Mel Tillis returned to the stage of the Grand Ole Opry this weekend for his first performance since emergency quadruple bypass surgery in March, as part of Nashville’s annual CMA Music Fest. The singer might be recovering, but his sense of humor has remained unfettered. Tillis performed on both Friday and Saturday night (June 6 and 7), and plans on returning to the road later this month. Afterwards, the singer was asked by his publicist if he ever uses Twitter, and in true Tillis fashion, he thanked his loyal fans for their support during his recovery.

“I’ve been hearing from fans from all over the world,“ the 81-year-old singer responded. “Australia, New Zealand . . . everywhere! They’ve been praying for me! I miss them all so much, and I can’t wait to get back out there on the road to thank them in person!”

Tillis is planning on heading out on the road later this month. For a complete list of concert dates, which includes upcoming stops in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Texas, as well as all the news of everything Mel, visit hi website.
