Country Legend Mel Tillis Recovering from Colon Surgery
Tillis’ publicist confirmed the star had undergone surgery, but denied his condition was critical. As a result of his latest health issue, the singer was forced to scrap his slot on this weekend’s Country Music Cruise. Fellow Country Music Hall of Fame member Bobby Bare will take his place. Tillis underwent heart surgery at the TriStar Centennial Heart & Vascular Center in Nashville in March 2014.
