PAM TILLIS

Country music star Pam Tillis joins the Urban Green Lab Advisory Council as a legendary recording artist and performer, but also as a Nashville neighbor with a life-long passion for the environment and a deep knowledge of sustainable living. Often described as an “innovator,” Pam has achieved international success and critical acclaim not only as a performer, but also as a songwriter and producer, carving a path in music history that is uniquely her own.Pam’s incredible music career boasts six Number One and seventeen Top Ten hits, in addition to a Grammy Award and two CMA Awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year. The first artist inducted into the Grand ‘Ole Opry in the new millennium, Pam also starred on Broadway to rave reviews in the musical “Smokey Joe’s Cafe.”A child of Music City royalty and a former rebel, she was determined to find her own way as a singer and songwriter – and she succeeded. Pam has written songs for some of the top singers in and beyond Nashville, but never lost her connection to country music – even when country began to lose touch with itself.

With regard to sustainability, Pam feels that Urban Green Lab’s innovative programming model engages citizens in a highly compelling fashion, and offers effective tools for people to integrate greener living practices into their daily lives.
