Mel Tillis Songs You Don't Hear As Much



Getting ready for the Mel Tillis concert at Alberta Bair Theater May 7, I realized their are a LOT of songs from Mel Tillis you don't hear as much.

Mel Tillis had 33 Top 10 songs in his career and nine Number One songs.

You'll hear Send Me Down to Tucson and Coca Cola Cowboy on KGHL.

But what about some of the other great Mel Tillis songs.  Here are a few we put together for you.

I Ain't Never

Lyin' Time Again

Sawmill/Good Woman Blues

I Got The Hoss

Mel's recovery from heart surgery is progressing nicely.  I expect to see him at Alberta Bair Theater May 7.  If you need tickets, go here.
