Country music legend Mel Tillis is recovering in Nashville after having heart surgery over the weekend.
His daughter, Pam Tillis, released the following statement on Monday:
"Over the weekend, daddy required a routine heart procedure. He's doing fantastic and is expected to make a full recovery. In typical Mel Tillis fashion, he's already cutting up and cracking jokes with the nurses. Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated."
Tillis is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry. He has recorded more than 60 albums and has had 35 Top Ten singles.
