Mel Tillis (1932-2017) - Country Music Singer-Songwriter Who Overcame a Stuttering Problem


Recommended Posts

He wrote Ruby,  Don't Take Your Love to Town, which was actually controversial for the line "It wasn't me who started that old crazy Asian war?"

Since we are in Blue Grass Country I post the performance by Flatt and Scruggs!

Then he was a co-author of this classic done here by Bobby Bare, Detroit City. It's another of those songs you can hardly even believe there was a time BEFORE it came along! Seems it came in the air! Songs like this aren't written so much as discovered.
