I am a big fan of Mel Tillis. I saw four of his shows throughout the 70s. During this time, he often had three fiddles in his band, The Statesiders.

His daughter, Pam Tillis was also a great country artist. Loved her recordings.

And for a great laugh, check out Mel’s old movie with Roy Clark “Uphill All the Way.”

Yes, Mel Tillis was a great singer/songwriter and certainly a country music heavyweight during his time.

Mel Tillis, what a great singer indeed. And true country.
I do remember his role in Cannonball Run back then I did not know he was the Coca-Cola cowboy singer!
My favorite Mel Tillis song is "What Did I Promise Her Last Night" from the late 70's.
