Although stories about Mel Tillis’ failing health are spreading throughout social media, spokesman Don Murry Grubbs has stated that the singer is recovering well from colon surgery.
As the posts spread on Friday (Jan. 15), Grubbs told The Tennessean, “Doctors said he’s doing fine and on the right track. He’s awake and watching television.” When contacted by MusicRow, Grubbs offered the same information.
On Tuesday (Jan. 12), it was announced that Tillis, 83, had to cancel an upcoming appearance on The Country Music Cruise due to the surgery, which requires several weeks of recovery time.
