Grammy winner Pam Tillis to appear at Playhouse

On August 23, Cumberland County Playhouse presents an acoustic evening with country music superstar Pam Tillis. A child of Music City royalty and a former rebel, this CMA Female Vocalist of the Year has written songs for some of the top singers in and beyond Nashville, including more than a few of her own hits.
She has broken the platinum barrier, topped the singles charts time and again, appeared on Broadway, posed for glamour magazines and appeared in movies and on television. But no matter where she wandered, Pam Tillis never lost her connection to country, writing and recording songs that speak from the soul. The results have been records like the critically acclaimed It's All Relative (a tribute to her father, the great Mel Tillis).
"What I'm doing is country — but not necessarily the kind that you hear on the airwaves these days," says Ms. Tillis. “[It’s] a little bit more like the country I remember from my formative years, the country music of my youth." 
With It's All Relative, which she affectionately calls "the Dad album," Tillis produced one of the most memorable discs to have come out of Nashville in years. It was a bold statement and it set the stage for the even more assertive Rhinestoned album, the first she released on her own label. With total creative control, she let her heart lead the way toward material that she could perform honestly and emotionally.

An Acoustic Evening with Pam Tillis is sponsored by Gernt Insurance and will be presented at 7:30 p.m.

Currently onstage at the Playhouse are The King and I, rated G, sponsored by Holiday Inn Express/Comfort Suites/Hampton Inn through August 30; Man of La Mancha, rated PG-13, co-sponsored by Cumberland County Bank and Dr. Anthony Wilson, MD through September 27; and Ring of Fire, Rated PG, sponsored by Stonehaus Winery through October 19.

All CCP productions are made possible through sponsor support, with additional support provided by the Tennessee Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts.
