the chipley bugle

The Bugle covered last night's Awards Ceremony in Tallahassee. Check here to see the list of recipients. Harry Crews didn't show to receive his Hall of Fame Award, but Mel Tillis did, and he was delightful, humble, and charming. He brought along his high school English teacher, who said she couldn't get him to stop stuttering, and his ninety-five-year-old Sunday School teacher. You can watch Mel sing the great Bob Wills' song that Audrey sings in Requiem, Mass. (And if you like Bob Wills you'll love the new Willie Nelson, Asleep at the Wheel album of Wills' covers, Willie and the Wheel.)
