Rate this:
Touring the back roads of Kentucky on a hot July day in 1957, Mel Tillis learned from a radio announcer that he had a new baby daughter. Her name was Pamela Yvonne Tillis, and she would grow up to be as gifted and ambitious as her father. She would also have as many obstacles to overcome on the way to the top as Mel Tillis -- a man who fought his way past his famous stutter to become the King of Country.Pam's raw talent for the blues, and a burning passion to prove herself, drove her into the smoky bars of Nashville when she was only fifteen -- and into a destructive relationship with alcohol that landed her in a near-fatal, disfiguring car crash. But Pam wouldn't let her scars -- or countless operations -- stop her from achieving her goals. Today, through hard work, gutsy determination, and sheer talent, Pam Tillis has shot to the top of the country charts, won numerous awards, and is one of country music's top female stars.
