Well her TV fate anyway. Rissi's new Travel Channel show, "Rissi Palmer's Country," aired this weekend. Now the fate of the show depends on a thumbs up or thumbs down from the suits. Rissi blogs...
Current mood: awakeHey all,
Thank you so much to everyone who came to the party and who watched at home on Saturday night. There were way more people than I expected considering that it was snowing Nashville and people don't leave their houses when the news mentions snow, so I appreciate everyone braving the 3 flakes for me ;-) Thank you to Piranhas for keeping the drinks flowing and tvs fixed on Travel Channel, Sweet 16 for the gorgeous and oh so delicious chocolate cake (the 12 hour marathon workout I'm going to have to do this week is worth it), Dan Sexton Media for making it possible, and the good people at Paradise Park for making cheese fries available at 1am (LMAO!!!). And if you saw me anytime after about 11:45pm Saturday night, I'm sure I told you I love you (and then probably fell), and at the time I'm sure I really meant it LOL.
It was a very surreal 30 minutes for me, to see car commercials in between my banter. I was excited and terrified all at the same time. The only thing I can equate it to is when my album came out. You and your team work hard on something for months, put your heart and soul into it, and then present it to the world for critique with a very vulnerable, heart on your sleeve kind of feeling. The response has been positive (thank God!!!) and if nothing else, I'm pretty proud of it.
So what happens now? Well I'm glad you asked!!! Now we wait for Travel Channel to make a decision about the fate of "Rissi Palmer's Country" based on ratings and the public's response. If you enjoyed the show, and would like to see more, go to:
Travel Channel Discussion Board
and click on the "Rissi Palmer" discussion on the first page and post your thoughts.
As always, your kindness and support overwhelms and humbles me, you're the reason I get live my childhood dreams everyday and thats amazing!!!
God bless and talk to you soon...
