You Ain’t Gonna Believe This


Grand Ole Opry star Mel Tillis is well established as a songwriter, actor and country music legend, yet the writer behind the devastating Kenny Rogers classic “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town” and Waylon Jennings’ “Mental Revenge” also has a well-known love of comedy. For the self-effacing singer, cracking jokes at his own pronounced stutter has been part of his comedic onstage patter for years, and his audiences love it. As comfortable joking as singing on this generous 23-track disc, Mel makes wisecracks on topics ranging from Sunday church suppers to elderly romance to changing cultural norms. A performer at heart, Mel doesn’t veer away from music completely—he includes three comical tunes, “Huntin’ Buddies,” “Slowin’ Down” and “Who’s Gonna Wear the Dress.”
