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: The Cadillac Three, Sellers do it their own way
The way The Cadillac Three lead singer Jaren Johnston told it, the band could have had their choice of opening tours this year for the likes of Kenny Chesney, Dierks Bentley and Jake Owen. No go though because the long-haired singer fronting the rough-and-most-definitely ready trio said the band wanted to do it their own way.

Notes of Blue
Son Volt's "Notes of Blue" is said to be influenced by the blues (among other musical styles), and the blues is most at the fore during "Cherokee St.," a stomping, electric guitar-driven blues rocker. The song has the stripped-down sound of a Blind Willie Johnson sermon, although lead vocalist Jay Farrar is by no means the gravelly singer Johnson was. »»»
