Rissi Palmer comes up with "No Air"
Friday, July 18, 2008
– Rissi Palmer will release a video for her latest single, "No Air," with the video debuting on CMT Monday, July 21 and online premiere at Yahoo! Music. "No Air" is Palmer's third single and has become her fastest rising song to date. Originally recorded by American Idol winner Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown, the song first became a pop hit, but Palmer put a country twist on the song.
Palmer traveled to the majestic Turks & Caicos Islands to film the video with director Kristin Barlowe (LeAnn Rimes, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert), who also directed Palmer's very first video, "Country Girl." The two-day video shoot took place on the beaches.
"The islands were nothing short of amazing, and I think the video really captures the essence of the song, and I can't wait for everyone to see it," Palmer said.
"No Air," produced by Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift), is currently available for download on iTunes. Later this summer, the song will be included on the re-release of the singer's debut album on 1720 Entertainment, "Rissi Palmer."

CD reviews for Rissi Palmer
Rissi Palmer hit the charts with the sassy, uptempo single "Country Girl," but that doesn't represent the majority of tunes on her self-titled debut.
The Missouri native's 12-songs are chock full of ballads and a few mid-tempo songs. That's a good thing, considering Palmer has the vocal power to shine on everything from contemporary ballads like "I'm Not Of This World" and "Butterflies" to a well-done Patsy Cline cover, "Leavin' On Your Mind. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Southern Ohio 'grass fest flies by
The spring 2017 edition of the Southern Ohio Indoor Music Festival kicked off as few likely have in the past, not with a great bluegrass band, but a great bluegrass orchestra. Opening the show were roughly 40 students from the Centerville, Ohio High School Orchestra known as Alternative Strings.
For many years, Alternative Strings have branched out... »»»
Concert Review: Lane oversees her queendom
When Nikki Lane rolled into town on her current Stagecoach Spotlight Tour, she and her touring mates were under the weather. Although illness didn't keep Lane performing (she was in fine voice throughout), Robert Ellis was a last-minute scratch. His replacement, Jenny O, was one high caliber fill-in, however, and kept the bill strong.... »»»

Someone needs to inform karma that Raelynn is not getting what she deserves. It takes a lot of work to mess this equation up: national TV exposure (from "The Voice"), a monster hit (2014's "God Made Girls") and famous friends who've practically adopted you (like Blake Shelton). This is all atop her twangy Texan charm and very capable singer/songwriter chops. »»»
