Palmer’s singles “Country Girl”“Hold On To Me” and “No Air” were all on the Billboard Country Charts, making her the first African-American woman to have a song on the country charts in 20 years. She has performed at the White House and the Grand Ole Opry on numerous occasions.

She recently released The Back Porch Sessions, a 5 song EP described as “Southern Soul”. This song collection blends together all her musical influences – from country to soul and R&B and has received rave reviews from publications such as Rolling Stone CountryPerezHilton.com, People Magazine as well as an appearance on the nationally syndicated Tavis Smiley Show and NPR’s The State of Things.
