Listen to Mel Tillis on iHeartRadio

Mel Tillis is back home. 

The Country Music Hall of Famer's daughter, singer Pam Tillis, announced in a Facebook post that her father was released from the hospital on Friday.  She says Mel "did great and is feeling good."  

Pam adds that her 81-year-old dad "means the world" to her, and she's "so happy to have him" in her life. 


Mel spent last week in the hospital after undergoing what was described as a "routine heart procedure" at TriStar Centennial Medical Center in Nashville on March 9th.
