On Friday, October 5th at 7:30pm in the USCL Bundy Auditorium, you will get your chance to sing along with some well-known artists Pam Tills, Terri Clark, and Susy Bogguss. The Chicks with Hits is a lively and interactive show. One you will be sure to have a great time.
Spending a few minutes talking to Pam offered a small clue of how this show will go. She called from Crockett, Texas, and while talking, she was approached by a woman and her son, Pam paused our interview to allow the son to have a picture with the singer.
Pam said. “This is the kind of show where we want everyone to sing along. We will be playing all our hits, songs the people will know.” This is the second Chicks with Hits tour. The trio has been playing in both large and small venues across the nation.
She was pleased with the intimacy that the Bundy Auditorium will provide. She wants the audience to be interactive and enjoy the evening. Pam said. “We want the show to be a celebration of the records.”
She spoke about some of the accomplishments of her fellow artists. “Terri was just inducted into the Canadian Hall of Fame and has a new album, Susy has had one of her best touring years ever.”
As we talked about the show’s origins, Pam explained that it was developed to be a female artist tour. “Throughout the years, women musicians have not gotten to work together often. This is a great time for me. The show is a different experience and it allows us to compare notes with other girls”.
As the child of Country music royalty, Pam Tillis was determined from a young age to find her own way in music as a singer and songwriter. Pam has always insisted on writing and cutting songs that speak from the soul. With 6 number one hits and 14 top ten singles, Pam knows all about breaking the platinum barrier. With more than 30 singles charting on
US Billboard charts and selling more than 7 Million copies of her studio albums, Pam’s critical acclaim has not diminished. Sony Records’ “It’s All Relative” (a tribute to Mel Tillis) was USA Today’s #4 Country Album of the Year and most recently Pam has released 3 albums from her own record label Stellar Cat Records landing her a #1 on the European ECMA Chart.
Pam is a 15-time CMA nominee and 2-time winner, a 9-time Academy of Country Music Award nominee, a 2-time Grammy award winner and 6-time Grammy nominee, an American Music Award’s nominee. Most recently, a 2-time IBMA nominee and one-time winner.
As a songwriter, Pam’s songs have been recorded by respected names throughout all genres of music, including Chaka Khan, Juice Newton, Dan Seals, Gloria Gaynor, Conway Twitty and Highway 101. She currently has a recurring role on the hit TV show Nashville, performed an extended run on Broadway in New York in Smokey Joe’s Cafe and is a proud member of The Grand Ole Opry.
