    Country music legend Mel Tillis dead at 85
    Fox News, Nov 19 2017

    Country music singer Mel Tillis, whose six-decade career included hits such as Sawmill, I Got The Hoss, I Ain’t Never and Coca-Cola Cowboy and who never let his stutter get in the way of him becoming a legend, died November 19 at Munroe Regional Medical Center in Ocala, Florida. He is believed to have died from respiratory failure after he never recovered from intestinal issues he has been battling since 2016. Tillis recorded more than 60 albums and had 35 top ten singles in his decades-long career. His 1979 Coca-Cola Cowboy was one of his biggest hits, along with Southern Rains in 1980 and I Believe In You in 1978.

    Tillis also appeared in television shows such as Hee Haw and Hollywood Squares and movies including Cannonball Run and Smokey & The Bandit 2.
