CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Country singer Pam Tillis only had a few minutes to talk before she jumped on a flight from New Jersey back home to Nashville. It had been a crazy couple of days.
While, the Grammy-winning daughter of county legend Mel Tillis was trying to keep up with her usual busy schedule of shows and appearances, a series of storms passed through Branson, Mo. Several tornadoes touched down, damaging homes and businesses, including a house owned by Tillis' mother, which was severely damaged.
"The storms blew the roof off," she said.
Tillis said she's been dealing with moving her mother to another place.
"And that's no small feat," Tillis said, then laughed. "She has a lot of stuff."
Getting past the upheaval and getting back to work is foremost in her mind. She'll join the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra for concerts on Friday and Saturday. The shows are a rarity for her.
