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 [2] 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.
