Pam Tillis On Today’s Country Classic Double
I always look forward to our Big Frog 104 “Country Classic Double”, weekdays at 11:30 a.m.. I hear back from listeners how they like to hear some of the good old songs from the good old days. Today, we feature Pam Tillis as our first artist of the double, as on this day, August 26, 2000, she was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry.
Here’s a little bio information on Pam Tillis courtesy of Wikipedia:
Pamela Yvonne (Pam) Tillis (born July 24, 1957 in Plant City, Florida) is an American country music singer-songwriter and actress. She is the daughter of country music singer Mel Tillis.
Originally a demo singer in Nashville, Tennessee, Pam was signed to Warner Bros. Records in 1981, with nine singles and a studio album being released in the 1980s. She later found work as a staff songwriter for Tree Publishing. By 1991, she had signed to Arista Records; that year, she reached Top 5 on the Billboard country charts with “Don’t Tell Me What to Do”, the first of five singles from her second album, Put Yourself in My Place, which was certified gold by the RIAA.
Between 1991 and the present, Tillis has charted more than thirty singles on the U.S. Billboard country charts, including her only Number One single, 1995’s “Mi Vida Loca (My Crazy Life)”. She has also released ten albums overall (nine studio albums plus a Greatest Hits compilation), with three platinum and two gold certifications. She has also founded her own label, Stellar Cat Records.
