Get-well wishes to Mel Tillis, following heart surgery this past weekend in Nashville.
"He's doing fantastic and is expected to make a full recovery," according to his daughter Pam Tillis.
"In typical Mel Tillis fashion, he's already cutting up and cracking jokes with the nurses. Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated."
