Rissi Palmer And Miko Marks Announce 2023 Co-Headlining Acoustic Tour

Rissi Palmer: "2023 is all about making your own magic."

Country music trailblazers Rissi Palmer and Miko Marks will join forces in 2023 on a co-headlining tour. 

The pair will embark on a nine-date run and will perform acoustic renditions from each of their impressive catalogs. The must-see show is slated to kick off in Washington, DC, on May 3 and will stop at intimate venues across the United States. The dream team will bring their astonishing talents to New York City, Atlanta, and Boston. 

Marks confirmed that she is looking forward to spending time with the "Well Enough Alone" singer-songwriter out on the road. 

"Working with Rissi on tour is definitely one of the highlights of my journey in music," said Marks. "I have always loved her music, and now I get to be on tour with her. We have grown to be close friends over the years, and this moment has been a long time coming," she added.  

The announcement follows their memorable appearance at the Grand Ole Opry, where they received a standing ovation with their unreleased duet "I'm Still Here" and grand performance at AmericanaFest. 

Palmer fearlessly stepped into the country scene in 2007 with her self-titled debut album and instantly became a vital voice in the genre. At the time, Palmer was the first Black woman to grace the top of the Billboard Country chart in 20 years. The hit song "Country Girl" propelled Palmer into the spotlight, and she hasn't budged since. While forging her own path, she released her second studio album "Revival" in 2019 and launched "Color Me Country" on Apple Music, a radio show that provides musicians of color and those who have been marginalized a platform. 

Marks dropped her first collection, "Freeway Bound" in 2005 and "It Feels Good" in 2007. The CMT Next Women of Country member took a 13-year hiatus, but made a triumphant return with her 2021 record "Our Country." Recently, the powerhouse shared her critically acclaimed album "Feel Like Going Home," the same night she made her Opry debut. 

The friendship between Palmer and Marks blossomed in the early 2000s, as they worked tirelessly together to combat racism in the country space and drive inclusivity. 

"Miko has been an inspiration and a friend for a long time," said Palmer. "Her talent is second to none, and it's an honor to be sharing a stage with her. The audience can expect a lot of laughter, lots of good, new music, stories, and a great show!"

Tickets will be available on Friday, November 18, via Miko Marks and Rissi Palmer's official websites.
