Promo Vet Debbie Gibson Palmer Passes

MusicRow extends its condolences to family and friends of veteran record promoter Debbie Gibson Palmer, who passed away in Los Angeles Friday, October 1. She was 58 years old. She is survived by her daughter Gaylene Aparicio, also in the record promotion business, and granddaughter Cassidy Aparicio.

A native of Nashville, Gibson-Palmer’s maiden name was Demonbreun and she was descended from the founders of Nashville. She was preceded in death by her husband of 23 years, Ed Palmer, in December 2009.

“I am deeply saddened by the passing of Debbie Gibson-Palmer,” says promoter Jerry Duncan. “She was an outstanding promoter, business associate and friend. Since our days together at Nationwide Sound Distributors, where we promoted the first Alabama records, Debbie, and the rest of the Gibson family have been like family to me. She will be missed by all of us in the music business. My deepest sympathy goes out to her daughter Gaylene and granddaughter Cassidy.”

A memorial service is being planned for December in Nashville, to be followed by burial in Woodlawn Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions to help with medical and other expenses be sent to:
