Tillis will perform Oct. 14, 7:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale this week.
Tillis was a 2022 nominee for the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Daughter of country star Mel Tillis, she began performing in the ’80s but it wasn’t until 1990 she had her breakthrough album, “Put Yourself in My Place.”
She won CMA’s Female Vocalist of the Year in 1994 and scored a Grammy in 1999 for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals for “Same Old Train,” a song that appeared on “Tribute to Tradition,” featuring country songs from the 1950s through 1970s.
Tillis was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2000.
She has sold 7 million albums, had 13 top-10 hits, as well as six number-one chart toppers, including “Mi Vida Local,” “Shake the Sugar Tree,” and her signature “Maybe It was Memphis.”
Tillis founded her own record label, Stellar Cat, in 2007 and released her last album, “Looking for a Feeling,” in 2020. The artist describes it as a “rootsy ramble with spiritual and philosophical underpinnings and seventies overtones.”
Tickets to Tillis’ show at the Wilson Center go on sale for members of CFCC’s performing arts venue on Tuesday, March 28, at 10 a.m. before opening to the general public on Thursday, March 30, at 10 a.m.
