Country music legend dead: Mel Tillis dies at 85 following health battle
His No. 1 songs were I Ain't Never, Good Woman Blues, Heart Healer, I Believe in You, Coca-Cola Cowboy and Southern Rains. In 1976, he was named the Country Music Association's Entertainer of the Year.
Tillis, meanwhile, became a major success on his own in the late 1960s and toured for decades, often using his stutter as a source of humour - though his stutter disappeared when he sang.
Besides being a successful recording artist, Tillis performed at the Grand Ole Opry and made frequent television appearances, as well as playing small roles in movies such as Smokey and the Bandit II and The Cannonball Run. He did commercials for Whataburger, a fast-food restaurant chain, the Tennessean reported.
Born Lonnie Melvin Tillis on August 8, 1932, "Mel" gained fame in the 1970s with a string of successful hits.
Tillis was raised in Pahokee, Florida, and developed his stutter as a child while being treated for malaria.

"He once spent an entire day at his place in Tennessee showing me all the memorabilia he'd gathered over the years where he gave me a pair of his stage boots", Shelton's account said.
