Mel McDaniel, a member of the Grand Ole Opry who was best-known for his 1981 hit “Baby’s Got Her Blue Jeans On,” died March 31 at age 68 after battling cancer.

A native of Checotah, Okla., Mel moved to Nashville and landed jobs as a demo singer and songwriter before signing to Capitol Records in 1976.

He joined the Grand Ole Opry in 1986 and also scored with “Louisiana Saturday Night” and “Stand Up,” among other hits.

Despite his condition, he was able to participate in the Opry’s 85th anniversary celebration last fall.

Thomas Rhett Will Never Take Touring for Granted

Thomas Rhett is ready to hit the road and Bring The Bar To You in 2022!

Starting in June, Thomas will kick-off his Bring The Bar To You tour with back to back shows in Gilford, New Hampshire with openers Parker McCollum and Conner Smith.

After going through the last two years, Thomas says, “I’ll never take for granted being able to come see y’all and I’m so fired up to play some of these new ones that were made with these nights in mind. I have a feeling things are going to get loud – I’m counting down the days already!”
