Eddie Owen Presents: BB Palmer and Emmy Law
General Admission: $20 ($25 day of)
“Alabama’s B.B. Palmer creates music steeped in American Country Music while keeping an eye on contemporary events. You can hear this on the latest
Palmer opus, Krishna Country, a record that bridges the distant between Ravi Shankar and Tom T. Hall with remarkable aplomb.” – Pop Matters
“The ‘Lee County’s Finest’ album is a one & done kind of listen. It’s an intricate yet simple telling of struggle vs. triumph, good vs. evil, & lucid dreams vs. harsh political realities. In my opinion, these are the primary themes of the record and they are wondrously interwoven within 11 songs that flow together as one concept.” – RICKY’S REVIEWS // Nashville TN
“On repeated listens, the songs unfurl as the lyrics sink into your consciousness, suggesting questions as much as revealing answers. The depths of these songs seem to plunge further away as you become more familiar with them, until you are staring into the abyss of pain and struggle that is the human condition, wrestling with the facts of reincarnation, resurrection and Armageddon. As I said, this is existential honky-tonk.” – Tony Sexton, Whiskey Preachin – Brighton UK
Hailing from the heart of railroad country in Opelika, Alabama, B.B. Palmer reworks the southeastern country sound with their “existential honky-tonk” (Mobile Press Register) songs and mesmerizing live show.
B.B. Palmer has shared bills with greats such as: Alan Jackson, Dawes, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Earth Wind & Fire, Brent Cobb, Mike and The Moonpies, Old Crow Medicine Show, American Aquarium and Andrew Combs.

Emmy Law is an indie pop singer-songwriter currently based in Nashville, TN. She’s spent the last four years in Atlanta, heavily involved in the local music scene. She’s performed in some of Atlanta’s top venues, including Eddie’s Attic, Red Clay Music Foundry, and the Music Room at Smith’s Olde Bar. She’s played in a variety of notable venues in the southeast, including Isis Music Hall in Asheville, NC, the Crimson Moon in Dahlonega, GA, and the Evening Muse in Charlotte, NC, where she opened for national touring band The Arcadian Wild.
She’s also made a name for herself in Atlanta’s open mic scene, winning the night and advancing to the final round in a few of the best the city has to offer: Eddie’s Attic, EOP at Red Clay Music Foundry, and the 99x Original Series. In 2014, Emmy won the John Jarrard Foundation songwriting contest, which was judged in part by members of the Zac Brown Band. As part of the contest winnings, Emmy opened onstage for some renowned Nashville songwriters, and says it’s been one of the best moments in her performing career.
Emmy’s song ‘Simple’ from her ‘Find Ourselves Again’ EP was chosen as one of Immersive Atlanta’s best local songs of 2019. The blog states, “Emmy Law’s ‘Simple’ is a barebones folk song about navigating adult love and struggling to locate your identity in the present. All the while, the song’s delicate balance between piano and Law’s gossamer voice makes you wonder about the last time you let anything be simple.” Emmy’s new EP ‘Bitter Heart’, is the first music she’s tracked in this vocal style and it’s the first music she’s recorded in Nashville. The EP, out May 21, 2021, is a step in a new direction for her.
