Mini Bio (1)

With a gold and platinum string of highly prolific albums, Pam Tillis has been a formidable force in country music since her first Arista Records release back in 1990, when she paved the way for a new breed of female vocalists to follow.

Pam's incredible career boasts six Number One and seventeen Top Ten hits, in addition to a Grammy Award and two CMA Awards including "Female Vocalist of the Year." The first artist inducted into the Grand 'Ole Opry in the new millennium, Pam also starred on Broadway to rave reviews in the musical "Smokey Joe's Cafe."

Often described as an "innovator," Pam has achieved international success and critical acclaim not only as a performer, but also as a songwriter and producer, carving a path in music history that is uniquely her own.

She is, after all, a superstar as well as a survivor. A child of Music City royalty and a former rebel, she was determined to find her own way as a singer and songwriter - and she succeeded. A CMA Female Vocalist of the Year, she has written songs for some of the top singers in and beyond Nashville, including more than a few of her own hits.

She knows what it's like to break the platinum barrier, to top the singles charts time and again, to bask in an ovation at her induction as a member of the Opry or play in the intimate hush of the Bluebird Cafe. She has bathed in the lights of Broadway, posed for glamor magazine spreads, sung ballads in Bay Area bistros, batted wicked one-liners back to Tom Bergeron on Hollywood Squares, even made cameos in movies.

But no matter where she wandered, Pam Tillis never lost her connection to country music - even when country began to lose touch with itself. Trends came and went, and though she rolled easily with the tides and drew something from every new twist, she was aware that changes come with a cost, even as the business side of country flourished.
