    Not a country music fan, I thought. He was dead already.
    Anyway, RIP

    I liked him. I was raised on C&W. He ways always funny as all get out on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. He could sing so pretty then intentionally crack people up with his stuttering. RIP, Mel.

    I knew he was getting "up there"! As many times as I've been in Ocala, I always hoped I would some day run into him. Once again, its the death of a real talent in real country music which is far, far above and beyond what is marketed as "country music" today!

    I didn't know he was still alive, tbh. When I told my husband about this, he said, "M-m-m-mel Tillis?"

    Elizabeth Cook posted pictures where she opened shows for him when she was like 11 years old. She mentioned that his band would back her as a kid some. She also noted how back in the day, Pam had a punk band. Now that would have been interesting.

    I was never a huge fan but he made his mark. RIP.
