Classic Rewind: Mel Tillis – ‘Stateside’

    Introduced by George Morgan, Mel performs his #17 single from 1966. Mel’s vocal is spot on here but the back-up singers go off-key in a few places. Ouch.
    “Stateside” was Mel’s second single for the Kapp label. His first Kapp single “Mental Revenge” failed to chart for Mel but the song became a #12 hit for Waylon Jennings in 1967. Mel re-recorded the song for the MGM label a decade later and took it to #15 in early 1976.
