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."
