Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Mel Tillis Jr. will perform at 7 p.m. Saturday in Boot City Opry, 11904 S. U.S. 41.

Tillis is proudly carrying on the musical tradition set forth by his father, Country Music Hall of Famer Mel Tillis.

In addition to having songs recorded by Reba McEntire, Trace Adkins, Lee Greenwood, Billy Currington, Ricky Skaggs, Chris LeDoux, Gene Watson, Suzy Boguss, Ty Herndon and Clinton Gregory, Mel Jr. received BMI honors as co-writer of Jamie O’Neal’s No. 1 Grammy nominated hit single, “When I Think About Angels.”

As a performer, Mel Jr.’s mission is to not only pay tribute to his legendary father, but to continually grow his own fan base and give real country music fans what they’ve been missing.
