Pam Tillis Finishes Tribute Album

Pam Tillis covers 13 of her famous father’s songs for her upcoming album, It’s All Relative. The Mel Tillis classics include “I Ain’t Never,” “So Wrong,” “Heart Over Mind” and “Detroit City.” Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Trisha Yearwood, Marty Stuart, Delbert McClinton, the Jordanaires and Rhonda Vincent all appear on the album, as does Tillis himself. “A lot of people don’t realize what an incredible career my dad has had and how many No. 1 hit songs he wrote, recorded and won awards for. These aren’t just the songs I love; these are my earliest memories,” Pam Tillis said. “Quite literally, these were the songs that rocked my cradle — especially because my mom couldn’t carry a tune!” It’s All Relative, her first project for Sony Nashville, releases on Aug. 27. 05/29/02
