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."

Rissi Palmer CD review - 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: Dixie Chicks age maybe even a little better – Natalie Maines, lead singer of the Dixie Chicks, joked that when she recorded Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide" 15 years ago, the line "and I'm getting older too," didn't mean as much as it does today. However, this group, which also includes Emily Robison on (mostly) banjo and Martie Maguire on fiddle, began as a bluegrass... »»»
Concert Review: Hensley, Ickes have a good thing going – Chances are strong that Dobro master extraordinaire Rob Ickes has used the line a time or two when he explained his instrument of choice as "a guitar played incorrectly." The line got the requisite laughter from the small crowd of about 25 in the intimate club. His sidekick, Trey Hensley, didn't offer any such comment.... »»»

Bush tells the story Sam Bush is back with a new record, "Storyman," not that he ever went anywhere.
