Kaskaskia College will welcome award-winning country singer Pam Tillis to the campus on Saturday, Dec. 1.
Tillis will be performing several Christmas favorites, as well as a number of her hits during a special acoustic performance that begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Jane Knight Auditorium.
The daughter of country legend Mel Tillis, she has carved quite a legacy for herself in country music, starting with the release of her album “Put Yourself in My Place,” in 1990, which included the hit "Maybe it was Memphis."
Her career includes six No. 1 and 17 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, she also starred on Broadway to rave reviews in the musical “Smokey Joe’s Cafe.”
In 2007, she released “Just in Time for Christmas,” which featured some of her favorite Christmas songs, as well as three new compositions.
The album included “The Rockin’ Christmas Medley,” a duet with her father. This year, Tillis released “Recollection,” a 14-track album that features new versions of her past hits.
Tickets are $27 for adults and $15 for youth (age 18 and under) and can be purchased by calling the KC Box Office at 545-3223 or going online to www.kaskaskia.edu/SOE.
