Country star Pam Tillis is performing Friday, March 4, at the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center with her Pam Tillis Trio.
Tillis is known for her endearing stage presence, captivating voice and inspiring lyricism. Tillis’ hits include “Maybe It Was Memphis,” “All the Good Ones Are Gone” and “Shake the Sugar Tree.”
Tillis grew up in Nashville, as one of six children of famed country singer and songwriter Mel Tillis, who introduced her to country from an early age. She first performed at the Grand Ole Opry at 8 years old. Tillis also began her career as a guitarist and pianist around that time, her guitar skills being self-taught.
After signing with Warner Bros. Records, Tillis released her first single and first album in the early 1980s. By the time the ’90s rolled around, Tillis was with record label Arista Nashville, and she climbed the country charts with multiple singles. She signed with Sony Music Entertainment/Epic Roots in 2002 before launching her own record label, Stellar Cat Records, in 2007.
Tillis is no stranger to the emotional range and power of country music, and she continues to share her understanding and appreciation for the genre through her performances.
She is playing at the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center on the Belle Glade campus of Palm Beach State College this Friday, March 4, at 7:00 p.m. For more information go to palmbeachstate.edu/theatre/dollyhand.
