The two country talents are teaming up for nine acoustic performances, beginning with a stop at Washington D.C.’s Kennedy Center as a part of their ongoing Millennium Stage Series. The pair will stop at cities across the U.S., including Boston, NYC and Philadelphia before wrapping up with a set at Eddie’s Attic in Atlanta.
The co-headlining trek follows Marks and Palmer’s appearances at the Grand Ole Opry and AmericanaFest earlier this year, where they performed their yet-to-be-released collaboration “I’m Still Here” to multiple standing ovations.
Both immensely talented artists in their own right, Palmer and Marks have forged a strong friendship since debuting on the country scene in the early 2000s. Palmer, host of Apple Music’s Color Me Country with Rissi Palmer, has been a vocal supporter of Marks, who returned to country music after a 13-year hiatus with the release of her acclaimed 2021 record Our Country.
“Working with Rissi on tour is definitely one of the highlights of my journey in music,” Marks says. “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.”
“Miko has been an inspiration and a friend for a long time. Her talent is second to none and it’s an honor to be sharing a stage with her,” Palmer notes. “The audience can expect a lot of laughter, a lot of good, new music, stories, and a great show.”
