Dr. Palmer was presented a Community History Award from the East Tennessee Historical Society in May of 2013. It stated, "Dr. Gail Palmer has produced a large body of work on the Great Smoky Mountains.... Her books share a native's look at the mountain people, a captivating and entertaining model for communicating local history through storytelling." Betty B. Best, journal editor, Blount County Genealogical & Historical Society, nominated Palmer for the ETHS award.

Dr. Palmer holds a Ph.D. in Cultural Studies from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, where she served as director of the Advising Center for the College of Communications. Her research interests have resulted in Cemeteries of the Smokies, now scheduled to be published by GSMA in 2016. Dr. Palmer's deep interest in this area arises from her family's history in Cades Cove. Her grandfather, John Marion Sparks, and grandmother, Elizabeth Shular Sparks, lived in the Cove as did her great, great grandparents, Nathan and Jane Potter Sparks, for whom Sparks Lane in Cades Cove is named.
