Grand Ole Opry Member Mel McDaniel Dies

Grand Ole Opry member Mel McDaniel.

GAC extends condolences to the loved ones of Grand Ole Opry member Mel McDaniel. Mel, 68, passed away earlier tonight after battling cancer.

A native of Checotah, Okla., Mel became an Opry member in 1986. He’s best known for his hits “Baby’s Got Her Blue Jeans On” (1981), “Big Ole Brew” (1982), the No. 1 “Louisiana Saturday Night” (1984) and “Stand Up” (1985).

At the time of his passing, Mel was working on what his website said would be his last studio album, entitled The Last Ride.

Here’s a YouTube clip we found of Mel singing “Baby’s Got Her Blue Jeans On.” Rest in peace, Mel, and thanks for the music.
