NASHVILLE, TENN. – Just announced as Big Loud Records’ newest signing, Griffen Palmer is starting the year off strong, selected today as SiriusXM The Highway’s newest “Highway Find.”
After heading into the SiriusXM studio in downtown Nashville this morning for what he believed to be a normal interview, Palmer was surprised by host Storme Warren with the news. Warren then treated listeners to an exclusive first listen of the singer/songwriter’s solo version of Songland-winning ballad “Second Guessing,” set for release this Friday (1/13).
A highly coveted honor within the country music community, the “Highway Find” program is part of SiriusXM The Highway‘s commitment to spotlighting outstanding new talent in the genre. Palmer joins an elite group of power players with the accolade, including reigning ACM New Male Artist of the Year Parker McCollum, reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Combs, Gabby Barrett, Maren Morris, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, and many more.
“Oh my gosh, that’s just crazy,” Palmer responded to the news. “Everything in my career so far has been about a few people believing in me, opening up the next door and connecting one more dot. To add another group of people that are in my corner and believe in me means the world.”
Palmer adds this bucket list moment to a red-hot start to 2023. The rapid-rising talent shows no signs of slowing down, hitting the road in February as support on labelmate Lily Rose‘s 2023 headlining tour, and slating his full-length debut for later this year.
