Rissi Palmer is here to talk about her new Apple Music Country series, “Color Me Country.” The show shines a light on the rich history of Black, Indigenous and Latinx people in country music, and Rissi tells us why the success of Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” inspired her to start the series. Rissi also tells us about her own experience as a black woman making country music on a major level in the 2000s. We also dig into her inspiring latest album, “Revival,” which addresses issues of social justice and the pressing need to keep speaking up for equality in America. Plus, Rissi explains the relationship between her daughters Grace and Nova, describes the ongoing influence of ‘80s television on our need for “pageantry” and explains how she’s seen the banning of The Chicks from country radio play out over the last decade.
