Following the news of the passing of legendary Country Music Hall of Famer Mel Tillis, his family, friends and colleagues are paying homage to the late singer-songwriter.
Country Music legend George Jones once said, “Moe Bandy is what Country Music is all about. When he sings a song, it has been sung.”
That´s why when you buy a Moe Bandy or Gene Watson CD, you know exactly what you are going to hear…real country music. And when you open Moe’s autobiography, you know exactly what you are going to read about…a real country music artist… One of the all-time greatest.
Moe says: "Lucky Me is also the title of my latest album. But it really sums up my life. I was lucky in so many ways in my life and my career. And I am blessed in so many ways with the life I have today. So I think ‘Lucky Me’ is a very appropriate title for my life story".
Former First Lady Barbara Bush sayd about "Lucky Me": "You will love this wonderful story of a Texas boy who never gave up on his dreams. He and his music are true American icons, and we are grateful he came into our lives. When you finish reading his life story, you’ll feel like he has come into yours.”
Following a lengthy struggle to regain his health, country music legend MelTillis passed away yesterday morning at the Munroe Regional Medical Center in Ocala, Florida. Tillis battled intestinal issues since early 2016 and never fully recovered. The suspected cause of death is respiratory failure. Tillis was 85.
The Country Music Hall of Famer leaves behind six children (Pam Tillis, Connie Tillis, Cindy Shorey, Sonny Tillis, Carrie April Tillis, and Hannah Puryear), six grandchildren, a great grandson, a sister (Linda Crosby) and brother (Richard Tillis), the mother of five of his children (Doris Tillis), his longtime partner (Kathy DeMonaco), and many lifelong friends and fans around the world.
The Tillis family asks for your prayers and will soon release more information regarding funeral services in Florida and Nashville.
