicks from country radio play out over the last decade.

The Digital Fix and Rissi Palmer discuss the making of Revival 

"I’ve just learned to stay focused on my mission and my passion. Anything that takes away from that is a distraction. I know who I am and what I bring to the table."

A HUGE thank you to Max and The Digital Fix for this great interview. We discuss the origins of Revival as well as my recording process, and so much more. You can check out the interview HERE

In the early days of quarantine, I was invited by Skylar Gudasz and Southern Cultures to record a song that brings me comfort. Comfort is a commodity these days...Anyway, I performed a song that has meant a lot to me and wanted to share it with you all.

Pierce Freelon releases the family album D.a.D , including collaboration with Rissi Palmer! 

I am honored that Pierce Freelon asked me to be a part of this beautiful family album. Children’s music has been a love of mine since I became a mommy; the messages that our children get are SO important. Pierce and I collaborated on the song “My Body (Body Autonomy)” (along w/ my daughter Grace and Nico Ocaña Sonic Pie Productions), a song teaching kids about consent. Added bonus: you get to hear me rap for the first time ever 🤣 Everything I’ve heard on this album is wonderful and I hope that you’ll support when it’s released on July 31. Our single, "My Body", is out now, listen to it HERE!!! Click HERE to presave the album.

Check out the premiere of the video for "You Were Here"... 

"You Were Here (Sage's Song)", from my new album Revival, was written during the lowest of lows for a child I would never get to hold. The stats are that 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage and yet there is so much silent pain associated with them. I dedicate this to anyone who has experienced a loss of any kind, or this particuar type of loss... you are not alone. Thank you to Julienne Alexander aka YSSRS for the beautiful animation.
