Red Boots Roots hosts Rissi Palmer, Live from her House!

Virtual

Rissi Palmer's gift lies in reaching across all musical boundaries. While she made her mark in Country Music, she is equally at home in R&B music, bringing the entire spectrum of popular music to bear on music she calls “Southern Soul.” As a passionate voice for country artists of color and those who have been marginalized in mainstream country music, Rissi launched her own radio show Color Me Country with Rissi Palmer on Apple Music Country. Since making its debut in August 2020, listeners have been treated to in-depth and riveting, often funny, yet very necessary conversations with artists such as Brittney Spencer, Chapel Hart, Crystal Shawanda, Darius Rucker, Mickey Guyton, Miko Marks, The War and Treaty and many more. In conjunction with her radio show, Rissi also created the Color Me Country Artist Grant Fund designed to support new country artists of color who are just beginning to build their music careers. We can't see Rissi live, but we're very excited that she has agreed to play our virtual series from her house. Here is all that you need to do to join us. 1.
