Today, Tillis' daughter Pam Tillis released the following statement on the health status of the music legend:
"Over the weekend, Daddy required a routine heart procedure. He's doing fantastic and is expected to make a full recovery. In typical Mel Tillis fashion, he's already cutting up and cracking jokes with the nurses. Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated."
