Pam Tillis Net Worth
Her estimated net worth is being updated.
As the daughter of country star Mel Tillis, she made her debut on the Grand Ole Opry at age 8, singing “Tom Dooley.” She also began taking piano lessons at this age, and taught herself how to play guitar by age 12. At 16, she was injured in a car accident and had to undergo several years of surgery, including facial reconstruction.
Tillis attended the University of Tennessee, where she performed in two different groups: a jug band called the High Country Swing Band, and a folk duo with Ashley Cleveland. She dropped out of college in 1976 to work at her father’s publishing company, writing the song “The Other Side of the Morning” for Barbara Fairchild.
Tillis then moved to California and founded a band called Freelight, which played jazz and rock. Upon returning to Nashville in 1979, she had her songs recorded by Gloria Gaynor, Darryl & Don Ellis, Tim Ryan, Molly and the Heymakers and Chaka Khan. After performing in the Bluebird Café in Nashville, she signed to Warner Bros. Records in the early 1980s.
In 1981, Tillis released her debut single “Every Home Should Have One.” It was followed by her debut album Above and Beyond the Doll of Cutey in 1983. In 1989, Tillis signed with Arista Nashville. Her first Arista single, “Don’t Tell Me What to Do”, was released in December 1990.
Tillis has acted in guest spots on television and on stage. In 1998, Tillis felt it was the right time to expand her acting repertoire. She appeared in back-to-back crossover episodes of Promised Land and Diagnosis: Murder on CBS and NBC’s L.A. Law. She has also appeared on Broadway in Smokey Joe’s Café which ran from 1995 to 2000. She has also appeared as herself in several episodes of the country music drama Nashville.
In 2002, Tillis was signed by Sony Music Entertainment / Epic Records roots subsidiary Lucky Dog and debuted It’s All Relative: Tillis Sings Tillis, a collection of her father’s material that finally found her embracing his legacy on her own terms.
In 2007, Tillis launched her own Record label, Stellar Cat Records. Her first album, RhineStoned, was released in April 2007. The Two singles released from RhineStoned were “Band in the Window” and “The Hard Way” both sent to country radio in 2007. Her second album on Stellar Cat Records Just in Time for Christmas, was released on November 13, 2007.

The Jackson County Fair opens with the Roots n Boots Country Music Jam with John Anderson, Little Texas, and Pam Tillis.
Pam Tillis is, of course, the daughter of the legendary Mel Tillis. Pam told WKHM that it was Minnie Pearl who got the ball rolling on the Tillis Family dynasty, which includes Pam’s CMA Vocalist of the Year in 1994 and a Grammy in 1999.
“He (Mel Tillis) was a tall, shy, skinny kid from Florida and he came up to Nashville to be a singer and before his ship came in, he found himself in Minnie Pearl’s road band for a short time playing rhythm guitar.” Pam said. She said that “he hadn’t quite gotten his confidence together, he was very embarrassed by his speech impediment.” She continued to say that Minnie Pearl sat Mel Tillis down and gave him the best advice that anyone had ever given him, and it carried on to his daughter, and the Tillis story turned out “a lot better than it did” Pam said.
