Ubuntu Peoples Podcast, Ep #83-Rissi Palmer: Detours, Revival & Color Me Country In 2007, country singer Rissi Palmer became the first Black female with a song on the charts in 20 yrs with her hit Country Girl. The fame and notoriety that followed was the culmination of years of hard work and faith. But the country music business didn't know what to do with a Black woman. Rissi felt like her color was a problem to the solved by industry folk who never saw her. A prolonged court battle with her label, having to work retail for minimum wage, moving back home with her family, finding solace at the bottom of a bottle; it's the lyrics country songs are made of for a woman who's now going through revival. After a detour, a spiral, love, marriage, leaving Nashville, two kids and now a new show called Color Me Country on Apple Music Country, Rissi Palmer is where she wanted to be: an important voice in country music. https://rissipalmermusic.com/ TOPICS 01:45...
