I suppose you could compare her to Tiger Woods, since the country music scene has about as many African Americans as the golf scene did when Tiger started... No there are less.

Rissi Palmer's self-titled album comes out October 23, and its first single “Country Girl” has already hit No. 54 on Billboard's Hot Country charts. Rissi gets a lot of surprised looks when she steps out on stage in Nashville but everyone relaxes when they hear her sing.

Implications - Rissi Palmer is not looking for any special treatment, she says, just a fair shot. After listening to a few of her songs, here's to hoping she gets that chance soon.
