CHICKS WITH HITS

County Music Legends Terri Clark, Pam Tills and Suzy Bogguss Bring Their Hits to Seneca Allegany Resort and Casino
Kicking off October 2017 these ladies began their tour, Chicks with Hits, and have played dates through 2018, and we are thrilled they are continuing this unique show in 2019 making a stop at the Seneca Allegany Events Center on Saturday, February 9th at 7pm.
 
The architect of the show is a female powerhouse of country music, Terri Clark, who had wanted to put this all-female acoustic tour together to showcase the music, and add in the stories behind the songs, with some fun and laughter thrown in for an intimate evening performance like no other.
 
Clark’s vision came to fruition when friends and country music legends Pam Tillis and Suzy Bogguss joined in … and the rest - as they say - is pure country music history.
 
There is no shortage of material to draw from with 36 Top 10 singles between the three singer/songwriters, who have garnered numerous country music nominations and awards along the way to add to their highly acclaimed collection that has earned them their spots in country music history and in the hearts of fans all over the world.
 
I was fortunate enough to catch up with Pam Tillis to ask a couple of fun questions to gain a little insight on this country music superstar. As far as this show/tour, Tillis had this to offer … “Our music blends beautifully; we all have an appreciation for traditional, folk and country rock and share many of the same influences. Between the harmonies and the humor, it’s gonna be pretty darn fun.”
 
Three stars, three guitars, singing together all night. Get your tickets now to this one-of-a-kind country music show.
 
 
A CONVERSATION WITH PAM TILLS
 
HULICK: Who were your musical idols/influences growing up?
TILLIS: Early on it was my dad Mel Tillis of course. I had so many … like Judy Garland, Hank Williams, the Beatles, Flatts & Scruggs, Joni Mitchell, Bonnie Raitt, Gladys Knight … too many to name them all.
 
HULICK: Where were you the first time you heard your song on the radio?
TILLIS: It was November 1991, I was going down Old Hickory Blvd. with my son in the car and I literally had to pull into the parking lot of a Quick Save convenient store. We cried and hugged each other.
 
HULICK: What is your favorite album of yours and why?
TILLIS: I love the “Sweethearts Dance” album … that’s maybe the best … but “Tillis Sings Tillis”, my tribute to my Dad, is a close second.
 
HULICK: Who do you listen to these days?
TILLIS:  Everything. My favorite thing to do is use the app on my phone called Shazam, and when I’m out and about there’s always something playing that I get curious about like Dawes, Wilco, Joy Williams, the Revivalist … the last few things I checked out in the app … and we listen to old vinyl at our cabin in the woods … like Tea for the Tillerman … we make cocktails and marvel at the beauty of analogue.
 
HULICK: Any new projects in the works?
TILLIS: I have an album that I am two thirds through with. We start recording again in January.
 
HULICK:  Do you have a Western New York or Buffalo connection?
TILLIS: I’ve played so many great towns in Western New York. Great old theaters like in Jamestown where Lucille Ball is from, Chautauqua … I like learning about the history of the cities I visit. It’s such a different feeling than the south but the distinct flavors of the places I go are what make travel interesting.
 
HULICK: Describe for me what your best day would be like.
TILLIS: My best day? Hanging out at our farm with our dogs, gardening, walking by the creek, looking at wildflowers, fixing a great dinner then sitting by the fire pit as the stars come out. I’m pretty basic.
