August 8th. Birthday of prolific singer/songwriter Mel Tillis (Lonnie Melvin Tillis, born August 8, 1932). Several of his compositions were big hits for other top artists – such as Detroit City [hit for Bobby Bare and for Tom Jones], I Aint Never [Webb Pierce],The Snakes Crawl At Night [Charlie Pride] and Ruby, Dont Take Your Love to Town [Kenny Rogers]. But he also scored several hits himself including reaching number 1 with his own version of ‘I ain’t never’, featured on B.A.C.M.S 30 track compilation CD:
